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 NY roots with brick and mortar shops in Skaneateles & Saratoga Springs.

Still crafting all their leather and canvas goods in small batches by hand, slowly, thoughtfully and intentionally growing their brand with a loyal, mighty little team by their side.

Handcrafted, well-traveled, USA made.
