Those are just a couple of the questions you may have asked yourself recently after discovering the launch of Heritage Brand. So, to clarify this recent addition, I thought I would shed some light on the situation for those of you who may be a little confused.
Luan's Leathers has had shops in two locations, Vancouver, WA. and Bend, OR. since 2004. Each shop manufactures their own unique tack lines and products, but we sold them all under one name, website, phone number, etc... So when you would place an order, it would be directed to the appropriate shop where it would be made and shipped. Or, as frequently happens, part would come out of one shop and part from another.
The business has been blessed to grow to a point where it was no longer feasible or reasonable to manage it in this format. And being as it is a family business, our respective lives are in these two states, so merging the business into one location was unfortunately not an option. The solution became to do a name change for our Bend, OR location, thereby making Luan's Leathers, Bend the new Heritage Brand.
Heritage Brand continues to produce many of the same great products as before, including scalloped halters, dog collars, scalloped headstalls and breast collars, inlaid headstalls and breast collars and have recently added many new styles including the DaVinci, Monet, Picasso, Matisse and Van Gogh, plus a whole new style of spur straps, with more new additions in the works. To promote these new lines, you will see us set up at several shows this year, including our recent trip down to Bryan, TX., this weekend in Walla Walla, WA, the NFR in December and several other venues we are scheduling now.
We truly appreciate our customer's loyalty and business over the years, which has allowed our family to create a business doing what we love!
Until next time ~ Jess
