Olivier Leather

Olivier Emery picked up and fell in love with leather work during the summer months of 2019. His mission is to design, build and share modern pieces that are timeless, classic and will last decades. He aims to create sophisticated work that invites the user and viewer to reassess what leather goods should look like.

His studies have ranged from fine furniture making, general carpentry, education and art. During his schooling to become a teacher, he was able to dive into the fractal world of art and excelled in mediums such as ceramics and drawing & design.

Though born in Ottawa Ontario, Olivier grew up on the west coast of Canada. Victoria, British Columbia is now his home.

Olivier continues to be inspired by the ‘super natural’ beauty of the west coast where he now works as a middle school educator and practices his craft.
