About

The Process:


Meet the Maker:
My name is Jesse McAllister and I'm the creator behind McAllister Leather. My leather journey started a few years back when I was searching for a leather journal. Unable to find a satisfying product I decided to try my hand at making one myself. With the extra scrap leather I also made a simple card wallet. Looking back, neither product was great, but the spark of passion had already been lit and I immediately knew I had discovered a new hobby.

After a few years of honing my craft, sourcing some of the best leather in the world, designing practical leather products, and testing them in the field, I've decided to turn my dream into a reality and can't wait to see where the journey takes me. I believe that I have something to offer to those who are sick of factory made, machine sewn, and poorly put together products. If you're in search of a quality hand made product, you've come to the right place ;) 

The Brand:

Artisan Leather Handmade in Las Vegas

McAllister Leather Co is a one man project where every product is made completely by hand, with no shortcuts. McAllister Leather Co products are made to look great, wear well, and stand the test of time for decades to come. 


The Leather:

McAllister Leather Co products feature leather sourced from Wickett and Craig, one of the most respected tanneries in the US and worldwide. 

Wickett and Craig leather is a completely vegetable tanned leather using age old tanning methods to produce the most durable and lasting leather available in the market (most leather available today is chrome tanned, which is a cheaper and quicker method to tan leather, but inferior in the long run). 

Wickett and Craig also feature all full grain leather, meaning that none of the steers natural scarrings or markings are masked in the tanning process (most tanneries cut the top layer off of the leather to remove the natural markings and blemishes, but doing so removes the most durable layer of the leather).
