About Us


Designer/craftsman, Michael Rowland, fashions his creations in the beautiful village of Merrickville, where he can usually be found in his store Rowland Leather.

 “Leather inspires me. It always has. From the first time I tinkered with it as a youth it pushed me to make something from it. Now when I see and touch a hide I know exactly what I want to use it for. I can picture the bag completed in my mind's eye. I can visualize the process from start to finish. It's what I do. It's an extension of who I am. My mission is to make leather goods of excellence.”


 Michael Rowland, bag maker extraordinaire, celebrates over 40 years of dedicated creativity. He is devoted to making leather goods of exquisite style and enduring quality. His award-winning designs attest to his passion for excellence. Leather linings and bound edges are distinguishing traits of his superb leather creations.

 As well as Michaels bags and backpacks the store offers a selection of well made leather belts, sheepskin slippers, wallets, gloves and travel bags.
