We started Holtz Leather Co. after suffering some of the lowest points in our life. In short, over the course of five years we suffered four miscarriages, lost our business, our home, and nearly became homeless. Through this time of extreme humbling God taught us that life is more than the things we acquire or the titles we have.
Holtz Leather is more than just a brand or small business. It’s about family, hard work and the things that matter, just like the way things were done in great-granddaddy’s day. This generation taught their sons trades and that the family name meant something. They retold stories of the sweat, tears, and blood their kinfolk sacrificed to keep things going. They were never too busy to help a friend in need.
My hope is that I can start a rebirth of this old generation. I teach my young ones the importance of hard work, commitment, and the gratification that comes when you do your best. I wish to use every moment as an opportunity to teach the lessons of life as we work side by side. I want to teach them that life brings both good times and hard times, and how family is critical to it all.
