A Love of Leather
It occurred long ago, by happy accident, when as a student I wandered into a leather shop one day. I was struck by the beauty, the scent and the touch of leather. It became a love that has lasted a lifetime.
After years as a leatherworker creating and selling our goods, I chose to study for a degree in Industrial Design degree from IIT. It was with the hope of becoming an inventor and that my designs might sell around the world. And an inventor I indeed became, with my toys and games selling everywhere for decades.
But leather has been my other great joy all these many years. Every place I lived - North Carolina, Texas, Chicago and New York- my leather shop has always comes with me and I love everything about being in it. The earthy scent, the look and the ‘hand’- the way it feels when touched, soft, hard, glossy or firm. The many colors; pigskin, goat, lamb and cow, and the myriad multitudes of brown; latigo, oak tan, oil tan, garment leather....they wander in my head like old friends.
Lund Leather is my way of sharing my passion for leather with you. Our line consists of the finest leather duffle bags, totes, satchels, messenger bags, and more, designed to help you shine in your busy modern life, and truly made to last a lifetime. My wish is that you love, enjoy, delight in carrying, become inspired by, go to many places with, and simply love life more with one of our leather goods. Simple perhaps. But nothing more can I hope than that.
Our best to you and yours,
Bruce Lund, Founder & Leatherworker Extraordinaire
