The Original Wallahatchie Company...    crafters of remarkable leather goods.

 
 

Wallahatchie is a state of mind for me. I love anything to do with the outdoors. And although my business keeps me inside most of the time, I dream of ways to get outdoors. Take me fishing in the awesome gulf waters or fly fishing for bream in a friend’s farm pond.  Take me riding horses on mountain trails or hunting quail on a South Georgia preserve. One of my favorite sayings is that “time spent outdoors is not deducted from one’s lifespan”. I grew up camping and still consider hiking In the mountains of New Mexico as a boy scout among my fondest memories .

I have a wooden sign in my store with a quote from Winston Churchill that simply says, “There is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man.” That sign is why The Original Wallahatchie Company began with leather and craftsmanship. The feel, the aroma, the quality and the pride we have in knowing that our products will outlast most items is why we hope you will find them not only unique, but maybe,  just maybe they’ll bring a little of the outside in for you.

Please visit us often. We have many projects on the drawing board and look forward to posting them on our site.

Everlasting Style

Our leather goods are crafted from 1 1/4 bridle leather to last a lifetime.  And, each item is made by hand.

The Hoof Pick

All true horsemen know the value of a good hoof pick when riding. We've taken these solid brass folding hoof picks, nickel plated some and left the others natural. When used as a buckle and attached to our 1 1/4″ bridle leather strap it makes a unique belt that I'm sure will become your favorite.

The Fish Hook

To make our fish hook buckle we first drew it out, then made a solid brass mold then cast them out of zinc. Our buckles are made just for us in the United States and added to our 1 1/4″ bridle leather or canvas belts. You don't have to be a fisherman to wear it, but you do have to love the water.

The Rover

What well dressed dog doesn’t love bridle leather. Our collars and leashes are made from the same 9 1/2 oz bridle leather as our original belts. The 1″ dark Havana Brown collar is the perfect size and color for your best friend. The leash is 48 inches long. Just right for control without getting in the way.
