Uncompromising Quality

You want leather goods that are long lasting, functional, and fun, so we use the best leather, hardware, designs, and crafting skills to make our leather goods. We design our leather goods to be fun, functional, and of uncompromising quality so you can be confident that our leather goods are Made in USA and built to last.

Sustainability

We have a great respect for nature so we wanted to make sure that carried through to our business. We strive to ensure the sustainability of land resources, animals, and materials so they will be here for future generations.

Land Stewardship

Sustainable Land and Resource Management
Sustainable Land and Resource Management

The American Bison help sustain the land naturally because of their natural grazing and movements. These Bison eat their native foods and live on their native land. When Ranchers leave the land in its natural state, it thrives.

Animals

Free Roaming Bison
Free Roaming Bison - Sustainable Animal Management

Bison are managed in a way more sustainable than cattle because of the natural grazing allowed through ranching practices. Their habitat is maintained because they are able to roam free and live off the land.

Materials

Sustainably Sourced Bison Leather from Ranches in the USA

Bison leather is more sustainable than cow leather because Bison are raised in a more natural and sustainable way. Bison meat is healthier than beef and Bison also have fewer CO2 emissions than cattle over their lifespan.

Partnerships

We partner with ranchers, tanners, retailers, and with State Parks all over the USA because strong partnerships produce better outcomes. You may have seen our leather goods at Yellowstone National Park, Custer State Park, and Blue Mounds State Park to name a few.

Community Support

Our story started in Worthington, MN because our community supported us, shaping who we are today. We continue to handcraft quality leather goods, hire locally, support community efforts financially, and help sustain our global environment. Founders Bill and Lauri Keitel have led the way on environmental improvements. They have founded initiatives like the Silent Oak Society, an organization that plants oak trees in towns throughout southwest Minnesota, and sponsor local youth sports, and Worthington CFC. Thanks for being a part of our story.
