Minnesota leatherworks company – Handmade Leather Goods

Buffalo Billfold Company is a Minnesota leatherworks company that specializes in American Bison leather goods. Our leatherworks shop handcrafts wallets, purses, belts, briefcases, luggage, and other handmade leather goods. Our leatherworkers are highly skilled because they’ve been taught by talented Leathersmiths Bill and Lauri Keitel. Bill began working on leather before starting this Minnesota leatherworks company. Previously, his leather work focused on shoe repair. The Keitels started their Minnesota leather working company back in 1972 in the historic National Bank of Worthington, MN. At that time, their leather work consisted of custom leather goods handmade from cow hide. Now their leather works are created using American Bison full grain leather because it’s the longest lasting type of leather.

A Minnesota Leather Company – Growth and Expansion

As they hand tooled leather, day by day, their leather works slowly expanded to include a variety of handmade leather products. Their initial 8 by 8 foot leather work area was no longer able to house their small leather company. Fortune smiled upon them and they were able to expand their leather work area.  Their expansion eventually took over the basement of the historic Worthington National Bank. Their leatherworks shop grew due to their community valuing artisan craftsmanship.
