About Us

lol.. Enjoy the awkward selfie until I get some actual pics of myself… Anyways, Hello! My name is Taylor, and I am the owner of Grow Leather Co.! Honestly, I have no clue of what to say about myself or my business, so I will just start with some random facts about me! 

  • I am married to my high school sweetheart, Garrett. 
  • We have 3 border collies
  • I tend to be kinda awkward and kind of weird (like in a funny good way)
  • During the day I work as a Vet Tech!
  • I live in a valley in Northern Utah, and I love it!

Okay. Now that you know 5 facts about me, let me tell you a little bit about Grow Leather Co. 

I started dabbling in leatherworking back in April of 2021. I had seen a few videos and pictures online of some really cute leather projects and I thought to myself, "That can't be too hard. I can definitely do that same exact thing." So I got started.

But boy, was I wrong. It was much harder than I anticipated. I went to my local craft store and picked up a beginner's set with five tools. I started practicing on a scrap piece of leather and, well, it was ugly. But I was proud of it nonetheless.

I took that practice piece out to my grandpa's house. He makes leather harnesses for draft horses and has been doing so for decades. When I showed him my work, the first thing out of his mouth was, "Well, that's ugly. Try again." I thought his reaction was funny and endearing.

So, I went and bought a few more tools and items to make the process a little easier. And that was that! It's been two years since then, and I'd say that I am getting better with every project. I've learned a lot, and I'm excited to keep improving.
