The Townsend Story

At Townsend Leather, we have a passion for leather, luxury, and design. Our design-driven philosophy allows us to offer creative and innovative leathers along with virtually unlimited opportunities for customization. With more than 50 years of experience working with designers in the residential, hospitality, contract, aviation, and transportation markets around the world, we strive to provide top-of-the-line leathers that are as unique as each of our customers.

Our trained professionals are experts at understanding the many nuances of leather. We manage the entire process from start to finish, from your initial consultation to determine the best approach to your project right through dyeing and pattern making, cutting and finishing, to final delivery of your leather.

At Townsend Leather, we are craftsmen and artisans of leather, not just distributors or marketers. For us, this is a life passion and a family-owned business, not just another job. Our company was founded in 1969 by the Kucel family and our leather is produced in our state-of-the-art facility located in upstate New York, about 50 miles northwest of Albany.

For over 50 years, Townsend has been dedicated to producing the highest quality leather in the world, with a focus on making a positive environmental impact, guided by our team mission and collective values, working in partnership with our local community, together.  

The result: superior quality, consistency, and attention to detail you can count on for all Townsend Leather products.

This is what sets Townsend Leather apart, and what can make a significant difference in the outcome of your next design project.
