We are The Southern Trapper, known for our incredibly durable leather goods, and our commitment to social and environmental responsibility. Each piece is made by hand with leather sourced entirely from the United States and acquired for positive environmental reasons.
We initially set out to design a sleek and durable wallet, and what we ended up with was the world's first impenetrable wallet - bullet resistant, fire resistant, and RFID blocking.
Everything that comes from The Southern Trapper, is made with the highest quality and designed to last a lifetime. Each corner, edge, and stitch is meticulously designed to be heirloom quality. Our wallets are not only rugged pieces of American history, they are designed to withstand anything you throw at them. Our leather goods were born through radical science and designed for the modern American man.
We begin by working with a network of trappers across the United States who have been properly vetted to ensure they only provide leather obtained for positive environmental reasons. We aim to up-cycle leather that would otherwise be discarded by farmers and agriculturalists whose crops and livelihoods are affected by invasive and destructive animals.
We are dedicated to making our leather goods with the meanest and baddest animals we can find- Beaver, Alligator, and Wild Boar.
Once we have acquired the leather, we employ a wide range of leather working techniques that are deep rooted in traditional, natural leather working.
Each wallet is meticulously designed to never tatter or fall apart – all our leather goods are heirloom quality and don’t leave our shop until they are ready to provide a lifetime of service.
