About Us / US Leather Shop History: This is our family business. We are leather workers.
We believe in the Lord. We believe families should have the opportunity to work side by side. We have three small children. And we love being together. We've spent the last 18 months traveling across this beautiful country ,living in a tiny camper. It was very challenging and also an incredible adventure. We've landed in Akron, Ohio and are now calling It home.
Our leather life began 5 years ago. At the foot of Lookout Mountain in a small cabin in Georgia where we tanned deer hides and went "off the grid". We hauled water from the spring in buckets, hand washed clothes and hung them on the line to dry, and I cooked all of our food on a wood stove. It was an incredible time in our life. We read the Bible, learned how to sing Psalms. It was wonderful and very difficult at the same time.
We are currently doing belts and custom pieces. 100% handmade by our family. We put a stainless steel buckle on them. If you ever want to change out the buckle we put them on snaps for your pleasure
We size to your pant size. Just choose the larger of the size you typically wear. We have sized folks this way for years. If you would like to send a specific measurement that is fine.
For those that have ordered before with us, you know we have a super liberal return policy. I can always sell a "broken in belt", so if for any reason you want a return or different color, just give me a call or email and we will take care of you. This is my family business and we are interested in making long lasting relationships. Doug Tharp. Owner and Leather Maker.
