Mackenzie Leather was founded in the early 70’s with its high-quality leather workshop which soon established a reputation for quality. By 1990, we had opened a shop on Edinburgh’s picturesque Victoria Street. In 2004, the Arran and Edinburgh businesses started to trade independently.
The current owner Simon Harvey-Potts began his trade in Spain nearly 20 years ago, making his own leather goods and selling them at local markets at the tender age of 19. In 2002, he started working as an apprentice in time-honoured fashion, to become a master of the trade. He is absolutely passionate about creating and hand producing bespoke leather goods and bags that are one of a kind and full of character.
Served his apprenticeship at Mackenzie back in 2001.
After working with the company for several years, he left to further his music career and is now a well respected festival performer.
In 2017 he rejoins the team to pick up where he left off.
Ed is originally from Brighton and has a background in vintage clothing and making. After working for four years as a cutter for a prestigious leather jacket manufacture in the Scottish Borders, Ed joined Mackenzie in April 2017.
Our passion, motivation and inspiration comes from crafting the very best leather goods and bags in the finest Italian & Spanish leather.
