North Idaho Leather is a family owned business that started in our living room April, 2018. We take pride in offering the highest quality product that you won’t find in a brick and mortar store; made by hand and made in the USA. North Idaho Leather sources only the highest quality materials available. Using old world craftsmanship, our goal is to create products that will last a lifetime and that our customers will be proud to own.
My journey into this business was really quite simple and accidental. I needed a quality holster so that I could carry my sidearm with me while hunting in the mountains. The problem was, I couldn’t find anything that I liked on the shelf. I explored a couple other options and really didn’t care for the quality that I was finding. So, I decided to go ahead and see if I could do any better myself. I had never made anything from leather before. What is the worst that could happen? I bought a few tools and some leather, and did some serious studying. I was going to meet the challenge head on. Turns out, I wasn’t too shabby and I discovered a new passion. I spent a few more months honing my skills and learning new ones. After a while, word got out and I was being asked if I could make some items for others. I decided that I would open a business and make it my full time job. I enjoy crafting items that other people need and appreciate.
We are excited for what the future has in store and we look forward to meeting incredible people and making new friends along our journey. Welcome to the North Idaho Leather family.
