Seasonal Customer Experience Specialist


Who we are

Clayton & Crume is a leather goods and lifestyle brand based in Louisville, KY. Founded in a college dorm room in 2012, our company has been built upon the values of hard work, quality goods and honest treatment of customers. We pride ourselves in our team-fueled mission to become a nationwide brand that is synonymous with what is tested and lasting.


We founded C&C on a simple idea. Like grandpa’s luggage and dad’s time-tested belt, we believe all leather goods should last a lifetime. Having been raised in a world where “genuine leather” goods have failed us countless times, the elegant qualities of a truly high-quality, full-grain leather product captivated us from the get-go.

We show up to work with an agenda of serving our customers well and making products that will live to tell the story of those who invest in them. We believe that the finest handcrafted goods can only come from the highest quality materials, so we source our leather from the oldest and most trusted tanneries in America. This begins the process that ultimately guarantees a lifetime of satisfaction in each and every one of our products.
