The Story Behind the Product

Benson has a leather studio in Jubilee village, Haiti, where he trains his fellow community artisans on the art of leather work. In this impoverished village, where work is often undependable and low paying, Benson's studio is a grace to the community.

Through his partnership with 2nd Story Goods, a local non-profit in Gonaives, Benson employs several people to make these bagsas well as journals, belts and the other leather pieces you find in our store.
