Our trained professionals are experts at understanding the many nuances of leather. We manage the entire process from start to finish, from your initial consultation to determine the best approach to your project right through dyeing and pattern making, cutting and finishing, to final delivery of your leather.

At Townsend Leather we are craftsmen and artisans of leather, not just distributors or marketers. For us, this is a life passion and a family owned business, not just another job. Our company was founded in 1969 by the Kucel family and our leather is produced in our state-of-the-art facility located in upstate New York, about 50 miles northwest of Albany.
