Hi there! My name is Tim Ung and I'm a licensed architect in New York with a passion for leatherworking. I've always been fascinated by crafts people who are able to take simple raw materials and turn them into a beautiful product - kind of like Architecture, but at a smaller scale. I started Mars Leather Company in mid-2018 when my leatherworking hobby grew into a collection of products that began to fill my house.
As I continue finding inspiration in products that I would find useful in my life, I sketch my ideas, refine it, and eventually make several prototypes until I'm satisfied with the final product. All of my leather products are made from quality leather (full grain or top grain only) and showcase the beauty of the animal's hide - imperfections such as scars, bug bites, branding, and so on. Everything at Mars Leather Company is sourced in USA and handcrafted by me.
I take my time making every leather product to ensure that it’s of the quality that I strive to achieve. This means that only a limited quantity of products will be available at any time. I hope you find a product that you love and enjoy at my Etsy shop linked below!
