About Fred Eisen Leather
“Both Brooklyn Heights and New Hope have been the most wonderfully accepting, artistic communities to be a part of,” says Fred. “It has been our goal to create fine quality and interesting leather products of all kinds.”
Fred Eisen started doing leathercraft as a hobby even before studying Art and Design at Southern Illinois University. Then he spent 8 years traveling around the country designing and making bags, briefcases, and clothing in Los Angeles, Chicago, and New York. After making and designing products for many companies and stores in New York, he decided to pursue his passion for leather by opening his own shop in 1978. After 34 inspiring years in business, we continue the joy of bringing fine leather products to our customers, that are both currently in style and affordable.
