Hello, welcome to Clintonville Leather.

I am devoted to creating heirloom quality items from the finest full grain vegetable tanned leather from the USA and Belgium which is produced in a sustainable and environmentally friendly manner.

I strongly believe vegetable tanned leather is a superior alternative to man made synthetics which pollute our earth. Leather is biodegradable and my items are built with maximum durability in mind.


If there is something you do not see feel free to ask; I am also available for custom work.

Sincerely,
Bill Carnes

About

Clintonville Leather

Clintonville Leather was funded by a pedicab not a kickstarter campaign. For 12 years I operated a pedicab and collected leather working tools and blacksmithing tools. It is hard brutal work and it taught me about durability for the things I make.

Inspiration: I have always been inspired by the durability and simplicity of the Brooks saddle. After a cross country bicycle trip it dawned on me to construct a wallet with the same simplicity and durability. Thus the first riveted wallet was born. Many people have tried to imitate the design which I think is pretty cool.

I am constantly amazed by the symbiotic harmony in which things work together in nature.

Design:

My designs are original and focus on being intuitive to use and above all as durable as possible. This is not optional.

Questions:

I am always available to answer questions.

Wholesale availability: In most cases items are sold at labor + materials and NOT marked up therefore there is no wholesale discount available as items are sold at my cost. This said I am able to offer similar items with reduced labor and less expensive materials if you would like private branded goods for your business. Bulk discounts are available for corporate events, weddings or special events.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

Custom orders are accepted upon confirmation feel free to inquire. Items may be personalized with initials at no extra charge.

Sizing details

It is very important to measure when applicable. I can't be held responsible for inaccurate measurements.

Care instructions

Everything that leaves my shop is fully finished and can be left unkept for years. I strongly advise a quarterly conditioning of all leather goods. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. I have a page on maintenance here: http://clintonvilleleather.blogspot.com/p/maintenance.html

I take great pride in what I make I am always available to give maintenance advice even years after the sale.

Wholesale availability

Please inquire for bulk orders

Are your products made in the USA

Everything is 100% manufactured by me in Ohio. I source the most sustainable materials from around the world with an emphasis on local and US made. Currently I am trying to make USA made belt buckles available.
