Brahmin Leather Works was founded in 1982, the entrepreneurial dream of Bill and Joan Martin. The name Brahmin was used in Boston in the 1800's to describe a cultured person from an established upper class family, and was chosen by the Martin family because they aspired to create a handbag of which even a Brahmin would be proud.

While the Martin family is still heavily involved in the business, Brahmin has grown to include a team of skilled and trained crafts people with exceptional design experience.

Additional Duffy & Shanley clients include Foster Grant, Safety 1st, Anthony & Sylvan, Swarovski, Staples, Twinklets, Touchstone Crystal, and Kaspersky Lab.
