Long before Bruce Lund became an award winning inventor, prototype builder, small business owner, intellectual property licensee, team leader and manager — he served in an apprenticeship as a leatherworker, operated a leather shop in Chapel Hill, NC, and later in San Antonio and across Texas. For years he made a living as a leather craftsman, and in the decades since, has found it to be an immensely satisfying hobby.
Bruce says he gets a deep satisfaction from creating tangible, useful, and aesthetically pleasing objects from a material as varied and precious as leather. He enjoys the material, the processes, and seeing lovely and useful things come together through the work of his hands. As many of you may already know, his creations each year have been gifts for family and friends, and colleagues in the toy industry and beyond.
With this passion for leather deeply entrenched, Bruce has long wanted to start a leather company. And so.......in his own words, “I decided to quit thinking about it, and just do it! Success or not, matters not. Just doing it, however, does matter.”
