About Us

Our entire manufacturing process is based on our passion to provide an eco-friendly material that out-performs traditional leather, faux leathers and fabrics.

Since E-Leather entered the market in 2007, the company has honoured the vision of our founder Chris Bevan, and his commitment to the development of a clean technology product and culture.

Chris Bevan - Founder

Somebody said that it "couldn't be done..."

But, he with a chuckle replied that "maybe it couldn’t," but he would be one who wouldn’t say so till he’d tried. So he buckled right in with the trace of a grin on his face. If he worried he hid it. He started to sing as he tackled the thing that couldn’t be done, and he did it.

Somebody scoffed: "Oh, you’ll never do that; at least no one has done it"; but he took off his coat and he took off his hat, and the first thing we knew he’d begun it. With a lift of his chin and a bit of a grin, without any doubting or quiddit, he started to sing as he tackled the thing that couldn’t be done, and he did it.

There are thousands to tell you it cannot be done, there are thousands to prophesy failure; there are thousands to point out to you one by one, the dangers that wait to assail you. But just buckle it in with a bit of a grin, just take off your coat and go to it; just start to sing as you tackle the thing that "couldn’t be done," and you’ll do it.
