Urban Article was started in 2018, by Ida Sorenson, after she discovered a love of leatherworking while remaking an old purse of her grandmother's. Ida's skills and interests, which had previously been focused on printmaking, metalsmithing, and sewing, found a perfect match in working with leather, which allowed the creation of items that are both beautiful and useful.

Urban Article is a one woman shop. We use the best, most ethically produced leathers available, and take extra steps to create items of quality. Seams are finished by hand, with threads tied off, for the longest lasting product possible. We carefully select and cut each piece, to highlight the beauty of the leather, and avoid, or minimize any flaws in the natural material. We hope you find something you love, and thank you for your support!
