About Chaucer Leather Inc.
Chaucer Leather was established in 1975 on the shores of the Merrimack River in Haverhill, MA. Since the mid-1800’s, Haverhill has been known for leather tanning, shoe making and apparel manufacturing. Known as the “Shoe City,” Haverhill has many classic brick factory buildings that once housed over 100 shoe companies.
Today Chaucer focuses upon making high quality belts and bags. Capabilities include all types of leather and fabric belts. We produce flat bridle jeans styles, feather-edge dress styles and exotic reptile leather hand-pieced to the exact size. Fabrics are custom dyed to match any pattern or logo for custom pattern belts, pet products or bag straps. Tote bags and hand bags are carefully crafted by hand from glove leather, American Bison, Woolrich® wools and 20 oz Cotton Canvas to our customers’ exact specifications.
Our customers include small specialty stores, retail catalogs and wholesale brands. 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.
Chaucer Leather is a unique manufacturer that can produce volume quantities or just one piece. Through our many years working with resources around the world, we can build products that suit a wide range of needs and tastes.
