04. our story

The Local Branch started in 2009 while maker duo Blaine & Mackenzie were forging their path in their craft - pioneering an ethos in artisan, quality, USA made leather and apparel goods. Their journey started out of an Airstream trailer and has taken them all across America - and now they find themselves, back to their roots, in Upstate NY. Still creating everything in small batches and by hand for their brick + mortar and online shop.

Over the last 11+ years in business, the couple has grown beyond what their own hands can make, and now they also curate a highly selected offering of other unique makers' goods as a part of their growing collection.

Handcrafted, well-traveled, USA made.
