In the third largest Amish settlement in the United States, tucked away on a back road near Shipshewana, Indiana, you’ll find a great little leather workshop called Silver Star Leather. The owner, Loren Yoder, started out by making bridles and gear for the local Amish community. He moved on to belts and wallets, and after a spell his wife, Dorcas, got into the game by designing her own line of luxurious purses and handbags. Recently they built a new storefront where you can watch Loren and his crew as they create a myriad of quality leather goods from plain old cowhide and an array of exotic hides like elephant, alligator, sting ray, and even frog!
