Baris, the creative force behind Leather Republic was born in Istanbul and moved to London to study economics.
After university he started a business importing leather jackets from his family’s factory, selling high-quality leather jackets from his stall in Spitalfields market. Being his own boss gives Baris the time to focus on his lifelong dream of learning to fly.
Leather Republic’s bespoke service is not just about leather jackets, but a way of life and a celebration of the traditional craft of handmade leather goods.
When you commission a bespoke jacket from Leather Republic, you can be sure of its exceptional quality and personalised fit.
A custom-designed jacket is an opportunity for you to express your personality and sense of style.
