About American Leather Co.

Using only the finest American leather, we handcraft each and every piece to be truly unique, offering subtle shade & texture differences that showcase our pure quality. The glove leather used is the softest, most supple leather in the world. The natural oils in your hand allow each piece to age beautifully with time, like a vintage leather jacket or a favorite pair of boots.

The brand was designed to use 3 core colors year-round, across all seasons and all climates. Each color was inspired by the personal experiences of our diverse team of designers and where they call home.

The beautiful rich Black was created with the thought of America's busiest cities in mind, knowing how easy it is to take a simple black piece from day-to-night. Our deep Brandy has beautiful undertones that imitate the true colors you see in nature while hiking through America's greatest national parks. Lastly, our natural Vachetta was influenced by America's abundance of warm beaches, both on the coasts and in the south.

Our pieces have been constructed to compliment any outfit anytime; whether you are attending one of Tennessee's famed music festivals, shopping in the heart of New York, or cheering on your favorite sports team. Each bag has been specially designed with true American values in mind, bringing back the desire to live the American dream.
