Chaucer Leather is a unique manufacturer that can produce volume quantities or just a few pieces. Through our many years working with resources around the world, we can build products that suit a wide range of needs and tastes. Please call us with your needs and speak to either Bill Larsen or Thomas Bates about your production needs.
Typically, our customers come to us because they are a start up, have had problems with their current sources or have out-grown their sources. We are a production factory and usually work in quantities of 100-3000 pcs per order/style. Deliveries average 3-6 weeks. We generally do not run proto-types and suggest all designs are proto-typed by a qualified designer before coming to us for final samples and commencing production.
Our customers include specialty stores, retail catalogs, wholesale brands, and OEM contracts. Each day we produce products that are shipped to all parts of North America and sometimes to Asia and Europe. We custom package each product with attention to details of customer specific packaging and shipping directions. We are EDI compliant and can ship with all major carriers.
