Welcome Back! Tanner Goods; Portland, Oregon

1.5 years of wear on the SAME belt (left) New version (right)

Hand-crafted goods produced with time tested tools and heritage techniques

"Our small team of craftsmen produce every piece by hand in our studios here in the Northwest. We utilize the same tools that have been put to work for decades manufacturing heritage leather goods, and in many cases have sought out antique equipment that produce the best results. All of our sewing is done by a heritage saddle maker who started as an apprentice in the industry in 1964. For the past 45+ years he has been honing his craft, and has been generous enough to pass along his knowledge and skill to the rest of our team." -Tanner Goods

Everything they make turns to gold. They do it the right way from old techniques handed down generation after generation. I hope you get to see a nice little bit of the process behind making these goods and think a bit more about your appearance instead of "just buying a belt". There is more to it, and here it is!
