From event manager to leather craftsman, Carlos Yeung found his true calling at 29, the owner of Leatherlands, his journey all started with finding the perfect gift for his best friend. He went to big departments stores and small designer stores, but all he saw were overall the same things. He wanted something more personal, something which makes his friend feel unique and special, and think of him from time to time. Eventually he passed by a leathercraft store and saw some leather pieces and thought why not make something himself.
Hours he spent with cutting and stitching leather together, eventually it looks a lot more like a decent present to give to his friend. These process brought him so much joy and laughter.
After his best friend had received the gift, he loves it so much that not only telling him how happy he was but also showing his appreciation to other friends as well, and you know friends got jealous so easily. Therefore, he crafted even more presents later for his friends and family ...
After a while, he decided to proceed his leather craft skills onto a professional level, he joined courses in Hong Kong, where he is originally from, and started to make more and more products.
With his passion for leathercraft and making presents a more personal feel he started with Leatherlands.nl in 2015. The name is an ironic reference to the Netherlands, place where he started his company. A company for leathercraft knowledge sharing, personalised leather products, tools, leathers and workshops to everyone who are interested, from beginners to advanced level.
