Sharing Our Backstory
Officially established in April of 2018 out of Los Angeles, Southern California, our actual creative journey embarked much sooner than that. As a lifelong artist himself , Founder and Entrepreneur Christopher J. M. born in New York of Italian American heritage grew up in a household of overflowing amazing creativity and talent.
A professional woodworker and designer by trade for over 20 years he set out to explore new avenues of creativity when signing up for a leathercraft class during a very difficult time of his life while suffering immense loss and hardship. As a true testament, what was intended to be a therapeutic educational experience turned out to be a discovery nothing short of amazing with this new artistic outlet which is absolutely and truly enjoyable especially making products that are meaningful.
Leather is such a beautiful canvas with countless possibilities. And with that , after countless hours practicing, designing ,perfecting the craft and what started out as making and selling custom wallets for friends and intrigued word-of-mouth clientele up till this very day, the epic vision for the Christoph Joseph Brand was birthed in 2015 .
