Leather goods are made of Horween Leather from Chicago, Illinois or other domestic tanneries. Selvage canvas, denim, and chambray come from Cone Denim of Greensboro, North Carolina. All the hardware we use is sourced from Weaver’s Leather out of Mt Hope, Ohio.
Americana Dry Goods also offers pieces of Americana that have been carefully “picked” from all over the nation by Shaun himself. When he is not handcrafting goods, he is out on the road “picking.” He focuses on items that represent the American worker. From the work clothes they wore to the weekend gear of the family camper. His goal is to bring back the life of the American Worker and offer goods that are American made.

Shaun also focuses on honoring America’s heritage as the Chef de Cuisine of Soby’s New South Cuisine in downtown Greenville, SC. In 2010, he took his commitment to heirloom ingredients to the next level by establishing Soby's Farm at Dark Hollow, an ambitious project that raises produce from the Slow Foods Ark of Taste list for use in the restaurant. The Ark of Taste, a collection of food items in danger of extinction, promotes and protects the vibrant flavors of American ingredients, and by growing these items for Soby's, Shaun is assuring that the restaurant will be able to offer dishes that honor culinary history.
