It all started with a journal cover that a dear friend showed me. I said, "Hey, I can make that!" So I did, using the leather tools that my father passed down to me that were originally my great grandmother's. When I first got them years ago from my father, I didn't have a clue how to use them. Back then I just carried them around and kept them for sentimental reasons, but they are now true tools of the trade.
With my friends helping me with everything from our logo design, field testing the products we come up with, to the feedback we get, it helps us improve. We haven't stopped making leather products since!
The "317" in our name comes from Colossians 3:17, a verse in the Bible which says, "And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him." I give God all the credit for giving me the ability to create the things I do using the natural leather that He created.
All of the profits of this business are given to missions and missionaries around the world; in other words, we don't make a dime off of any product that is sold. We pay for only for our supplies and the rest goes to missionaries in support The Great Commission as outlined in Matthew 28:19.
We hope that you will get many years of use out of the products we make and I pray they serve as a reminder of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, who forgives us of our sins. If you want to know more, Contact Us, I'd be glad to answer any questions you may have.
Our timeless and simple designs appeal to multiple generations.
If it doesn't look right, It doesn't leave the shop.
We use only the best leathers to produce our products, all made by hand.
We love our customers! Do you have a question? Are you looking for that one of a kind gift that you can't find anywhere else? Drop us a line anytime, and we will get back to you with answers!
