Designer Leathers - our history
Designer Leathers has a beautiful history - well we think so anyway! We are a family-run business in the heart of the city of Peterborough, just a minute’s walk from the beautiful Norman Cathedral.
Designer Leathers have been suppliers of quality leather and sheepskin jackets since 1987, and since then the business has expanded to include handbags and accessories - we are particularly proud of our status as a Radley handbag ‘select store’.
Our boutique high street leather store was founded in 1987 by Ivor and Pat Lewis - or Mum and Dad to us! They were soon joined by myself (Joel) and today I run the business with my wife Aimee.
At Designer Leathers, we value high standards of customer service, as our customers have been very loyal to us over the decades and have taught us that the ‘boutique experience’ of friendly customer service combined with a good eye for what looks great has ensured they enjoy their shopping experience with us and recommend us to their friends, family and work colleagues. Designer Leathers always strive to offer the very best quality leather imported from Italy and other established sources, and you’ll always find we offer competitive prices - especially within our online store.
Many of our Designer Leathers suppliers have been with us from the beginning, producing leather garments with impeccable attention to detail that brings customers back time and again.
So, whether you are looking for the latest fashion trend or something more functional, our extensive leather jacket and leather bag collection over two floors has much to offer.
Take a look at the full Designer Leathers range here before you call in, or if you're not local you can shop from the comfort of your own home and be assured of the same high level of personal service.
If you have any questions you can contact us, in the meantime - happy online shopping!
