Hailing from a proud lineage of military tailors, the Ettinger family established itself in London in 1934, where it started a brand new chapter of its history, making good use of its exceptional entrepreneurial spirit and craftsmanship abilities, but this time in leathergoods manufacturing.
A Family Affair
Founded by Gerry Ettinger in 1934, the company is still family owned and run by his elder son, Robert Ettinger. We are one of the few remaining British luxury leather goods companies still manufacturing in the UK and pride ourselves on designing and handcrafting only the finest leather goods.
In 1996, in recognition of the work carried out for the Royal Household, Ettinger of London was appointed with a Royal Warrant to HRH the Prince of Wales.
Here, you can learn some more about the Ettinger family and the company heritage and also about the leathers we use and the extraordinary craftsmanship that has built our reputation over more than 80 years!
