Our passion, motivation and inspiration comes from crafting the very best leather goods and bags in the finest Italian & Spanish leather.
The finest leather goods, that last a lifetime, reflecting yours
Mackenzie Leather was founded in the early 70’s with its high-quality leather workshop which soon established a reputation for quality. By 1990, we had opened a shop on Edinburgh’s picturesque Victoria Street. In 2004, the Arran and Edinburgh businesses started to trade independently.
The current owner Simon Harvey-Potts began his trade in Spain nearly 20 years ago, making his own leather goods and selling them at local markets at the tender age of 19. In 2002, he started working as an apprentice in time-honoured fashion, to become a master of the trade.
He is absolutely passionate about creating and hand producing bespoke leather goods and bags that are one of a kind and full of character.
