J. Wood Leathers Embarks on a New Journey

Discover the exciting developments underway at J. Wood Leathers. With new ownership and a refreshed look, we remain steadfast in our commitment to delivering the finest quality leathers and hides to every customer; from novice leatherworkers to established, high-street brands.

J. Wood Leathers, a well-established presence in the industry, is forging a new chapter led by Jack Wood, who brings 15 years of experience to his new role following a buy-out of the company. We’re thrilled about this transition and its promising prospects for our valuable customers and the future of J. Wood Leathers.

“I feel honoured to take over the family business, which my parents have both spent most of their lives working so hard to build. I can feel the pressure of responsibility, but I relish the challenge, I’m passionate about this industry and I’m very excited by what lies ahead. I have lots of ideas of where I want J. Wood Leathers to go next,” says Jack.

This transition marks more than just a change in ownership; it signifies a reimagining of our brand, as we aim to attract new customers and adapt to meet the demands of the modern marketplace. While our appearance may have changed, our dedication to our mission, heritage and core values remains steadfast. We’re committed to offering top-quality, sustainably sourced leathers and hides at competitive prices, all while delivering unparalleled customer service. This evolution is about adapting to the digital marketplace while preserving our established identity as a family-run business.

Looking ahead, we have exciting plans to expand our product range: introducing new colours and ranges to cater to a broader spectrum of leatherworking applications. We’re planning to incorporate hardware, tools, and threads into our offering, with the ultimate goal of becoming a one-stop shop for all things leathercraft.

We are striving to create a more personal experience where our customers can feel comfortable seeking advice and guidance from our team, which may be small but is mighty, and filled with passionate and knowledgeable individuals who are dedicated to our craft.

Our renewed focus on “Made in Britain” and our support for the leatherworking community underscores our commitment to sustainability and craftsmanship- we’re advocates of the “don’t just buy it, make it” ethos, encouraging enthusiasts of every skill level to explore the art of leatherworking.

Here’s to a future filled with creativity, community, and craftsmanship at J. Wood Leathers.
