Thank you for visiting Chester Mox!
We are a small company established since 2009 in Monterey Park, California that specialize in fine handmade leather goods. Each of our products are carefully handcrafted by highly skillful artisans.
We have extensive experience working with exotic skins, specifically, Alligator. We source our hides from the renown Heng Long tannery in Singapore. They are one of the finest exotic tanners in the world. We can handcraft any article available on our website from these beautiful hides, or, we can bring your own design to life as well!
We work with some local tanneries, such as Horween, and we also import our leather from France and Italy. Our stock includes: French Barenia®, French Boxed Calf, French Rusticalf, Shrunken Calf, Italian Vegetable Tanned leather, ILCEA Museum Calf, Shell Cordovan, Chromexcel, Latigo, and Horse Front Chromexcel. Whether you like supple, soft, semi-firm, or firm leather, we have it all!
Each of our products are hand pricked using Blanchard iron prickers and hand sewn together using traditional yet very strong technique known as saddle stitching. Saddle stitching involves the use of two needles and an awl. As the awl puncture through the hole created by the holes previously pricked, the needles are passed through and pulled tautly. There is a knot made by each pass-and-pull so that even if one thread comes apart, the rest of the stitching won't unravel.
Our offerings include classic wallets, briefcases and accessories. However, we also specialized in custom work. If you have a bespoke project in mind, we are here to help! Please feel free to contact us at anytime, we are here for you!
