Leather Miracles began as a tongue-in-cheek working title for a revolutionary start-up, created by David Mathison and Tim Scopes. These two experienced leather executives were about to do something no one had done before — and they joked that it might require divine intervention to be successful. The new idea was to arrange joint ventures with tanneries and finishing plants all over the world, instead of building one centralized facility. Too busy selling their beautiful globally-sourced leathers to think of a new name, Mathison and Scopes stuck with Leather Miracles. The company has been an industry leader ever since, with its slightly curious, but memorable, name.
