St. James Leather Gifts or by its more familiar name of StJ, is a Northamptonshire (UK) based brand continuing the areas rich history in high quality luxury leather goods. Leather and footwear craftsmanship can trace its roots in Northamptonshire, going back to Cromwell times (17th century) and the English Civil War. In the 18th century Northamptonshire became a major centre of footwear and leather manufacture. The prosperity of the county was greatly aided by demand for footwear, caused by the Napoleonic Wars of the late 18th and early 19th centuries. Through the centuries this knowledge of selecting and using the highest quality leathers along with the best craftsmanship has been recognised worldwide.
Using this knowledge, skills and craftsmanship StJ have produce a range of luxury leather gifts for both men and women. Every carefully crafted product is meticulously inspected before being carefully wrapped in a protective micro fibre cloth then elegantly presented in a matching coloured box with lid.
StJ’s stunning range of everlasting gifts which include an A4 leather portfolios, Personal Organisers, leather wallets for men and ladies purses, business card cases and quality leather key fobs will be cherished gifts for life. They will become old favourites for whomever receives them, all of our products actually improve with age, as the premium quality of our leather will further soften with use and wear.
The StJ range contains large leather gifts and small leather gifts so you can create your own gift set of matching leather wallet and key fob, or leather personal organiser and leather folder and many more options. The consistency in quality through production means you can purchase a different product from the range every year knowing it will be of equally high quality as the previous.
The StJ principles are founded upon contemporary elegant designs, combining style with practicality. The emphasis is placed on the quality of the leather and the craftsmanship of the product. The StJ brand is a mark of reassuring quality, and our goods are built to last. Our product branding is subtle, deliberately so, as we see ourselves geared towards discerning buyers of affordable quality and set ourselves against the bling culture of flashy brands, of disputable quality sold at excessive prices. As a company we pride ourselves on our prices reflecting the premium grades of leather used rather than supporting the profits of highly branded high st designer names.
StJ products character changes daily through your handling of them thus reflecting your very own character. Be you a man that carries your wallet carefully within the breast pocket of your jacket or the man that jams it in to the back pocket of his jeans, or the woman that accessorizes her pristine black business suit with a elegant black A6 personal organiser or one that dives regularly into the depths of her large, essentials carrying, hand bag, to locate her leather loop key fob. This leather lovingly reflects the person you are.
