As a designer who has been used to work the whole day behind a screen, I realized I was missing something important in my life and that was the opportunity to do something with my hands so I quit my job, learned the skills and craftsmanship and started Duke & Sons Leather. I’m a fan of the amazing atmosphere of heritage goods and brands. I love the fact that many of these companies have the wisdom to know the difference between progress and improvement, which is why a pair of Red Wings from 1905, or a Filson jacket from 1914 are largely the same as the way they make them today. They hit on a good thing, and were smart enough to stick with it. Inspired by a real craftsman, I decided to learn the skills myself and just by ‘learning by doing’ I have managed to teach myself the making of quality leather goods.
