Doors Open Milwaukee – Mitchell Leather Factory

Doors Open Milwaukee – Mitchell Leather Factory

Doors Open Milwaukee

“Sturdily constructed in 1915 as part of a tannery, today Mitchell Leather is the sole downtown finished leather manufacturer, (which Milwaukee once led the world in production). Tour the factory where goods are made using machines dating back to the 1930s. See 10,000 hides in stock, and visit the downstairs retail store filled with custom briefcases, wallets and handbags.” – Doors Open Milwaukee Website
