Brian Rosenbarker / Homestead Leather
Hometown: East Petersburg, PA
Brian Rosenbarker is the artisan behind Homestead Leather, a small leather company in East Petersburg, just outside of Lancaster PA. Rosenbarker designs and manufactures leather bags, belts, accessories and notebooks using the finest quality American cowhide and hardware available. Each piece is made by hand and finished to perfection, giving them an heirloom quality.
“I strive for excellence in my leather work. I use the best quality materials I can find; I do not believe in cutting corners by using cheap leather or hardware. I use fine American Oak-Tanned leather in my products. This combination of leathers gives my products a unique style that you will find nowhere else. I use solid brass or stainless steel hardware and strong nylon thread. Because I care about the quality of my work, I guarantee everything I make for life against defects in materials and workmanship. With proper care, my products will last decades.”
In addition to his Pennsylvania leather shop, Brian Rosenbarker’s work can be found at many area fine arts and crafts shows such as the Sugarloaf Craft Festival as well as his online Etsy store.
