ABOUT US

Welcome to Coastal Hillbilly Leather Goods!

Coastal Hillbilly is a family business out of a workshop near the beach.  Our work is influenced by high fashion, timeless craftsmanship from the mountains, as well as rustic simplicity of the back woods.

In 2015, Robin Manning started with a basic Bernina sewing machine, waxed thread, and some leather carving tools at the kitchen table.  Of course, now the setup is much better by having a full workshop, some high powered sewing equipment, and a couple extra helping hands.  Producing high quality leather goods for our customers is what we love.        

American sourced leather is our leather of choice.  All bags are made by hand in Wilmington, NC.
