Leather and me!


An odd story about leather goods! In the late 1800’s, Dana Buxton had started his own business distributing small notions. Ironically, his most profitable business idea actually began with a loss. One day Dana had the misfortune of losing his keys through a hole in the pocket of his pants. His wife, Julia, turned that misfortune around by making him a small leather pouch to hold his keys. Family and friends showed an interest in having their own pouches and thus a new small leather goods business was born. Buxton Company was formally organized in 1898.

A collection of fine leather goods for you and me.
