Werther Leather Goods

Norfolk, VA

The Shop

Located within the Selden Market in downtown Norfolk between the Slover Library and The Main hotel.


Stitching That Lasts

Stitching by hand is time-consuming, but for leather goods that will become heirlooms, it's worth the extra time.

Highest Quality Leather

Full-Grain Leather

The strongest part of the leather is just below the hair on the cow. This part of the leather also has the most character.

Waskerd is now WERTHER

Why the New Name?

Werther Arcelli immigrated to America to build a better life with his own two hands—fighting professionally as a boxer and becoming the welter weight champion of New England in 1934. Naming the shop after my great grandfather is a small way I can honor my family heritage as I strive to make a living with my own two hands in a slightly different way.

"I wanted something made by a real person in the US who cares about their craft. I wanted something slim enough to discourage carrying more than necessary, but not so slim that I would have to change my habits in order to use it."
