A proud tradition for over 130 years.

Zelikovitz Leathers is the oldest distributor of leather & craft supplies in the World.

Originally founded as S. Cohen & Son in Halifax, Nova Scotia in 1890 by Samuel Cohen, the company was moved to Ottawa in 1905 by his son, Morris Zelikovitz, and renamed it to Zelikovitz Leathers and Shoe Findings. The business opened on Rideau Street and later moved to Bank Street. Morris' son, Joseph Zelikovitz, changed the name of the enterprise to Zelikovitz Leathers. Zelikovitz Leathers has always set the standard for quality.

With our Head Office in Ottawa Canada, Zelikovitz Leathers services the US and World markets through our Distribution Centre in Alexandria Bay, NY. Our partnership with the US postal service has allowed us to compete in the global marketplace, moving product quickly, efficiently and at reasonable cost.

Zelikovitz Leathers is the authorized distributor for many quality products. We like to say "Serious crafts for serious crafters"
