Founded and established in Central Florida, Hellbrand Leatherworks began in 2006 when a well-known luxury branded wallet started coming apart after only three years in service. After examining the flaws and breaking points, Edward, Hellbrand’s founder, decided to learn more about the leatherworking trade. Under the guidance of Jarvis Hellbrand, a leatherworker trained in the old ways when everything was made by hand, Edward learned and mastered the techniques of the old world, and applied them to making products relevant in the new world.
Fast forward through years of making wallets, key chains, and of course, custom Panerai watch straps for himself and close friends, the decision was made to bring these products to market. Each piece is cut by hand from premium hides tanned in the U.S.A. Each seam is manually holepunched with an awl, and hand stitched using a traditional saddle stitch process and/or sewn using a vintage sewing machine and finished by hand. The end product is not only beautiful but durable.
All of the products are made using leather from tanneries such as Horween, Hermann Oak, and Wickett & Craig. Each item is made in the traditions of the old world, when things lasted for decades rather than years. Hellbrand Leatherworks brings its products back from a time when something like a wallet lasted twenty years, instead of going through twenty wallets within a few years.
