The Emil Erwin studio is located at 1300 Clinton Street in suite 129 of north Nashville’s Marathon Village, a former Victorian-era car factory. (Directions) We share our 1,200 square foot space with cap and tie designer Otis James.
Everyone is welcomed to stop in to say hi, and shop our in-house store. However, please keep in mind that this is a working studio and we might not have a lot of time to stop and chat. We’re around from 9 to 5 weekdays, and 11 to 2 on Saturdays. You might want to call 615-750-2735 to make sure someone’s there before you drop by.
Chicago’s legendary Horween Leather Company is our main source for hides. The canvas we use is from New Jersey’s Fairfield Textiles. Both companies were started in the late 1800's and are still family run.
A complete range of Emil Erwin designs are available in our Nashville studio and on our website. Select bags and accessories are also carried by Barneys New York, online and in their Madison Avenue flagship as well as C.P.H. in Switzerland.
Unfortunately we are unable to offer repair services on non-Emil Erwin items at this time.
We apologize for the delay. Please rest assured that someone will get back to you. That said if it’s been more than a week and you’ve not yet heard from us, try again. Things do fall through the cracks from time to time.
Sorry, we can’t take custom orders. However, we can make certain adaptations to some of our existing designs, changing the length of a strap. Unfortunately, we can’t make major alterations to our designs. Send us a message and we would be happy to discuss further.
You never know! Let’s just say that if you're great on an industrial sewing machine and are obsessed with perfection, you should definitely give us a call.
