Fresh Coast Leather creates custom, hand-crafted leather goods embodying the beauty of the Great Lakes.

Our founder, Pete Johnson, combines high quality materials with his love of craftsmanship to produce unique pieces that stand the test of time. We are based near the picture book, white sands of Lake Michigan, and this clean atmosphere inspires our spirit of creativity that you will see in each order.

We have been in business since 2019, and look forward to bringing artisan skill in leather works for many years to come.


  1. To honor God
  2. Do what we say we’re going to do
  3. Produce the highest quality products to meet your needs
  4. Source as much of  our equipment and products from the USA and American Manufacturers as we can (this can be a tough one)
This keychain is exactly what I was looking for…simple design and high quality. Thank you!

We came to Fresh Coast Leather Works looking for a unique closing gift for our buyers in the real estate market. Top notch professionalism, creativity and quality product have set a bar that will be hard for others to attain!
