We are a loving husband and wife team in our 50's. James is the primary maker and designer. Barb does everything else. James is thrilled with this arrangement. Barb is also currently an estate and elder law attorney, which James loves as well. Barb has had quite an adventurous life having invented and reinvented herself with great success many times. James has had quite a boring life up till now. We are both so pleased to be working on our new, exciting project born from James's love of leather. In fact it could be said that the the creation of Tupelo Leather is just a way for James to continue buying leather.

Our leather goods business is currently making Bags, Wallets, Belts and Guitar Straps. Our mission statement is to provide our customers with stylish and functional products made from the highest quality Leathers from Tuscany, Italy and Chicago, USA. For us each item is about the Leather First and the Design Second. We have carefully selected leathers that will age, or Patina with use making them more beautiful and more unique with each use and each experience. Having selected our leathers we now focus on design. Our designs are created in house and are unique to us and the retailers that carry our products. We hope you enjoy using them as much as we have enjoyed making them.
