Waxed Canvas & Leather. American. Sturdy.

We are Spencer & Ben Young.  We grew up in South Georgia.  Ben now lives in Wake Forest, NC and Spencer lives in Thomasville, GA.  We both work in the coffee industry and dream big in our spare time.  Thank you in advance for your help and support.  

 

We are working to create a sustainable business that strives to bring quality handcrafted goods back into the American marketplace.  While we are off to a good start, we still need your help!  In order to be successful there are some big ticket items we must purchase, including a leather logo stamp (so you can tell it's a Sturdy Bros. item) an industrial sewing machine, and heavy duty dryer (for our waxing process).  By supporting financially we will be able to make these investments as well as purchase our materials in bulk.  Join with us and help us along our journey!

Risks and challenges

Right now, we are just a small two man (brother) operation. This is great right now because we control the quality but the goal is to grow into an operation that just two men can not do themselves! Our challenge is to continue making a quality product that we feel comfortable having the Sturdy Brothers stamp on as we grow.

One of the brothers (Spencer) has owned a business (coffee shop) going on five years. Along with that comes…problems! Road blocks! Set backs! Creative thinking and problem solving is your best friend in business and that's what we are good at. Any good business is a work in progress, always changing, evolving, growing, getting better. You can rest assured that your goods are in sturdy hands and that we will figure out a way to get you quality products whatever comes our way.
