Howdy! Tucker Hancock here, welcome to our leather shop! My wife, Lauren, and I started our leather journey making bible and journal covers for military members. I'm an Air Force veteran and wanted to make something worthwhile for my fellow military members. We learned a lot about leather during this time in our lives. Like how different tempers really affect a finished product and what type of tanning is best for certain types of leather goods. My Mother and Father were also making leather goods that were and still are sold in stores accross the country. When our leather supplier came to us asking if we would be interested in purchasing his business we jumped at the opprotunity. Since taking over Fern Thatcher Co my brother and sister in-law have joined the family business as well and here we are! A group of leather crafters who love the industry and crave quality and craftsmanship.

Great product, Great service: Great quality. Unlike a lot of sweatbands on the market, these are cut on a slight curve, so once they're sewn up to size they taper slightly. This makes them fit in the crown of the hat much better than a straight sweatband - a great feature that they don't even mention in the description! Brent cheerfully accommodated my request for a slightly longer length to fit my giant head. Very happy with these sweatbands!
