Hi!  I'm Arleen, principal designer and owner.  I love to create things with leather.  Leather is natural.  By working with leather I feel that I give homage to the animals that provide us with warmth, comfort, and nourishment.  Waste not.  Want not.  Feel free to shop my store.  If there is anything that I can do or create for you that is not in my store, please send me a note and we can discuss it.


Design House of AJH Leather Designs

We design for stylish people.


AJH Leather Designs is a design house. Arleen J. Harkness is the principal designer and owner. Here we make beautiful bespoke (custom) designs by commission or made-to-order. We design all types of handbags, wallets, backpacks, rucksacks, portfolios, belts, and other products in leather, vegan leather, cork or canvas. Our goal is to make sustainable products and use materials that would either go to waste or can be recycled and made into items for long life. Our mission is to design the best items we can out of the best materials we can find, and to serve each person to the best of our abilities. Follow us on Instragram @womanvs.leather, and Facebook @ajhleather. Shop our online stores: AJH Leather Designs on Amazon Handmade, WomanvsLeatherUS on Etsy,  womanvsleatherus on Ebay, and WomanvsLeather on Faire. 


Thank you for shopping with us!
