Some years ago, after receiving a knife as a gift, Mat Gillenwater decided to try his hand at leather work by creating his first custom sheath. The project was more successful than he could have ever anticipated. He continued his pursuit of leathercraft knowledge by studying books, attending workshops, and learning from expert leather craftsmen that came before him. In a few short years, he perfected his craft with a variety of sheath designs, pouches, and other unique outdoor items.
In 2014, Mat committed to full-time leather work. He partnered with well-known names in the outdoor industry that fell in love with his quality work. His personal goal is to continue growing to fill the need for quality handmade leather products for camping, outdoor, re-enactment, and bushcraft enthusiasts.
