John R. Craighead Leather Holster Sets

John R. Craighead Leather Holster Sets
The year 1876 was the beginning of The John R. Craighead company and the state of Colorado. A few years earlier gold was discovered in our mountains and the rush began. ‘Pikes Peak or Bust’ was the slogan on the wagons heading west.
Johns great grandfather heard that saddle makers were in short supply. So he moved his family west and opened a small shop. He was soon making harnesses, gun belts, holsters and chaps, as well as saddles. The customers kept coming back because his quality and workmanship was the best.
Four generations later the ranchers and cowboys are still our customers. But for the last fifty years we have had another customer: the make-believe Cowboy.
The clothing and toys are made of real leather which means greater strength. As our little cowboy plays, the leather becomes soft and supple. It’s no surprise that once the child grows up, these outfits become keepsakes to be handed down to their own kids.
They Were located in Denver. They also offer a full line of children’s leather clothing including chaps, skirts, vests, and gloves.
