Timeless craftsmanship and unparalleled elegance are at the heart and soul of The Tannery Row, Chicago’s premiere artisan leather company. As the newest member of the RNDD community, we are excited to welcome them to our group of amazing creatives.

25 Years of Expertise in High Quality Leather

Founded in 2011 by John Culliton, The Tannery Row’s mission is to break down barriers within the leather community, making high-quality leather and leather products accessible to a diverse community of artisans and small businesses where before they were only accessible to large companies.

The company name pays homage to Chicago’s historic Tannery District, which thrived in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Today, Horween Leather Company stands as the sole surviving tannery from that era, once one of over a dozen. The Tannery Row is its exclusive retail partner in the United States.

With over 25 years of expertise, The Tannery Row team excels in recommending the perfect leather for any project – be it footwear, garments, or hand-crafted leather accessories. They understand that detail, quality, and consistency are essential when it comes to leather.

Tradition and Heritage

Their dedication to understanding the intricacies of Horween leather, in particular, has allowed them to become specialists in this revered type of leather.

To honor the legacy and make leather goods more accessible, The Tannery Row fosters strong connections with top tanneries in the U.S. and Europe, ensuring a consistent supply of premium leather for all creative pursuits.

At its core, leather symbolizes tradition and heritage, and The Tannery Row embraces this ethos wholeheartedly. Customers can shop their selection of leather goods both on their website and at their Chicago showroom.
