Crafted to last a lifetime... The story started in 1955 when Jack Standring opened his first shop in Ambleside, the heart of the English Lake District. Jack’s passion was leather goods. Every hide they buy is unique and needs the eye of an expert to get the beauty to reveal itself. They keep their leather natural and soft-to-touch, just as Jack insisted all those years ago. We hope you love your Lakeland Leather for years to come.
