Original Launch Bio Announcement

My name is Christopher of Christoph Joseph Leather. I'm brand new to Etsy.
Currently I am in the process of launching an authentic custom leather-goods business primarily focused as a leather goods fashion accessories designer brand. My Target Date is Jan 2018. However I'm making a first preliminary step here with my very
first listing being posted here , inception date Oct 2017.

Now, I am making my groundbreaking debut of some of my special original
one-off custom artisan leather wallets I made. It has been my dream and vision to become
a reputable brand in the leather industry and this is a gradual leap forward.
Let me briefly share with you my mission statement:

"Christoph Joseph is a brand that sets the standard in providing consistent,
expertly crafted premium leather goods and accessories.
Each and every quality inspired product we produce translates an expression
of a lifestyle, driven to represent the discerning consumer.
We proudly proclaim that our original statement pieces are made in the U.S.A
and are intended to last generations."

Right now, I'm starting out with primarily wallets but have a goal of branching out into
other leather accessories such as bags , belts , cases, bracelets, and more when I have
an actual full size factory up and running. I'm at the pre-stage phase now. The proceeds
of each custom item sold is a contribution to the founding of my business such as purchasing tools of the trade, machinery and equipment.

Please stay tuned and watch as our business is being established , takes shape and new exciting fantastic products come to the market as part of our development.

Make a statement and make it Significant.
If you need something custom made just message me so we can collaborate on your proposed project

Take Care

About ChristophJoseph

Sales 643
On Etsy since 2017

As an artist I strive to express and convey my talents and artistry into each and every piece crafted with the utmost care, quality and attention to detail.

My story starts many years ago as a young child. I was born gifted with the ability to draw
and make things with my hands. I think it ran in Italian family blood. As I came from a home
with talented parents in Upstate New York. They always were into crafting things from scratch.
That tradition continues till this very day from making ornaments, decorative picture frames, clothing, signs, etc.

As a young adult art was always my forte . I excelled at it and received scholarships and awards in school. I always wanted to be a car designer or architect from early on so after
high school I attended college in the arts field focusing on drafting and illustration .
Even as a child I had always been kind of an introvert and intensely focused on art.

By trade I have been a professional woodworker , cabinet and furniture maker. Back in
1992 I started my first art related job as a draftsman and designer at a high-end custom
furniture and cabinet shop making exquisite pieces for celebrities and people of high financial caliber. I learned the art of woodworking inside out and branched off and had my own custom
cabinet shop which I had for 12 successful years.

I discovered leather crafting by accident years ago when I had to spend a few months in jail for a regretfully stupid mistake and having never been in any kind of trouble in my life before.
There , the Institution had a leather craft program and hobby shop where I had access to learn how to work with leather , make projects for families, gifts and send them home.

Wood and leather material transcend each other and I realized I was very good at it .
It came naturally as I had experience and vast knowledge in wood carving.
I fell in love with making things out of leather so much that I want to
pursue it as a career even though I am currently still working in the woodworking field.
I turned a negative situation into a positive and found a hidden treasure. In the worst
time of my life when I hit rock bottom, God and leather crafting got me through it.

Some of my hobbies and interests include:
Serving in addiction recovery ministry, playing in my church worship band, building race cars and restoring classic vehicles, woodworking, art ,graphic design
Sushi, site seeing , enjoying life and a avid concert goer.

Finally , I must reiterate that crafting custom wallets for people with all sorts of passions with themes like Faith and Country Pride I truly enjoy.

Now I have my sights set on establishing a reputable leather goods brand with my own
authentic style which I hope with diligence will be successful. That's the short version of
my story/testimony.

Regards,
CJM
