Leather Medic®’s founder, Chade Life, is part surgeon, part artist and part magician. Although reluctant to say it himself, he is probably the finest and most skilled practitioner in the country.
Chade spent over twenty-one years refining his craft. He recognized that there would be a significant and ongoing demand for expert craftsmen who mastered the art of repairing and refinishing fine leathers.
He was surprised to learn at the time that there were only three individuals (now retired) in North America with real expertise in this area. He studied with each of them and worked hard through the years to develop his leather expertise. Over time, he developed a process and method that raised the art of leather repair to a new level.
