Big news…






District Leather Supply has officially moved!!!!


The hopes and dreams of DLS started in Bill's basement as a hobby. Making a wallet here, a watch strap there, and belts for everybody. Soon after, it became “what do I need as a maker?” and “what if there are others out there like me?!”


With hopes of helping at least a handful of people pay their bills, many tireless hours of R&D went into what would become the bones of District Leather Supply today. The goal has remained consistent: To make sure whatever DLS puts out is what we would use for ourselves, guaranteeing quality and great value, with NO EXCEPTION.


Over the past four years, others have caught on, and with the support of an incredible community of Makers, District Leather Supply continues to grow…


Today we welcome you to DLS 3.0!


What began in a modest basement, then moved to a decent sized warehouse, has now moved into a new massive warehouse.  


We have completed about 90% of the move, changing the space nearly every day to better suit our needs and the needs of our amazing customers.  Coach has single handedly extended the “Leather Hotel” by 30%!  Cruz continues to map out a more efficient packing and shipping center(not only for our current crew, but also for our future teammates).  Nashon has continued to learn and improve our efficiency.  Unfortunately, Gabe missed the whole thing, but he is back and spooling the crap out of some thread.  Through all of this, one thing is consistent, Benny sitting by the windows emailing live sale invoices. 


While this has everyone here at DLS excited…and a little tired…We could not continue to do this without thanking all of you for your incredible support. None of this was guaranteed a year ago, and to be in the place we are now, we will never take it for granted.


We can’t wait to show you around and show you what we have cooking up for the future.  For now though, thank you, every single one of you. From those of you that have bought a single small spool of Venymo, a few panels of leather, 20 double shoulders or sides, or even sent us coffee or snacks. We couldn’t have done this without you!


During the process, we may have missed a few phone calls, emails, or DMs. Order fulfillment may have taken a bit longer than usual.  So we want to thank you again for your patience and understanding. We are nearly back to status quo, but please reach out if you need anything or have any questions.


From your friends at DLS,


Thank you.
