THE AVERAGE GIVES THE WORLD ITS DURABILITY. THE UNUSUAL ITS VALUE. OSCAR WILDE
DUKES Finest Artisan has manufactured premium hand-made leather accessories and purses since 2008. The pieces impress with their special design, high artisanal quality and inimitability. Original vintage basics and finest, vegetable-tanned leather are extravagantly finished by hand and turned into unique pieces of art with a tangible character.
Ursula Klein and Michael Herzog, the founders of Dukes Finest Artisan, have created and cultivated this philosophy. Their original vintage leather products come from a global network of vintage aficionados, from Los Angeles to Budapest. Rare and precious pieces, selected mainly from old military stocks and vintage markets, are cleaned and treated with natural oils and lotions and, finally, receive their exquisite artisanal and artistic touch.According to traditional craftsmanship, the leather is embossed by hand, studded, decorated with exotic leather and painted by the most sophisticated artists.
Contemporary historical topics, native tribes, ethnic motifs, folklore, pop and street art serve as sources of inspiration for our pieces and are matched with each other in our collections.
