Our leather products are made by hand in our quaint workshop on our small family farm on the pleasant prairie.
We customize our products to meet your style.
We use real leather and durable hardware creating one quality piece at a time.
By making it to this page you must be somewhat interested in our crazy life or hopefully our leather goods products!
We have had a long journey full of fumbles along the way so let's just fast forward to today. We have a quaint hobby farm located in rural Spring Valley where we have Spotted Draft horses, ducks, chickens, Australian Shepherd and Border Collie dogs along with a custom leather shop!
Our main goal is to have a happy, healthy sustainable life for our family. The leather shop is Heather's main job along with primary livestock caretaker with Henry's help. We LOVE the animals we have here on the farm and often times get side tracked by stopping to watch them play.
The horses on our farm, Pumpkin, Suzie Q, Jack, Dexter, Tug and Sally are pure delight. We enjoy each individual for their unique personality. We used to operate a small carriage and sleigh ride business with Pumpkin and Suzie Q called Doubletree Carriage Company and thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity of attending weddings, parties, engagement rides, family events; it was SO rewarding to see the smiles on peoples faces when the horses would arrive. You can find us giving rides at various locations in the area.
The quackers and cluckers keep us in hysterics as they waddle about the farm stealing flowers and eating pesky bugs. Often times they will come out to see who has stopped by for a visit.
Leather Shop! Our business started out as a horse drawn carriage service and then baby Henry came along. Without late night sitters that brought a halt to our romantic carriage offerings that we loved so much. We picked up a hobby of working leather and it has grown into a small business. Our focus is making a functional, well built product that will withstand the test of time and be passed down for generations. John enjoys buildings saddles, holsters and many things cowboy related. He's been studying with a Master Saddler and reads countless books. There is always something new to learn and patterns to perfect to be able to get a comfortable ride for you and your horse. There is much knowledge and time that goes into building a saddle that will last the time from you to your grandkids! Heather enjoys creating smaller projects and takes on unique one of a kind momentos. Even the smallest projects are agonized over for fit and finish ensuring heavy duty construction. The leather bracelets are sturdy enough to become a replacement strap on something, do they need to be that well made, no but if you are going to make something why not make it the best! Other items that you can find on our workbenches include gun rigs, holsters, belts, purses, phone cases, knife sheaths, chaps, etc. We will try anything once!
Family; we are a family of three! Henry is finally to the age where we can really get out and explore the World. There is much to see in God's creation and we all love to explore the great outdoors via foot and hoof! You might find us hiking or riding horses.

Thank you for your support!
