Owner and operator, Layla Cann, has combined her love of all things Leather and Vintage with her interest in repurposing and reinventing unique Leather Bags and Accessories. Each piece is a one-off unique bag which uses the original features from the garment such as pockets and other interesting details.
With 10 years experience creating Bespoke Up-cycled Leather Bags, the excitement of each project is just the same as the first, it’s this makers passion!
Citizen Leather offers a Commission Service which allows the owner of a garment the opportunity to specify the style and overall design of their bag. We often receive jackets from passed-on loved-ones to reinvent into special ‘Memory Bags’. Layla particularly enjoys the nature of this part of the service.
Citizen Leather is all about individuality, hence the name of the business, we believe your Bag & associated Stories are and must be treated as individual as the Citizen they represent. Visit us at our retail shop / workshop to discuss the possibilities in creating a piece as unqiue as you!
