A long-term investment in quality
It's easy to head to a chain department store or shop online at a big brand for leather items. It's quick, it's easy, and it’s good enough, right?
But to find genuine, top quality leather goods isn't as simple. And in the long term, "just good enough" really isn’t.
When you pick the right luxury leather goods brand, you’ll be saving yourself both time and money in the long run. Also, as is the case with Parker Clay products, you could be doing some good in the world.
By purchasing a high quality, luxury leather item, you’re purchasing a standard of excellence that carries the following values:
- Superior craftsmanship. Luxury leather accessories are designed by the best craftsmen and designers. This means that a luxury leather item will last far longer than a cheap item bought at a chain outlet or online
- Superior materials. For example, the best grade of leather is fine grain leather, which improves in appearance with age. A hand made leather briefcase, for example, will last years longer than a cheaper briefcase that is made with cloth, glue and plastic
- Style vs Fashion. Lots of cheaper “faux” leather items are made to resemble higher quality gear, but luxury style is based on timeless principles of beautiful design that will always look good. A cheap cloth wallet will follow the current trends and look silly 10 years from now - if it lasts that long! A handmade leather wallet, on the other hand, will most likely have a simpler design that is cleaner and will always look great.
- Taste. Folks will know. Carrying a well made piece of luxury leather will indicate to everyone your appreciation for quality, design, and long term value – while looking great.
What makes Parker Clay different?
This is why we believe Parker Clay is the leading luxury leather goods manufacturer:
Timeless design, timeless value
Our artisans in Addis Ababa work with designers in Santa Barbara to combine ancient hand craft techniques with handsome, bold modern design. Any of our items could easily be carried by a model on a Milan runway, but we place great emphasis on creating beautiful goods with exceptional, practical function. A great piece of luxury leather should be something you can carry and use every day, yet still look sharp and amazing. When you buy a Parker Clay item, you can be assured it will look great for years to come.
Top Quality LEATHER SOURCING
We ethically source our leather from local partners in Ethiopia. Ethiopian leather is in huge demand by top tier luxury goods manufacturers. For centuries, Ethiopian leather and tanning techniques have been in demand for the creation of the top luxury leather goods. We only use the absolute finest leathers to ensure all our products have the highest quality.
