Meet the folks behind Leather Works Minnesota and our most recent Makers Alongside collaboration: Kent, Lee & Nathan.
LWM consists of husband and wife team, Kent and Lee, along with their son Nathan and a few other team members. Kent and Lee began the company from a basement in 1999 but have now grown to craft their quality leather goods from the famous art district of Lowertown, St. Paul.
Not only is the company helping rejuvenate the Lowertown neighborhood through a massive development project, but they are supporting the American Made movement. Like HDH, bringing back American made through quality products and materials is at the forefront of the LWM’s motivation. In fact, the majority of their leather is supplied by Red Wing’s S.B. Foot Tanning Company which is located less than one hours drive south of St. Paul.
Each LWM product is made by hand and thoroughly inspected at each phase to ensure that the final product is of the finest standards. This excellence in quality and care is made to be affordable for the average customer, something that the company takes great pride in. It’s no wonder why LWM’s customer base is incredibly loyal and rapidly growing!
