Welcome to Craftsmen's Choice

Selected by our Crafstmen for you



After 52 years of crafting our small family-owned business want to give customers something new: Craftsmen’s Choice.

The Leather Satchel Co. was founded 52 years ago by Steven ‘Uncle Steve’ Hanshaw. From a passion for making, tinkering with leather and creating products of value that people could afford, Uncle Steve started a journey centred around crafting with new leathers, experimenting with new techniques and satisfying new needs.

Today at The Leather Satchel Co. we are doing all we can to keep these ideal’s alive. Our team make some wonderful and unique items, or sometimes make small changes to our existing products that make them look and feel that bit more special. We thought our customers would love to see these creations in all their glory while giving us the chance to explain a little behind the story of each and to thank you, our amazing customers, who allow us to come in every day and do what we love so much.

Our passion is firmly at the centre of all we do. As a small, family-owned business, we pay homage to our craftsmen who make these beautiful items, by hand, each and every day.

To our customers, from our craftsmen…
