Urban Article is a one woman shop, founded by Ida Sorenson, in 2018, with the vision of making beautiful, useful leather items for home and self. We are particular about the leather we use, and where it comes from, because we want a stunning and durable product that is also ethically made; free of toxins like Chromium or the use of child labor. Every one of our items is made by us, in Portland, Oregon, from full-grain, vegetable tanned, American leather, and/or upcycled materials. We cut pieces carefully, to highlight the beauty of the leather, and avoid, or minimize any flaws in the natural material. Seams are finished by hand, with threads tied off and grommets are reinforced for the longest lasting product possible. We hope you find something you love in our collection, and thank you for your support!
