Our Story


Born from an entepreneurs dream of innovation, Saddlemans was founded in 1992 by Lance Nolder. Recognizing the market demand for quality leather hides, he began selling directly out of his three retail boutique locations and instantly received an unwavering response of support. It became apparent that there was a larger need for high quality hides, and thus began the expansion to wholesale and the Design Trade throughout the United States. The collection is developed with the best European machinery and solutions, producing a supple, shiny, generously sized natural product. Saddlemans is now the leading branded hair-on-hide supplier in the country and has grown to include home accessories and custom hide rugs.
