HANDCRAFTED IN THE USA
Our products are designed and crafted in our New Orleans studio. Since all of our products are crafted by hand, no two are exactly alike. Each piece is truly unique and infused with love. We always strive for the best craftsmanship and use only the highest quality materials. Our goal is to make your experience special and exceed all your expectations of quality.
All our leather and hardware are 100% sourced within the U.S. Our quality Premium Full Grain Leather is aniline dyed and it has a deep, rich patina (color). Because aniline dyes are absorbed differently across the hide, the color takes on "depth" as slight variations in tones creating a stunning vintage look. Please note that some subtle natural markings such as brands, healed scratches and scars can be present and are considered the signature of fine leather.
Jean’s interest in men’s accessories all started with a bow for her hair. One day, she decided to try making a leather hair bow for herself. This turned into a women’s pinned bow tie, which then became a men’s bow tie.
She started selling bow ties online and at local festivals under the name NOLA Leather after the city that inspired her. What started out as a hobby in her free time developed into a passion. She decided to dedicate all of her energy to the line, and a year later our products were selling not only in New Orleans, but across the country.
As part of our evolution, we have rebranded as Jean Lorent. We have expanded from bow ties to other men’s accessories, and are proud to produce luxury leather goods that inspire everyday life and are handmade from materials sourced wholly in the USA.
