Crossbow Leather was introduced to the world in October 2015 as a line of custom goods for folks who wanted to be a part of the design process, and create a product that caters to their unique way of life. Owner/designer Macy Pryor applied her passion for sculpture and eye for structural design to crafting custom leather bags and accessories.
Macy's true love lies in the craft. In creating these small little sculptures out of leather and fabric that can be used as bags for everyday use. As she developed and cultivated her skillset on each custom piece, she became more passionate about teaching and sharing her knowledge with others.
In 2017, Macy teamed up with BeadWORKS, and traveled to Kenya to teach an entire leather curriculum to add high end beaded leather goods to their already established line of products. As the popularity of these new leather belts, dog collars and hat bands hit the market, she has traveled back once a year since, to help add products, skills, and a new leather workshop, to the BeadWORKS crew.
In February 2018, Crossbow Leather moved from Santa Barbara, to Macy's hometown, Telluride, and opened up a storefront downtown. The shop offers a truly unique experience of retail in the front, and a workshop in the back. With all the production happening right there in the shop, you get to experience the craft first hand, see the products come to life, and meet the people crafting each piece.
Today, Crossbow Leather is more than just a dream for Macy. She has trained a staff of four bad ass babes who are in charge of leather production goals, and running the retail store.
A bag acts as your sidekick on-the-go. It safely holds your most important belongings that are crucial for everyday life. Our objective is to make this bag special, both as the product, and how it was made. For you to know the story behind the vintage or authentic textile, or to know it is the only one that exists in the entire world! We aim to embrace the uncommon, to make the ordinary extraordinary, and to put a little more pep in your step.
