In 1975, a small custom leather shop was founded in downtown Athens, Georgia with the heritage motto, "crafted by hand...and heart". For over four decades, the owner and craftsman, Irvin Alhadeff, has doggedly maintained a philosophy that only the finest leather and leather products will make it into his workshop and store. Now, thousands of customers later, Masada has built a statewide reputation for handmade bridal-leather belts, wallets, cuffs and clutches, and Italian leather bags and briefcases. It's been a recipe for success, longevity, and most of all, enjoyment and creativity. So, while you're in town, please visit Irvin at Masada Leather.
