American Bench Craft was started by two brothers with one simple goal: to make a better wallet. They wanted a wallet that would not fall apart at the seams like every other wallet they ever owned. To achieve this, they came up with a design made from a single piece of leather and secured with metal fasteners, NO THREAD STITCHING. Using the finest materials, an elegant design and reliable American craftsmanship, they built a wallet that could truly stand the test of time.
We Launched our Company on February 28, 2014 with a Successful KICKSTARTER Campaign for our Hammer Riveted Wallet
Thank you to all our loyal backers!
Our team is headed by two brothers, Chris and Jason. Jason leads the design and manufacturing efforts, while Chris directs marketing and brand development. Together, they set the foundation for building American Bench Craft into a trusted and recognized brand. Our team began by crafting the perfect leather wallet and have since expanded to products that include: belts, bracelets, hats, bags and holsters, home accents, apparel, pet products, and more.
We handcraft our American made products in our own workshop, using traditional leather working techniques and hand tools. Even our 8 Ton clicker press runs on good old American muscle instead of electricity. Everything from cutting, to stamping, to riveting, to providing the finishing touches is done by hand. Our manual process may be less efficient than a speedy production line, but the quality of handmade leather products is worth the time and effort.
We are inspired by the heritage of our grandfathers and the finely made leather products they relied on throughout their lives: a sturdy belt, a sheath for a sharp axe, a leather bound tablet for note keeping, and more. We strive to bring this quality and craftsmanship to the men and women of our generation, providing classic quality in the form of eye-catching designs. Full grain leather goods are not just our specialty; they are also our daily passion and inspiration.
