About Joseph Hanna

Joseph Hanna Fine Leather Goods is located in the heart of Greenwich Village, New York City, and has provided quality leather goods to meet the styles and needs of New Yorkers since 1962. Prior to 1982, the store was called The Cow’s Outside and was run by Joseph Hanna’s cousin.

Joseph Hanna has worked in the leather business since 1977 when he came to America to work for his sister in a leather factory she owned. It was there he learned the skills necessary to fulfill his own dream of owning a leather goods boutique. In 1982, Joseph took over his cousin’s business, and it then became Joseph Hanna Fine Leather Goods. Since 1982, Joseph has made a passion out of providing stylish leather goods, whether it be backpacks, briefcases, purses, messenger bags, or travel bags.

Joseph’s love and passion for his work shows as he works 7 days a week, but his days are never dull. He is always being visited by an old friend he’s done business with or by loyal customers stopping by to see what’s new. Joseph cares about his customers and customer service. His generosity over the years is reciprocated by his loyal customers every day.
