Crazy Canadian Leather was first established in Tokyo, Japan in 2000. It was started as a hobby and interested in leather craft. After a year or so learning the basics from some close friends and makers, I started selling my goods in a flea market in Inokashira Park.
Eventually, I started to make a name for myself as the “Crazy Canadian” and portrait artist and friend, Mr Takahashi created a logo for me.
Soon, I started making contacts with local shop owners around Kichijoji, Shibuya, Ueno and Shimokitazawa and they started carrying my leather goods in their stores.
In 2008, I moved back to Toronto, Canada with my family, and re-launched my business here. We’ve had some ups and downs getting re-settled, but things are looking better including our new and improved logo…
In 2015, My Brother Jamie joined as a partner and our father Will also helps us out with product ideas, research and buying making Crazy Canadian truly a family business.
Starting in 2016 we began to change our primary market focus from Western and Native inspired to a new direction…Cosplay Costume Design and replicas. As we move into 2017, we will be attending more Fan Conventions like Toronto ComiCon, FanExpo Toronto and any others we can get to so we can help Cosplayers out there create new pieces for their unique costumes.
