What makes Portland Leather Goods so unique is our high-quality products with affordable prices. The traditional artisan method is to work with a very small team, producing high-quality products slowly. These goods are sold for high prices, due to the time and high cost of small-scale production, and customers work directly with the artist during the process. These goods are generally very high quality, are locally produced, and have inimitable character.
The traditional mass-production method is the opposite. A large group works quickly and efficiently to produce a lot of something. These productions work because each product is much less expensive. However, the items are generally lower quality, are not personalized, and it can be challenging to reach a real person to help you answer questions or get additional information.
Our method is different from both of these. We are artists who ensure the quality of everything we work on. We still hand-make all of our products from start to finish, work directly with our customers, and create personalized, top-quality leather goods with a lot of character. However, we've streamlined our process to be able to offer prices that even college students can afford!
