Danielpaul brings the exotic adventure of Africa to your doorstep

Danielpaul brings the exotic adventure of Africa to your doorstep. You can feel the wild, untamed spirit in his beautiful handcrafted designs. For over 20 years Danielpaul lived, breathed, and practiced this craft.

Like Africa, his creations have been through struggles and duress, but its true beauty lies within its rugged strength. Every item has a unique imperfection and that tells the story of its endurance and ability to overcome challenges – transforming it into perfection.

From climbing steep cliffs on the African Wild Coast, to elephant-back Safari’s, not even a scorpion and spider bite could quench his thirst for adventure. The spirit of Africa lives forever through his creations. Own it, feel it, live the life you dream of.

Daniel started out as an apprentice working for an internationally acclaimed Safari Outfitter in South Africa. After five years of rigorous training, he was advanced to Head of the Leather Department. His role was to design and manufacture high quality leather products and to ensure that every item was produced to the highest standard. In 2008, Daniel left the company to start his own range – Daniel Paul Leather Crafts.

At this point, his former employer offered Daniel sole production of the company’s veg tan product line. For ten years Daniel perfected his art and became well known for quality bespoke leather items.

He was chosen to represent the Eastern Cape and South Africa, with a handful of fellow designers at the well renowned, Ethiopian World Exhibition and Fashion Show in 2018. While many craftsmen prefer to work in isolation, Daniel’s passion led him to train numerous people over the years – instilling his strict work ethics and sharp eye for detail.

In 2020 Daniel moved his family to Edinburgh to bring the African spirit to his ancestor’s home – Scotland, fulfilling his calling of making long lasting, beautiful and bespoke handcrafted leather products for all to be enjoyed. His passion for his craft is evident in his workmanship.

Always quality before quantity, “It is never about the price. Leather has an affinity to nature, it either calls you or repels you. It is my honour to produce a product that will last you for many years to come.”

Danielpaul – Live the adventurous life.
