At John Candor our goal is to deliver products that are stylish, functional, comfortable (ergonomic) and durable. We design our own products with a timeless, classy, professional and minimalistic look to them. For years we had ideas for other brands, then we decided to start our own. We believe they sacrifice functionality for style and often cut corners on raw material selection. I have wondered if these designers ever used their own products. With the collective ideas from our own experience and feedback from others we started designing new products and sourcing our own raw materials. We control the process from design to selecting raw materials, artisans and delivery to you.
Partnering with other Artisans
When artisans want to focus on only handcrafting products, we'll use our branding to bring them more wholesale orders.
Using Recyclable & Eco-Friendly Materials
This beautiful earth God created is not our own and we're responsible with making sure it stays this way for future generations. We pay higher costs for better raw materials and only source within the America's.
Team with the Best Certified Artisans
We are excited and humbled by the responsibility of owning our own business and having the opportunity to only team with those that share our passion for ethical business practices and responsible employment. This means providing a living wage and benefits, and following Colombia’s strict environmental laws. We are continually audited by third party auditors to ensure legal compliance with these requirements.
Helping the Local People
We source all of our raw materials from within the US or Colombia and partner with small family businesses that provide a living wage and benefits.
We love the opportunities we enjoy here in the US and want to do what we can to help the local community in Colombia and other artisans in the US.
Clean water is a daily essential for everyone.
Our certified leather tanners assist local communities with treating and purifying their waste water.
How are they able to do this? With over one million+ USD invested in their water plant, they incorporate on-site water treatment that recycles, purifies all waste, used and unused water and return it to it's original source in an even cleaner state.
The Finished Product
Fine artisan leather goods that look great, smell great and pass the test of time. By controlling the process from sourcing raw materials from those that are good stewards of this earth, insisting on ethical business practices, being socially responsible even when it impacts the bottom line and not compromising we’re able to deliver a finished product that we’re proud to stand behind. Leather goods you'll be proud to buy and wear!
