Founded in 2017 by Lenise Williams, Made Leather Co. offers quality leather goods handcrafted by artisans in Morocco. While in Marrakech to speak at a United Nations conference, the former lawyer fell in love with the city’s handcrafted leather goods, and on the flight back home, she jotted down a rough business plan on a cocktail napkin. Seven months later, a business came to life with a mission to support Moroccan artisans. As a single mom it was also her mission to teach her two children about the retail industry and entrepreneurship. Today, the company continues to grow, which has allowed Lenise to leave corporate America as a lawyer, while supporting these talented artisans who make leather goods.
