Born In the heart of se portland


Portland Workshop and Leon Studio

a space for creation

Starting in a SE Portland garage, our product quality, price and amazing customer service struck a chord... which meant growth. We grew to fill our sun-drenched 24,000 sq. ft. workshop in SE Portland.

Our workshop layout is ever-changing, especially now during Covid-19, but we love our 28 ft ceilings, handmade workbenches and 560 window panes letting the sunlight beam in. Oh, and did we mention that delicious leather scent?

We’re a group of artists, painters, actors, woodworkers, teachers, writers, photographers, designers, anthropologists & more who want creative outlets in all parts of life.

Our team comes together to be creative, to work with our hands, and to enjoy spending the day doing something we love.

our Artisan Quality

What makes Portland Leather so unique is our high-quality products coupled with affordable prices. We exclusively source U.S. cowhides and have them tanned to perfection in North America's finest tanneries in Leon, Mexico.  

We use full grain leather, the strongest and most durable leather available, to create stunning products that only get better with age. And we don't play when it comes to our sewing machines either. Our industrial sewing machines stitch the leather with waxed thread, ensuring quality for years to come.

We are so grateful for the support from our loyal customers. To help expand our product lines we are proud to have begun partnerships with local leather artisans in Leon who will take new Portland Leather designs and turn our custom leather into products you can treasure for a lifetime.
