About Us

Every item we sell is made to order, with the exception for the items available in the Custom Shop. The standard turn-around time is currently 1-2 weeks. We ship all orders at the time of completion via USPS Priority Mail.

Built With Soul was established at the request of friends and family that wanted access to the work I was doing and wanted to help support my need to create. Built With Soul is not a full-time business, but with your support, who knows what the future might be! Each of our items is 100% handmade. The machinery is used during our process. 

Each of the items available here are 100% handmade. perfection is what I strive for, but it is not uncommon for each piece to have some "character." The leather goods offered here are artisan products. They are not a mass produced, store bought, made in a factory located far-far-away.

If I am not happy with the product, it doesn't get sent until I am. I would certainly not expect anything less.


About the Maker

I am life-long creative, that is a professional graphic designer and marketing professional. A US Army Veteran, I am one that likes to keep his knuckles in the grass, I love all things that are handmade. My journey to leather started 27 years ago when I visited my wife's family in Trenton, Mo. While on that trip, I visited the family saddle shop, and that smell never left me. Truth be told, my wife's family own s the oldest saddlery in the USA. The Veach Saddlery in Trenton, Mo has been handcrafting saddles since 1919.

Outside of leather, I am a Harley Davidson addict. I am known to have "Several" projects in the fire, with most being Shovelhead and Sportster choppers and customs.
