WELCOME TO STICKMAN LEATHER

I'm Shawn Bettinger, owner of Stickman Leather. I began handcrafting leather items in 1986 during my college years in Syracuse, NY. Each bag is designed, patterned, cut & sewn in my studio in Renton, WA. Stickman Leather bags are handcrafted from the finest #1 grade domestic leathers. As rugged as the Pacific Northwest, each piece is a commitment to fine craftsmanship and durability.The workmanship is guaranteed because our product is of the highest quality. Thank you for exploring the website, looking at the photos and videos of the bags and if you want to see them in person,come on down and see us at Pike Place Market in downtown Seattle!

HAPPY 2016!

Happy 2016 to everyone! I was out in the shop bright and early on January 2nd, making bags, that's what I do.

As always, change is inevitable.

  • I'm losing my shop assistant, Hillary, in April as she's going off to new adventures. I will be sad to see her go but happy for her, she's been a delight to work with.
  • Postal rates have gone up, which means it'll cost you a dollar or two more if you order a bag and have it shipped. 
  • I'm pleased with the new designs that I put out late last year, the Tahoma Bag and the Summit Bag. (Eventually, I'll have photos on this website, but for now you can see them on my Facebook page!) I think these bags are going to be permanent parts of the line in 2016. 
  • I'm pleased that I am continuing my relationship with Seidel tanning out of Wisconsin they supply me with my custom color -Bark Passport- which is a deep, rich brown. 
I hope that 2016 finds all of my amazing customers happy and well!
