John C. and his wife Marion opened their store, Leather Works in 1988 to retail a wide variety of leather goods including museum reproductions and contemporary accessories.
In 2014 Jolene Dauphney, one of John's skilled craftspeople, took over Leather Works.
Leather Works is located on the North-East side of Cape Breton, on the Cabot Trail, halfway between Ingonish and Baddeck. We are 45 minutes North of Baddeck and 45 minutes south of Ingonish and 1 hour West of Sydney.
