We craft leather goods per your specifications and stamp them with our passion.


We love what we do.

We are a team of dreamers, designers, craftsmen, and customer experience heroes who are committed to set new standards for quality and craftsmanship in leather goods manufacturing in India. We aspire to create leather goods of exceptional quality and value for our customers by leveraging the collective talent and experience of our people.



In 1998, GNN International was founded as an exporting company in India with a focus on exporting handicrafts to the US and European markets.

Soon, realizing the potential of finished leather goods in these markets we started exporting fine leather goods to wholesalers and corporate customers. In 2002, we started our own leather goods production in Kolkata and opened our Sales Office in the United States the same year.

The idea was to move up the supply chain and produce leather goods with better control over the entire process of manufacturing and therefore ensuring better efficiency and consistency in quality of our products. We decided to focus on custom leather goods manufacturing predominantly for our corporate customers. This turned out to be a deft decision as this focus helped us carve a niche quickly and grow our business.

In 2010, we started our Kanpur plant where we started crafting world class equestrian leather goods and fine leather pet products for our customers around the world. We have since expanded into crafting leather bags and accessories at this facility.


We believe that while trends come and go, a truly iconic and lasting design is here to stay. We believe that a leather bag is not just a bag but your trusted travel companion and a leather wallet is not just something to hold your cash in but to let you do in a way that exudes your style.

We, therefore, aspire to create leather goods that become a part of your personal story. We create solutions that are comfortable and functional in design created in honest materials defining each with values of purity and sustainability.

We are committed to provide world-class experiences and outcomes for our customers by developing relationships based on service excellence, partnership and mutual understanding. We’re a professional services organization dedicated to excellence.



Our business is sustained by the support of our most valuable and differentiated asset – Our People and their competence, commitment and creativity. Their talent and dedication is only matched by the beauty of the products they create.

They seek meaning in their work and believe their work is representative of what is best in them. They are talented, they are industrious, and they are inspired to create quality leather goods that transcend the depraved and rabid consumption of consumer goods. They strive to create something to behold, to cherish, and to pass on to generations.

Our people love challenges – they struggle, they navigate through challenges, and they overcome those challenges. Truth be told, challenging work nourishes and sustains their professional spirits.

Yes, our craftsmen are everyday heroes who pour their heart and souls into crafting leather goods of phenomenal quality and value for you and we couldn’t be prouder of them.
