Crafting Leather Goods With Our Hands In Laramie, Wyoming
How It All Started
I found this guy in town named Stan that was doing some free lessons at a local leather shop. So I took his class and just started asking questions. He got me pointed in the right direction and between that and Youtube I was off to the races.
On one of our trips back to visit my folks we stopped at the Horween tannery. At the end of the tour they gave us a huge roll of free leather. We did our first wallet project on Kickstarter using the leather that was given to us from Horween.
Over the next three years we grew to about six employees at the shop in our garage. We initially intended for it to be all hand goods, but we got peer pressured into doing a tote. Next were the hats, which were incredibly popular.
Fast forward to today and we own a building in downtown Laramie with a team of 20+ crafters, tens of thousands of customers, and trying to keep up with the Lord’s provision. It’s kind of crazy to say that it's been seven years since we started.
Adam was instructed to work hard and subdue the land. The apostle Paul encouraged those in Thessalonica to "aspire to live quietly, and to mind your own affairs, and to work with your hands." We believe that working with your hands is a respectable trade, so that's what we do.
Each product that passes through our Laramie workshop is carefully crafted to wear in, not out. Details are paid attention to and products are built to stand time. We are proud to offer a lifetime guarantee on the construction of our leather products.
America was built upon sojourning tradesmen who carried their skills from around the world to live and work in a country where "In God We Trust.” It’s our desire to carry on the traditions of our forefathers while creating products for the modern day. Every Range product was crafted with human hands in Laramie, WY.
We source all of our leather from the Horween Tannery in Chicago, IL. Founded in 1905, Horween Leather Company provides unparalleled quality and consistency for all their tannages. Just as Range products are made by hand, all Horween leathers are tanned by hand as well.
Looking to buy Range products for your boutique or store? We’re happy to offer wholesale pricing for retailers of all sizes.
