Designing Custom Leather Projects

This is a service offered with confidence in years of designing and creating in performance related leather projects. Examples of custom designing include saddles and tack, autos, motorcycles, airplane panels, desk inserts, and furniture. Interior and exterior projects for the casino chains in Nevada, includes specialized animal harness, trapeze and high wire.

But if you have an idea, I can sketch it as you explain any term pertaining to the building of it in order to have you feel comfortable of the outcome. In some instances where a project is justified and in need, I can come to you at your company, ranch or even abroad. For instance, a saddle being sketched by design by Prototyped with conversion into patterns that include making Rule dyes. We also teach making this protype conversion.

I have references in all areas of my skills and training qualifications. Also I design and make Glass Saddle trees with ground work built in your groundwork design or mine as required.

I build to your specs, if it allows consistency in seat fitting.   In other areas where a color item is called for then my airbrush skills are handy which includes custom color matching.  If you have any ideas or dreams, or need a leather related projects….

Carol Marton Mathieus

Carol Marton Mathieus, Nov. 11, 1941 – June 15, 2009

in Loving Memory

Carol was born in Lake City, Florida, to John and Grace Williams on November 11, 1941. Carol’s early life was shared with two brothers, Rex and Paul, where they all grew up on the family tobacco plantation in Lake City, Florida.
Carol completed her high school education in Lake City where she fell in love with her childhood friend and later sweetheart and husband to be. After finishing college at Tulane in New Orleans, Louisiana, Harry Marton and Carol Williams were married. To allow Harry to become a real estate broker and start a family business, Carol and Harry moved to Stillwater, Oklahoma, where Carol was offered a job at Oklahoma State University. She became assistant to the Dean of the Graduate College and touched so many lives both locally and abroad.

Carol always placed others before herself. In church at Stillwater, she was a lifelong, loving Christian whom became an intercessor for others before God through Christ in prayer. Carol and Harry were blessed in the years which followed with three beautiful daughters, Shauna, Toshia, and Lyne.

In 1988, I met Carol and fell in love with her after a long friendship through our church. Carol of course had suffered a divorce some years back while operating the Stillwater Tag Agency.

Then at church near Muskogee, Oklahoma, where with Carol by my side, I received The Holy Spirit. I also prayed for her hand in marriage. God blessed me with that hand and her heart came with it by The Spirit. After we were married in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma in 1990, Carol became interested in Oakbrand and my Saddle Making and other products then sold in Oklahoma only.

In Broken Arrow after a lesson and meeting with Sam Walton, Carol asked me, “do you want to open a store “. Well, I said ‘yes’. She then recommended Las Vegas, Nevada. At that which it so happened, our daughter and son-in-law and four grandsons had just moved to Nevada in the Fish Lake Valley area of Dyer, Nevada. They also were starting a new life. Carol was a part of that move, also.

Well, you guessed it, Oakbrand left Oklahoma and Carol added Leather to the name, saying, “Ed, it will allow you a broader area to work and learn in sales, and did it”. We became Oak Brand Leather, (O.B.L.). Carol was “The Key, The Heart, and The Spirit of The Company’s Creation”. Her personal involvement was from helping to building saddles, to customer relation and care. There is no truer way to describe Carols loving heart in family and business. Her sacrifices were immense.

Her business mind and ethics will never be matched and never forgotten. Carol was blessed with loving all, even grandchildren. This including my lot with all her heart and life, Carol’s most touching achievement is of course, the one whom wields this pen.
I will miss her and yet I see her each day in my heart and in today’s Oak Brand Leather. A part of Carol always will meet you here in her standards and quality control she required in every product – every item. In the history of Oak Brand Leather in the future our dream lives on, as does hers, Mrs. Carol Mathieus.

With Loving Memory From
The Oak Brand Leather Family

The Cowboy COOP Store Idea

The Cowboy COOP Store Idea

Information Required To Access: 

               This idea stems from an idea I kind of ran by a friend and past associate in Las Vegas, Nevada. Gary Tucker whom as myself knew and have worked for Wilson Franklin, owner of M.L. Leddy’s Saddlery and Boots. A few years back, I talked with Gary about a store with several Western Company’s together to create a service outlet never before seen. Quality Heritage with pure Western flavor from The Chuck Wagon to The Boot Shop with a Tour of the Saddle Shop, a real Western clothing and Apparel, to Western Hats to the largest Tack selection (around) and English, it’s there, too. Now take the youth on to get a bite to eat and buy the way would you get little Tim some of that homemade candy by the Chuck Wagon Restaurant.

Yes, my idea is called The Cowboy Coop Store. My thoughts are three years to fully build, but opened in one year. The plan is to start and build on in segments up to Seven U.S. based Companies and Seven Company members of English, Spanish, Brazil, Germany, Russia, Italy or French. Only one catch is Western or leather Quality with Good names (Class Act). The Best of the Best.

This is but the preemptive in thought. The key is Oklahoma City, Oklahoma at I-0040 and I-35 or a location of similar draw.

Note: Must have Code to (Attention) Access like Truck Package.

Casino Client’s Considerations:

       When designing for the casino’s maintenance or even the interior/exterior designing, Oak Brand Leather uses sometimes magic articles; as well as, custom outfits, horse gear or saddles, door handles, boutiques or just plain chairs, and for tigers, leather gear and accessories.

        The casino chains of Las Vegas can increase your skills by just listening to their needs which the stars come out when you fulfill their needs. But let me say this, if you love variety then the casino chains are the challenge you can’t pass up. Oak Brand Leather encourages you to visit the casinos in any manor since they are the pros.

I respect their style and their direct (no bull) attitude and demeanor.

There are a lot of casinos we contracted for and worked for that are not listed here.
We do not mean the casinos any disrespect…………
please forgive us if we can’t show all names.
