HANDMADE WITH LOVE

 

At MacKenzie83, we honor the heritage of leather craft. We take great care in selecting our materials. Ensuring their high quality -- we hand pick only the best leather hides and fabrics from local suppliers. Each piece is cut and sewn by hand.

HANDCRAFTED AMERICAN LEATHER

We use the finest American made leather hides for all of our handbags and cuffs. Our leathers are tanned and treated by hand, a process that reveals individual textures and characteristics.

WHERE OUR LEATHER COMES FROM MATTERS

// DISCOVER THE DIFFERENCE //

The idea is simple. Our products are always ethically sourced and manufactured, with authentic, artisan quality.

 

// FARM TO ARM® COLLECTION //

For the Farm to Arm® Collection we source hides that originate from US certified organic free-range farms, and are exclusively a by-product of the meat industry. 

This collection does not support factory farming and minimizes our carbon footprint by keeping all materials and manufacturing local.

Our vegetable tanned leather is made without the use of harmful chemicals, free from polyurethanes (plastic), chrome or heavy metals, formaldehyde and other known dangerous chemicals. All colors and dyes are from natural and non-toxic sources.  

Staying in tune with our eco-friendly leather, all of our handbag linings are made of organic cotton, which are dyed or digitally printed with sustainable non-toxic colors, using zero water waste.

The Farm to Arm® collection also features up-cycled fire hose reinforcements that come from local NY fire stations. Our custom hardware is developed from recycled industrial metal.
