Kaehler 1929 Article

Kaehler 1920 is a maker of fine leather goods. All products are made in Chicago using leathers from our neighbors, the Horween Leather Company. Kaehler was founded in Evanston, IL in 1920 by locksmith Walter Gustav Kaehler. When faced with an increasingly high demand for fixing locks on travel trunks, Kaehler developed a business as a purveyor of fine luggage and leather goods. Now in its 4th generation, Kaehler 1920 remains a family business and is committed to locally made goods of the highest quality.
