I opened Tanner's Alley Leather Design Studio in 1976 because I loved working with leather and wanted to offer my services to the community. Since my hometown, Morgantown, West Virginia, is home to West Virginia University, there is a great need for satchels, book bags, backpacks, and travel bags. Over the years, I have developed a group of handmade leather products to serve these needs. All these items have been "field-tested" for years by both students and professionals. I am happy to report that our products have been used around the world as our regular customers report to us their many adventures.
