About the Makers


Benson Thermidore is the young genius behind the Leather Makers, he approached 2nd Story Goods Haiti 10 years ago with his ideas for a leather work group, and with their support has used his skills to build a workshop employing over 20 people in Haiti, now earning a living wage, and changing their story. 

The leather is left by the food industry, and is tanned using a vegetable tanning process in Haiti and in an environmentally friendly tannery in Santiago over the border in the Dominican Republic.
