The Story of Wild Things Leather Goods

Sarah – maker and creative behind Wild Things Leather Goods – is a mama to eight, striving to create beauty all around her. Her small batch leather goods business, something that started as a way to encourage outdoor adventure in families, has evolved into a full line of exquisite leather bags, leather backpacks, and other leather accessories such as earrings and wallets.

Her heirloom quality work is designed and built by hand in Lafayette, Indiana. Every piece boasts vegetable tanned leather, processed start to finish right here in the United States. American-sourced solid brass hardware adds an extra touch of durability and elegance. Her work will accompany you on your wildest adventuring and only become better and more beautiful for having seen sun and the sand and the mountains and the sea – kind of like you!

Sarah often works in pockets of time through her days of raising and homeschooling her eight wildlings on their Indiana homestead. She can be found with a baby on her back, as she cuts and prepares your leather pieces. Her kids and husband are her constant sidekicks on this venture and her family is always grateful for your support!
