Our Heritage

At Tundra Leather we are committed to serving you with over 45 years of hands-on leather working experience.

Peter Grove started doing leatherwork at the age of 9, at a summer skills camp.  He worked on and off doing leatherwork for Tandy Leather and in 1982, Tundra Manufacturing Incorporated began as a part-time job for Peter.

Later, in 1991, he changed his focus from straight manufacturing and moved more toward retail, when he took over an existing Tandy Leather store and change the name to Tundra Leather. A couple of years later he hired Sean, and they began making one-off custom leatherwork projects, while still selling all of the leather, tools, and supplies to local leatherworkers.

In 2015, Peter’s daughter Kristi took over the running of the business, and in 2016, celebrated Tundra’s 25th Anniversary on King Street in Hamilton, as part of the International Village BIA.
