Mangold Leather hides are thick and supple, featuring an incredible, pebble-grained texture that always improves with age. These hides come direct from humane, grass-fed bison farms throughout Colorado, where the animals are grown for meat, living a natural life on native prairie-like conditions.
Like the animals themselves, this material is exceptionally rugged, beautiful, strong, and empowering.
Thanks to these bison, we are bringing you bags, hats and belts made from the finest material that land can create.
Every item that leaves our shop is a gift to help you become everything that you have the potential to be. It's time to inhabit this planet with pride, courage and joy.

There are great changes coming to this planet; it is our turn now to write history; to craft our own brightest future. These bags, hats and belts are tools and companions for you to more effectively engage in the healing and transformation of our planet...

Bison are a symbol of dignity and intelligence within the animal kingdom. They symbolize a life lived in harmony with the land; a species who inhabit bold, comfortable lives, yet whose very existence improves the land on which they grow... Bison's once-mighty herds swelled across the prairies of North America, leaving a wake of rich, luscious soil wherever they roamed. The massive layers of topsoil that are the pride of western growers is all thanks to bison and plants of the past...
They are not lost. They are not forgotten. Bison are regaining their strength, just as humans themselves are regaining their connection to this living planet, and to their will to see her growing healthy and in balance again. Bison are a symbol for the world to come, a world in which humans may enjoy rich, decadent lives while living in direct contribution to the health and balance of the world around them.
