American culture and style are dynamic and indefinable. A day in our lives consists of work, school, family, friendship, fitness, travel…and while outfits change accordingly and attitudes shift, a handbag is the steady anchor to every wardrobe and every day. It must possess grace under pressure, inimitable style and the keys to our lives and all essentials. It must endure.
It is with this persevering spirit that Peter Dooney, the founder of Dooney & Bourke, launched a creative passion project in in his hometown of Greenwich, Connecticut – Henry’s Leather Company. Handcrafted in the heart of Connecticut and in Florence, Italy with the old-world, artisanal secrets of Europe, Henry’s styles are designed with a timeless luxury, intended to prevail through life, time and future generations. Softened, understated silhouettes are constructed with luxurious French leathers, Italian twill straps and jewelry-grade, Italian palladium hardware for an unmistakable American sensibility.
At a time when other companies are using cheaper materials and shortcuts in manufacturing, we’re doubling down on American manufacturing elevated by the finest European materials. Our team spends countless days a year traveling America and Europe discovering new leathers and hardware.
Above and beyond each Henry’s style, lies a community of craftspeople and families who strive to evolve our founder’s dream of building the next great American heritage brand. With over 80 craftsmen in Connecticut and Italy, we’re committed to craftsmanship and preserving the legacy of leatherworking. Within this community, the dreams, aspirations and creations of generations yet to come are being brought to life with a refreshed American spirit.
