Ranchlands is a family ranching business that owns and manages cattle and bison operations across the American West. We use traditional methods alongside new ways to take care of livestock and the land, and make many things that we use. Our shop allows us to continue living the lifestyle that we all love.

All of our products are made entirely by hand, with only the best American hides and hardware.



The roots of our shop trace back to a large isolated ranch in Mexico, where Ranchlands founder Duke Phillips was raised. Each month, a saddle-maker would come to the ranch to fix the ranch hands' tack and make any new bridles or reins that were needed. Duke looked forward to this visit every time and began a collection of his own tools that lived in a little leather bag on his saddle which he used to repair anything that broke while out riding.

A Tradition Carried Forward

Move to Chico Basin Ranch

As Duke grew older and began managing different ranches, he always made a space for leather work. When we moved to the Chico Basin Ranch in 1999, we selected the old woodshop for the leather room. Duke started making bags for his three daughters, and then their friends wanted them and their neighbors...and thus the mercantile was born.


Today, our shop still lives at the Chico Basin, and now shares a building with the saddle house. There's a team of women that you'll find in there daily, too, led by Madi Phillips. Each product is inspired by the pieces that we use each day on the ranch. Interns, apprentices and other Ranchlands team members are encouraged to learn leathercraft to fix their own tack and gear, and often spend time after work in the shop unwinding.
