How it Began

In 1917, Max Korchmar launched The Leather Specialty Company, which would later become Korchmar. He had a vision to create world-class leather. As a family owned and operated business, Korchmar's passion, attitude, and ethics are woven together with proficiency, efficiency, and quality.

The Art of Korchmar

The quality of Korchmar products reflects its roots as a family-owned business; deep investment in quality and care, and meant to be passed down.

Like HELM, Korchmar takes leather, a byproduct of the meat industry, that would otherwise be thrown into a landfill, and develops functional art.

Production of Korchmar leather is engineered in a way that is so efficient it can be taken to market at prices that are affordable.

The Next Generation

Siblings Mike and Amy are the fourth and youngest generation of Korchmar who are leading the family business into its next era.

"I consider the passing of the art to be a great responsibility," said the elder Michael Korchmar. "Korchmar is very fortunate to have two family members to see the family heritage continued and willing to receive the art being passed."

The younger Mike agrees. "We craft leather for life and I am proud and honored to do so with an approach that honors the integrity and respect of my family."
