How it all started

When Helmi and Philip Olson fist moved to Tennessee they had been traveling for a long while. Helmi's purse, that she had gotten from her grandma, was starting to wear out on the inside, but the leather body of the purse was still in great shape after all the years of use. The durability of the leather and the style of her purse inspired Helmi to design and make her first own leather purse. After buying a little leather and trial and error she made something similar to her grandma's purse, but with her own touch. Soon people started noticing her purse, and after finding out she made it, also asking about her making one for them. This began the process of turning the hobby into a business.

Then in 2020 when the pandemic hit the US and Philip was off of work for a few weeks he also began to design wallets for fun. After many failed attempts, and a lot of help from Helmi, he finally made a wallet that they loved. They published the wallet on Facebook and Instagram and sales here and there started coming in. That is how Helmi and Philip began working as a couple to build the company called Olson Leather.

The art of leatherwork inspired them to think outside the box and find new creative ways to bring quality leather goods. They began to look for ways to bring a safer and more natural way to condition, protect and restore people's leather goods at an affordable price. With much research and many batches they developed the perfect fully organic leather balm.

Today Helmi and Philip Olson work together as a family in their workshop to bring the highest quality leather goods and leather products to their customers. We would love to invite you to join our story at Olson Leather co. Every time you buy any products from Olson Leather you are directly supporting our family. Our heart is to bring beautiful, long lasting quality leather goods, like Helmi's grandma's purse to more and more people to enjoy for generations.
