Gerhard van Seventer founder of Stampede Leather has been involved with horses since the age of five.
As horseman and leather crafter, with fifty years of experience,
it comes natural to produce tack and equipment for family and friends.
In 1986 he found the S. A. Leather Crafter's Association and
assisted in writing a book on
judgment criteria for leather crafter's.
In 1987 the decision was taken to establish Stampede Leather
as a family business.
In 2000 the business was so well established that the
family also bought one of the oldest Saddle manufacturers
in the country, Berman’s Leather.
Today we are one of the most successful leather product manufacturers in Southern Africa and across the world.
