 Our Story: This is not our First Rodeo!

Many moons ago- Rene & Clay had a very successful accessories business. Making garden iron, pottery, accent furniture etc... after several years they sold that business to Bassett Furniture and went in different directions. After a few years through modern technology ( Facebook ) they reconnected and came up with this idea of making quality leather goods at fair prices. Roughly 2 years ago, with little money and lots of resources they created there initial line of leather bags and took off crawling.

Now - with all the great business experience and a passion for Fine Leather Goods. We are now ready to introduce The American Buffalo Collection. Over the past two years we have sourced all our materials , built our manufacturing, and out sourced our fulfillment and just need to acquire the materials. Our American Buffalo leather is genuine and 40% stronger than traditional cowhide and is unparalleled in its softness, strength, and durability. Showcasing the beautiful marks of a range animal, the natural grains of the Buffalo hides are not corrected with artificial embossing or plating. All our American Buffalo leather is treated with an earth-friendly vegetable tanning process. Resulting in the highest quality luxurious leather. By adding detailed materials and craftsmanship our products are built to last. We are so confident in our products that we back it with a Lifetime Guarantee.

 Your Contribution:

We have positioned ourselves over the past year organizing and designing The American Buffalo Leather Collection. We have sourced all our materials and have finalized our samples for the collection. Our manufacturing is ready to take on the necessary volume and now we are prepared to start our project. We only need your help in getting to our minimal goal of $12,000 dollars to order our buffalo leather hides from the tannery and begin production.
