Our Story

I started creating handmade leather products back in 1977. Once I discovered leather as a medium, it became my passion.

The journey through life is unique for each of us. The handmade leather products created at Log Cabin Leather by Jan are also unique. They will help you define your unique identity and style. They are inspired by our natural world and strike a stunning balance between function, style, and beauty.

Each product offers an unforgettable experience. Feel the texture of the one-of-a-kind hand-tooled design and let your imagination soar. Smell the aroma of the leather and let your mind drift back to times gone by. Be inspired by the original design on your quest for greatness.

Every handmade leather product is created and constructed to provide everlasting quality, durability, and functionality with customer satisfaction the primary goal. 

I hope every product will inspire you, and will open the pathways of your imagination on your adventures through life. I hope it becomes a lifelong keepsake.

My love of animals and my interest in crafts developed as a child. My journey with leather began 44 years ago as I working on my teaching degree in Boston. 

It all began with a $2. book!

The first thing I made was a leather vest which I still wear today. My LOVE of leather was born and it continues to grow.

Leather is such an amazing material, it is a true sensory experience. For most people, the aroma of the leather will take you back to joyful memories of times from the past. Embrace more sensory experiences as you see and feel the detail of the hand-tooled pictures.

Product lines increased as I set out to find solutions for customers who were looking for unique leather products to help them.

I started making belts in all widths for people of all sizes and they soon became my best sellers.  The intricately tooled designs also set these belts apart from others on the market.

Guitar Straps grew from my belt line.  Customers saw the beautiful hand-tooled belt designs and wanted guitar straps with similar designs.  I listened to the problems musicians had with current straps and set out to make the most comfortable straps on the market.  Guitarists love the unsurpassed comfort these fully padded straps provide because it allows them to enjoy playing once again without suffering from pain.
