A third-generation American manufacturer, co-founder Joe Lotuff has always believed that creating superior-quality goods fosters success and dignity. A de-emphasis on handcrafted items in a digital age coupled with the ubiquity of disposable products prompted Joe to create a company that could contemporarily celebrate artful craftsmanship. With items distinguished by timeless, understated designs, an uncompromising dedication to the best materials and construction, and a steadfast promise to do everything here in America, Lotuff Leather was born. To date, every single item embosses with our Lotuff Leather logo has been crafted from start to finish in New England. And we're going to keep it that way.
We lovingly craft each piece using the best methods we know. Each step, from start to finish, is deliberate and methodical. From the cutting to the polishing to the stitching, we strive for perfection, not expediency. The result of our efforts manifests itself in multiple ways. The most obvious is the aesthetic. The designs are timeless, proportional, and elemental. The leather is uncorrected and vegetable tanned, allowing it age and develop character. But beyond what meets the eye you'll find little details of integrity that make a Lotuff bag so fundamentally strong. From hand-tied knots wraps to perfectly painted edges, these are the things that are often overlooked and take the longest, but result in the most special bag you can find.
In 2013, we opened our studio in Providence, Rhode Island. Providence, a city with a storied history of industrial might and an unparalleled contemporary level of creative energy, was the perfect place for our expansion. It's a studio unlike any other out there. Many members on our team are young, local artists who help bring our exquisitely made pieces to life while still maintaining their own galleries and studio space. They work side by side industry veterans who have been making leather bags for years. Through your support and appreciation of our work, we've been able to smartly grow and continually hire artisans eager to learn the art of leather making.
We put love, passion, and care into each piece we make. We want your Lotuff piece to be a part of your life's narrative, becoming a trusty companion each step of the way. We guarantee every Lotuff Leather product against material and workmanship defect for the life of the registered user. We also guarantee your absolute satisfaction.
