When it comes to developing handcrafted leather goods, the designers behind Bear Creek Leather draw inspiration from family members. “Most of our products have been created with a family member in mind to suit their needs, and we will often name our patterns after them. From the first concept to design and actual production, the whole family is involved.” Doug Childers got his start as a one-man shop making holsters, then expanded into totes, leather jewelry, and other products. Along the way, his wife, Betsy, and son and daughter-in-law, William and Angela, joined the business. “We love seeing what our customers come up with to make it personal,” Doug says. Based near New Braunfels, this family business feels at home in the Hill Country. “We love the small towns and all the sights,” he says. “You can catch us enjoying a schnitzel or a pork chop on a stick every year at Wurstfest.”
