Bellevue Saddle Maker a Throwback to Past
Sunday, June 28, 2020

Jack Sept of Bellevue, Idaho, is proud to continue the traditional art form of western leather crafting, which involves tooling, stamping and cutting leather to create shapes and decorative designs for wearable and functional art.

 Jack’s passion for the traditional western lifestyle developed while growing up on Montana and Wyoming ranches around working cowboys, horses, and saddles. At a young age he became fascinated with the history of leather crafting, which dates back over a span of at least 5,000 years. He took his first leather class from legendary saddle maker Don King of Sheridan, Wyo., when he was just 12.

 Today, Jack is a master leather craftsman with over 50 years of crafting under his belt. Join Eye on Sun Valley’s Lori McNee as she takes you into his Bellevue Triangle studio, full of heirloom quality saddles, cowboy gear, hatbands and custom belts.
