Founder and Owner: Vahe Imasdounian

Vahe Imasdounian, a third generation leather tanner, founded Danfield, Inc. in 1981. The family’s history in the trade can be traced as far back as the 1880’s when his grandfather started a leather tannery. After immigrating to the United States in the late 1970’s, Vahe Imasdounian brought the family tradition to Los Angeles and established his leather finishing plant in the City of Commerce, California. Having grown up in the business, Vahe learned the process of leather tanning from the ground up. He has traveled the globe in search of high quality hides and transformed Danfield, Inc. from a small 1,000 square foot facility into a 60,000 production facility with state of the art, digital machinery that produces thousands of square feet of leather hides per day.

Today Danfield, Inc. is the only U.S. based finishing plant west of Wisconsin.  The current state of environmental affairs and the personal responsibility Mr. Imasdounian feels toward Mother Earth prompted him to develop EcoHides™, an ecologically friendly, non-toxic leather for the furniture, airline and fashion industries.
