Award winning magazine Martha Stewart Living hand picked Minnesota business The Leather Guy (http://www.theleatherguy.org)] as a supplier in the August 2010 issue for their quality leather hides and leather supplies. The Leather Guy, brick and mortar based in St. Charles Minnesota, operates online and is one of the largest Top Rated Sellers on eBay. Offering a full line of leather products and supplies, The Leather Guy has shipped to over 40 countries worldwide.
In addition to offering quality products, owners Tracy and Keith Brubaker have a firm belief in quality customer service. Having been in the leather hide business since 1997, the Brubakers have seen firsthand how purchasing leather can be a sensatory experience. “Leather is a very tactile business so when we sell online, we need to accurately describe the leather so it makes the customer feel as if they have the leather in their hand”, says Tracy. The website offers detailed descriptions and high quality images of each piece of leather, so customers know exactly what they are ordering.
The Brubakers also stress that in order to help every customer, you must understand them first. “We ask questions and take time to get to know the customer, no matter how big or small the order,” says Keith. “There are a lot of first time leather crafters out there. We help them figure out the type of leather, feel, texture and thickness so they can create exactly what they want whether it is rustic, classy, contemporary or high fashion. Projects are created in the heart, mind and soul of our customers and we go above and beyond to satisfy exactly that. We take pride in our customers and their final product.” The Brubakers went on to explain how the bison hide is raised and tanned here in the USA using processes that date back over 200 years. “Our bison hide is ‘old world tanned’, which means we use significantly less chemicals to produce a supple, soft leather”, says Keith.
In addition to being featured as a leather supplier in the August 2010 issue of Martha Stewart Living, The Leather Guy has supplied their unique, more natural bison leather hides to employees of Ted Turner Enterprises to sell on their ranches and to Zac Brown and the Zac Brown Band for Zacs’ jeep seats and for the bands guitar straps. The Leather Guy also supplied fur skins and leather hides for the 2009 film Year One.
