How do you make your products?

All of our products are made in our small studio in Salmon, Idaho. We use a combination of traditional craftsman techniques, such as hand-stitching, beveling, and edge burnishing, as well modern technology, such as a laser cutter and an industrial sewing machine, to create our items. They are made in small batches by your-truly. Follow along with us on Instagram and sign up for our frequently infrequent newsletter to get a glimpse into our production. 

From where do you source your materials?

Our U.S. cowhides come from Weaver Leather, a leather supplier located in Mt. Hope, OH that specializes in high quality leather from some of the world’s top tanneries. We also source the majority of our leather working tools from Weaver.

Our wood is sourced from Ocooch Hardwoods, a small family-owned lumber company in Viola, WI. 

Our hardware is all solid brass and sourced from Buckleguy, located in Newportbury, MA. 

How do I care for my leather goods?

You can expect your new leather good to feel somewhat stiff at first but you should see it begin to patina within the first couple of weeks. This patina process acts as a sort of natural softener and conditioner. However, if you’d like to give your item a little extra loving, I’d recommend this leather conditioner. If you need to spot clean your leather, you can use a bit of warm water and gentle soap. Just allow it time to dry in a flat spot so that it doesn’t develop any warping.
