Erin Templeton

Best Leather Bags & Fashion Accessories Company 2020

Erin Templeton was raised in the mountains outside of Vancouver, Canada. She began making leather

accessories in 1999, while studying shoemaking at Cordwainer's College in London, England. By 2007, her

studio graduated from renting the boiler room of a local tailor shop to the actual tailor shop, where she

opened her studio/storefront in Vancouver's historic Chinatown.

All designs are lovingly handmade in-house in recycled leather, imported cowhides, or locally tanned elks

and bison. Erin’s fascination with the past informs designs that aim to defy trends, using minimal hardware

and simple, strong construction to allow people to make pieces their own.
