Oak Brand Leather

Is a company which has the background to help you in caring for your leather. In addition, we offer our

in all areas of leather custom building and industry manufacturing. As in most areas now, the old

(correct way) of caring for leather or the ”True Quality finish of long ago Lost Technique” has been set aside for incorrect,

quick application finishing products that create multiple leather deterioration and problems.

I am blessed in my expertise and love building and designing saddles and custom leather projects.

Trust me, nothing speaks more than the men and women who love and work as craftsmen with

of long ago and today. Though they have passed on to our final home, they still can be

heard in their work which tells of their craftsmanship and love in what they did and the joy of

leaving a part of their life to be remembered and cherished. I think we should take care of it as

they would ask us to do, so use a product that will do what it says it will do.

OakBrand Leather Conditioner was developed by a master saddle maker,

saddle repairman and designer of 43 years with degree and true knowledge from our past saddle makers and craftsmen.

While I have been blessed to learn, share and carry on a true heritage, I give all the glory and thanks to God.
