About Us


Demeke and Aubrey Dessie, Owner's of Zelaki Leather Company

We are Demeke and Aubrey Dessie! While I (Aubrey) am an Indiana native, Demeke grew up in Ethiopia, shining and repairing shoes. The knowledge and skill gained through that season is what lead us to start a business in the leather industry.

We began in 2020, crafting all products ourselves. When our dreams became bigger than our workshop could handle, we partnered with a small business in Ethiopia to assist in the crafting process!

 While we remain the primary designers, our Ethiopian team produces the majority of our goods. Together we focus on quality products, honest business practices, and exceptional employee care.
