It all started when I ordered a gorgeous leather business bag. I was excited. It was one of those amazing bags would last forever, and I fully intended to give it to my son when I finished with it 50 years from now. It was indeed beautiful and well-built, but the one I ordered was simply too big and heavy for my purposes. So I sent it back. And I began to wonder…
What if I built my own bag to my specific specifications? The exact size and shape I need to hold my stuff?
Voyageur Leather was born.
We sold some leather bags and other goods to a few stores and to many individuals, but I just couldn’t get the business off the ground due to my “day job.” I was exceptionally busy, but still longing to create beautiful leather goods for people who appreciated great quality and luxurious leather.
Because leather jewelry was a part of the business from very early on, I began making prototypes of jewelry that included leather and other things. Semi-precious stones and silver and gold were included in these “other things” and I began with jewelry for men. Soon I had made a bunch of bracelets, earrings and necklaces – for guys and gals – out of semi-precious stones, sterling silver, gold vermeil, pearls, leather and other precious materials. I decided then that Voyageur Leather would expand to include many different types of amazing jewelry.
I finally arrived at the point in many a man’s life when change is not only necessary but also imminent. My wife and I decided to launch Voyageur properly, and we’re not looking back. Please peruse this website and take a look at the ever-growing family of fine leather goods and jewelry. We love this stuff, we wear it ourselves, and we want to provide you with the opportunity to wear or carry a small, beautiful piece of God’s creation.
