Cactus Leather was founded in London, UK in 1996 by Brahim Haddou. As a young student in Morocco, Brahim developed an interest in handmade leather shoes and what started as a hobby soon became his passion and later on his profession. For more than 20 years Brahim and his team of artisans have worked very hard at developing a business that specialises in combining the best of the Moroccan leather tradition with the influence of the British culture.
We are a proud supporter of Moroccan artisan work and we have worked with small artistic producers for many years. We strongly believe in fair trade and are very proud to have the opportunity to bring the work of these unknown masters to a wider audience. It is deeply rewarding to work closely with our friends, designing and creating products which allow these old traditional leather-craft techniques to survive and blossom forth into the future.
Besides importing high-quality Moroccan leather goods, Cactus Leather is also a manufacturer of its own product range. We design and produce a wide range of handmade leather accessories such as bags, wristbands, belts, wallets and custom items. We are passionate about artisan work and individually created pieces using the best leather and made to last a life time. We aim to mix both modern and vintage styles to craft unique designs with a very special Moroccan influence and suited for the everyday modern lifestyle, all at unbeatable prices.
We have an extensive experience in creating customised designs that suit our customer’s own taste and personality. We are happy to create personalised items for both individual customers and wholesale orders.
Cactus Leather is now a well established leather specialist that owns 4 shops in Camden Town, London and a workshop in East London. You are welcomed to visit our stores in Camden Town Stables Market, Mezz 2, to view our full range of designs.
