Langston Hughes, lived in Washington D.C. at the 12th Street YMCA during the 1920's at the height of DC's burgeoning literary scene. As one of the founders of the cultural movement known as the Harlem Renaissance, Hughes used the innovation of jazz rhythm and black dialect to depict the life of urban blacks in his powerful writing.

Solomon Chancellor leather is never corrected to remove any marks; we begin by using the most naturally beautiful hides available. While we utilize a series of different leather types based on the product specifications, the majority of our goods are made from Vegetable tanned American hides. With its smooth grain, rich color and lightweight feel, our American sourced leather creates sturdy but elegant pieces. To create a beautiful interior, each piece is lined with beautiful suede. As no two hides are completely alike, every handcrafted Solomon Chancellor product will have individual characteristics that enrich its patina and add to its uniqueness as it ages.
At Solomon Chancellor, we believe that uniqueness and simplicity are the key elements to elegance. We exemplify this with our signature purple Solomon Chancellor zipper. Made by unrivaled Swiss maker RiRi, our double zippers teeth are machined smooth and polished for years of perfect continuous use. Accompanying each zipper, specialized strap extenders streamline and enhance the brilliance of each piece. Our solid-brass chromed hardware, offers strength, durability, and reliability to last for generations as your leather ages.
