Meet Roy and Ruby…the newest members of the William Brown family

Barb and Bill have been ranchers most of their lives.

Bill is a holster maker. But not just any holster maker…

His specialty is carving leather …creating images that tell the story of another time.

Bill grew up down the road in Bisbee…but decided to make “The town too tough to die”…home.

The William Brown Leather Company helps keep that history alive. You almost expect Wyatt or Doc to walk into this mom-and-pop shop.

In the end…it was the hobby he learned as a boy…that carried him into his future.

Finding someone to do leather work at the level Bill required…was no easy task. There are only about 50 craftsmen in the country.
much of anything else.

The young boy was particularly enamored with the Lone Ranger.

Today Colin Taylor delights tourists with his own rendition of his boyhood hero…spurs jangling along the boardwalk. And the amazing thing? He grew up a long way from the old west.

Well after about 4 years of visiting…and sharing stories…Colin finally made the sale.

And while he may have grown up thousands of miles away in County Durham…his heart was already in America.

After working together for over 6 years…the cowboy and the Brit are silent companions in a backroom workshop filled with their grandfather’s tools. The smell of oil and leather hang in the air like the aroma of fresh brewed coffee.

Bill and Colin copy patterns of chaps and belts and holsters from old movies and use vintage saddle catalogs as guides.

Bill doesn’t call leather carving an art. He thinks of it as a craft…one that he doesn’t plan on giving up any time soon.

He says he’ll be carving till they throw dirt in his face.

This cowboy at heart…will always be at home on the range…as long as he has his wife Barb by his side…his horses and dogs in the corral…and his grandfather’s carving tools in hand.
