Double SS Leather is a collaborated family venture that started out in 2015 when we discovered that my daughter couldn't find a backpack that could hold her 17" laptop for college. After talking to my parents, who have over 40 years of experience building saddles & harness in their store The Stockman's Stall - we were able to create and design a backpack that would hold up to the rigors of college books and laptops. Not only was this backpack strong and durable, but it was also fashionable.
We worked on further developing the backpacks for almost a year until we were happy with the design, and then we decided to branch out into messenger bags, purses, and tote bags. Our aim is to make merchandise that will last a lifetime..... just like the good old days!
