Sitting on a chair in the late hours of a cold January with nothing but an old piece of leather in hand, all i could think of was the fondness i’ve always had for the raw hold of it. Having been born in Kanpur the “Leather city of the world” or as the world says “manchester of the East” justifies the inclination. I’ve always had keenness for the ways in which leather could be made to use for all sorts of requirements. All my line of products and the ones in the making are handcrafted by local artisans at our factory in heart of vintage kanpur. When it comes to leather, I go back to the minimalist fashion mantra i.e. buy less, choose well, make it last. I pick classic, buy-it-for-life pieces that work with an entire wardrobe and are made as ethically and sustainably as possible. Which clearly reflects in the products i make. I feel that there is enough room in the market to create and scale a well-designed, high-quality line of leather accessories that could be retailed at affordable prices. That led to the genesis of HR Leatherworks. And all the rest will be history in making.
