Established in 1983 by husband and wife team, Laurence and Rahleen Bloch, Leatherock(r)’s origin can be traced back to the early 70s when Laurence started making handcrafted leather accessories, hats, and sandals while a student at the University of Cape Town.
Today, Leatherock produces exquisite leather belts, bags, bracelets, jewelry and accessories for customers around the world. Their accessories are designed and produced in beautiful San Diego, California and are proudly made in the USA.
Their in-house designer works closely with owner, Rahleen, to create every original and unique piece. “We love to travel the world, immersing ourselves in different cultures and gaining insight into the art they produce. We search for interesting leathers, metals, wood, stones and other unusual embellishments to use in our designs. This is what truly inspires our collections.”
Using only the finest leathers, the company adorns accessories with semi-precious stones, unique beads, and Swarovski Crystals. They’ve never had a collection without African Turquoise, Rahleen’s favorite stone. The Leatherock leather working team in small but loyal, using their extensive experience and attention to detail to ensure that each item is made to the highest quality.
