Chic Sparrow was born on Jennifer Harvey’s kitchen table in 2014. Soon the kitchen was taken over by leather, tools and dye, and then business moved to the garage. Only 5 weeks later, she leased commercial space and her husband, Mark, quit his corporate job so they could build Chic Sparrow together.
Today, we’ve come a long way from that kitchen table covered in leather and string. Chic Sparrow is now the largest manufacturer of handmade leather notebooks in North America. Chic Sparrow has grown to include hand-crafted leather goods, handbags, and paper inserts, plus an online community of travelers notebook devotees. We’re proud to create flexible and well-paying careers for working parents, students and the hearing impaired.
Responsible stewardship and quality are our core values, so we use only full grain leather from cows that were used for food.
