After a tragic zip-lining accident, founder Ty Bowman was left unable to walk for 3 years. To pass time and stay positive, he read motivational and instructional books, leather crafting included. As time passed by, Ty was trying to figure out how to make his difference in the world and coincidentally enough, get quality and memorable Christmas gifts for his family. Unfortunately, he was broke and options seemed limited at the time. On the drive home later that day, he spotted a discarded leather couch on the side of the road and in that moment, he had an epiphany! He salvaged the leather from the couch and made wallets, toiletry bags, purses, and passport cases – everyone loved their gifts and something finally clicked.
