Whether it’s a motorcycle jacket or the face of a Texas serial killer, leather makes everything more badass.
And now that includes bicycle seats.
Introducing LEH SPLY & MFG, taking orders for their custom cowhide bicycle saddles right now.
Helmed by Carson Leh — born from a lineage that includes Pennsylvanian cobblers and Eames designers — LEH designs its rump rests with all the care of handcrafted leather shoes.
As an avid BMX biker, Leh makes quality BMX seats, too, including this all-suede SL seat with the kind of clean punch-work you’d find on a Johnston and Murphy longwing brogue.
When Carson isn’t stitching seats he’s doing research and design for David Hertz, the Venice-based sustainable architect. Soon he’ll transfer this skill to LEH by adding furniture and custom lighting to the menu.
Depending on the complexity, Carson’s saddles take between a week and a month to make, but buyers can watch their saddle come to life on Instagram, where Leh posts updates.
So you’ll know when he’s behind.
