Our partners at SLATE COLLECTION, command a higher quality product, a natural product that shows the real leather. -- Pete Hendrickson, S.B. Foot Company
They say a craftsman is only as good as his tools. And as entrepreneurs ourselves, we recognize that superior work requires superior instruments. It doesn’t happen by chance. It’s the result of arduous planning, meticulous design and an unwavering commitment to quality. That’s why we are proud to offer locally sourced, artfully crafted products that not only inspire, but also perform and endure.

With great leather as our foundation, we are able to bring intuitive, inspired designs to life. The leather used in our products will only get better with time. Leather is a natural material that has markings and texturing. It changes with age and we embrace the character the faint scars and scratches give to our products. It’s naturally water-resistant so leather cleaners, solvents or conditioners are not recommended. To clean, use a warm damp cloth as necessary.
