About Us

Your grandfather didn't have to consider quality.

Unfortunately, in today's disposable consumer culture, you don't have that luxury.

We have all been trained to be consumers, no longer clients or customers and we are all consuming far too much.

I advise people to buy less, buy wisely and make it last.


When your grandfather bought a saddle he could expect it to last his lifetime.

If you buy one from us, you can do the same.
