Inspiration behind the name

The name “The Leather Mallet” came about when we decided to name the company after a tool we use a lot for our handcrafting work – a mallet made of raw hide (leather) which we find it especially handy when we need to knock things into shape or when we need a paper weight to hold things down.

We decided to go for an old-school font inspired by vintage wine bottles and for the most part because we are just nostalgic that way – we are still using analogue film and we prefer to see things printed.

More importantly, we wanted the company to represent the things that are very dear to us. We like to give old things a new lease of life, perhaps appreciate them in a very different way.
