Brandon has been doing leather work since he was 10 when he received a Tandy tool kit for his birthday. He gradually added on to his tools and shop. Brandon built chaps out of his dorm room in college and later on set up a small shop in the spare bedroom of the house he was living in the last couple years of college. Baker Leather was opened in Pagosa Springs, CO, in 2014 and moved to our current location in 2018.
Rachael has been tooling leather since the summer of 2015. She quit her job managing a Veterinary Hospital and began working in the shop full time later that year when Winston, the youngest, was old enough to need to start day care. We decided that we would rather raise our boys in the shop than send them to day care. She now does most of the tooling and assists in all other areas in the shop. Now that the boys are school aged, she manages The Ark of Socorro Veterinary Clinic in Socorro and works in the shop.
