About Us

Did you know that only 2% of the American handbag market is actually made here in the US?* Well, we’re on an artistic mission to fix this!
We are the only online community of bag and accessory enthusiasts, craftsmen, hobbyists, and social media influencers who love leather goods, and thrive on a culture of generosity and compassion.

We’re here to cultivate a meeting place where we can come together and create a community driven economy by supporting each other.

This is the Patreon admin has set up to collect our monthly subscription contributions, which allows us to create the lost art of a trusting community on the internet. We’re asking members for $5/month for our subscription. 

Herder Market is focused on:

1. The discussion of all leather brands with the intention to educate about and encourage people to buy quality North American leather products instead of focusing on branding.
2. Building a real online community and marketplace that thrives on the trust and success of each other.
3. Helping commercial craftsmen/hobbyists to list their soon to launch goods/exclusive projects/handmade leather wares to a target audience.
4. Helping leather social media influencers share their content with a targeted audience.
5. Sustain our group culture of doing regular monthly giveaways for members.

Commercial Leather Brands

If you are a commercial leather brand, and you'd like to work with us please contact me.

Leather Hobbyists

Hobbyists are welcome to list their homemade leather goods or finished leather hobby projects, and learn and grow with other hobbyists and get tips from commercial craftsmen.

Leather Enthusiasts

Enthusiasts may post discussion threads on all Leather Bags/Small Leather Goods in our community, and you will be eligible for multiple leather edc related giveaways on a monthly basis. I will continue to attract new craftsmen and fellow leather lovers to our community with your contributions. 

Social Media Influencers

Instagram/Facebook/Youtube leather lovers are welcome to post their sponsored/hobbyist videos/giveaways on Herder Market to gain exposure to our wide leather audience. There are many people with great camera/prose skills taking full advantage of the fashion marketing industry.

Admin Role

The admin/creator of this community works with a great attention to detail to ensure a safe and interesting environment for members, and will be compensated with your contributions. Head moderators are also compensated for their many efforts with these monthly funds.

Commercial Craftsmen are defined by Herder Market as any company functioning as a legal business, and any hobbyist who has a social media presence, other than on our group. 


Craftsmen/Hobbyist members:


1. Are welcome to make one commercial post per week on Herder Market, one sales post per week, and one ‘feedback inquiry’ to the community per week, which may include a poll, or other market research media tools. If you have multiple items to sell you may list them all in one post, like you are renting space for an event that we are hosting.


2. May offer special discount codes/contests/giveaways within the main Herder Market community at any time. This community was built on generosity, so I will continue to encourage this vibe.


3. Welcome to contact admin to arrange a sponsored post with help from our moderators. The creator of this community has over 10 years of executive retail/product manufacturing experience, and has been sponsored by 7 companies this year for reviews/community feedback.


4. Are invited to join a private club separate from the main community.


Thank you for being a part of our family. We’re here to perform the lost art of community building on the internet by connecting you to a wider leather audience, and providing invaluable real time feedback from expert shoppers to help grow your leather business.

Generosity Tier

Same benefits as an enthusiast, but for every day members who want to contribute more to the community building campaign. By subscribing at this rate you are helping us get to our subscription goal 3x faster than the avg member. ❤️
Goals
18 of 500 patrons
Our first goal is to get 500 monthly contributing members. This will allow me to do a giveaway for $300-400 in leather per month in the private club you join when you become a monthly subscriber, as well as increase our Mod team and launch a small marketing campaign to get us to our next goal of 1,000 monthly contributing members. These funds will also allow me to dedicate a set # of hours to community organization and building for Herder Market, and pay for group expenses like contest shipping.
