About Us

Our founder, Donald W. Mason, is a third-generation inventor and sewing machine operator. After moving to New York in the early '70s, he started a auto interior repair business. The business quickly expanded and in 1982 a new company was formed offering embossed leather products via mail order and trade shows. Current company was incorporated in June 1983.


Starting Small

The owner formed a manufacturing company producing gold embossed leather bookmarks, which were marketed to religious bookstores in the US, Canada, Australia, and the UK. Within 12 months, customer base had grown to more than 700 accounts.

They expanded the leather embossing service into the fashion industry, offering embossed leather labels. Soon after, they began offering embossing services on pre-made manufactured items such as hip packs, portfolios, backpacks, and laptop cases.

Growth Through Hard Work

By the late 1980s, Mason Anastasia Inc.'s clients included Disney™, Polo Ralph Lauren™, Paramount™, Universal™, and Sony Pictures™, General Motors™, The NFL™, and numerous colleges, just to name a few.

Through extensive research & development, a process for replicating full color artwork on leather was developed. They produced the first washable / stone washable full color leather jean patch, produced exclusively for Guess Jeans™ The business constantly evolved, new and diverse services emerged, such as product design and manufacturing, fabrication, and upholstery. They also began smaller run manufacturing of mouse pads, fishing reel cases, and hip packs.
