Leather & Linen Co. began in 2020 as a result of Marlise having a dream to have a side hustle, a love to create, and a desire to learn how to make a leather clutch. Marlise is a central IL native who enjoys creating, chai tea lattes, hiking, is an aspiring minimalist and finds conscious fashion important. She has a heart for women who are or have been abused or trafficked. Marlise values living by Biblical principles in word and action.

Colossians 3:17 KJV "And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him."

just a note.

Hello, Hello!

Allow me to inspire you to embark on an adventure whether it's exploring the city, hiking in the mountains, strolling in the park, spending time with friends, or attending church or Bible study to cultivate meaningful relationships. These hands-free bags are thoughtfully designed to liberate you from the inconvenience of a bulky bag when you do go on that adventure. It's my pleasure to empower you to travel light and enjoy your experiences to the fullest!
