WESTCOAST/EAST LEATHER specializes in creating functional and affordable leather carry goods..

WESTCOAST/EAST LEATHER got its start in 2012 when I, the owner and designer, rediscovered leather and all its possible uses.

And being a person of many interests -- DIY projects, oil painting and British sports cars -- I then started making leather objects to organize my tools. The idea for the MG tool roll came from wanting to carry essential tools and have them fit neatly in the boot of the my 1962 MGA.

What has been the most fun about working with the leather and designing tool rolls is the universe of possibilities and uses for these carry goods. Mechanics, riders, stylists, artists and even bartenders and oyster shuckers! The list keeps growing and the products keep evolving.

I've been on Etsy for a few years now. My aim has always been to offer high quality leather goods for a reasonable price. The most satisfying part of crafting these goods has been working with Etsy buyers and hearing how they've been happily surprised with these handmade products, as gifts and for themselves, and how they are putting them to use.

    Mechanics and riders and painters and bartenders...oh my! Little did I realize when I started making tool rolls how many uses people would find for these compact organizers. Have a new idea or another need? Let me know.

Additional policies and FAQs

We use high quality buttery soft leather for handbags and durable, but soft, leather for our tool rools. It is normal for leather to have scars, insect bites, wrinkles and veining on even high quality leather. These are “natural characteristics” of genuine leather. Our leathers at westcoast/east will have some of these blemishes.

Our tool rolls are made with oiled leather, which appears "aged" or distressed when stretched or rubbed. This is normal and is indicative of quality leather and makes the leather more water resistant. Marks can be easily rubbed out.

We do a finish rub all on our leather before they are shipped. Any time you want to bring back the original finish you can re-rub the roll and treat it with the leather conditioner of your choice. Use saddle soap or a moist towel to clean the product if needed.
