Company Profile

Welcome to Auburn Leather

Since 1863, five generations of leather craftsmen have cultivated the passion, knowledge, and skills required to produce the finest quality American leather.

As Auburn Leather celebrates 150 years of “Made in America” leather craftsmanship, we continue to achieve consistently superior leather by controlling the entire supply chain – from initial development, to raw material selection, tanning, coloring, cutting, and testing. Using only U.S. domestic dairy cowhides, we deliver optimum strength, colorfast and crocking resistance while maintaining mellow temper (feel) and for our leather laces, optimum “tie-ability.”

We have a wide selection of leathers to meet your every need – from our market-leading Genuine Rawhide Lace Leather for footwear to our professional-grade Pro Glove Advantage™ leather for Sporting Goods to our array of finished leathers for the tack and saddlery markets. Our contract manufacturing services can also provide you with tailor-made, custom die-cut parts for footwear accents, furniture trim, and other design applications.

The success of our company is our people. Our in-house veteran team from front office to tanning floor brings centuries of experience in understanding and working with leather and the market leading companies that source it. Our success is built on lasting customer relationships and delivering excellent products and service everyday.
