Each coat rack that we make here at McKittrick Valley is a unique piece of art that is deeply steeped in the history of Wisconsin's agriculture. These coat racks are made with genuine rustic tobacco lath. Since the 1800's Wisconsin has been one of the leading producers of tobacco in the United States. Tobacco is a very labor intensive crop from the seeding, planting, hoeing, harvesting, hanging and stripping. For many it was a family affair with everyone from young to old helping the family during tobacco season. Tobacco was the crop that allowed many small farms to continue to exist by giving them an extra income source to keep the farm running.

When the tobacco was harvested a thin slat of wood, called LATH, was used to hang the tobacco leaves in the tobacco sheds to cure. Most of these pieces of lath have been around for over 100 years and hold a lot of memories within their grain. With the decline of the tobacco industry in the state of Wisconsin, the old sheds are full of these pieces of wood just waiting for someone to utilize them again before they rot away.

Our coat racks are made with 100% authentic aged tobacco lath. These lath were rough cut and through their century of use have developed a natural beauty unrivaled by any machine cut wood you can buy today.

Each piece is truly unique in and of itself which makes this a really fun product to create. Each time I make one I truly believe that "this one has to be my favorite so far."

Don't miss out on your chance to own a piece of history and display it proudly in your home. Pass it down through your family and give this beautiful tobacco lath a chance to live on for another 100 years!

Thank you for shopping McKittrick Valley. We look forward to exceeding your every expectation.

Here is a link to an article about the history of tobacco farming in the county where I grew up. Note the pile of tobacco lath behind the two farmers pictured!

*These coat racks are made to order and will look similar to the picture above. Since we do not add any stain to the wood and only apply a clear coat to bring out the natural beauty, color variations will exist.

*This wood is old, some near 100 years. Imperfections such as cracking, chips, dents, missing knots are not excluded from the work as they add to the rustic character of the piece and are welcomed addition that help tell the story of the wood.

*Each coat rack measures about 6" high and length is selected by buyer.

*If you have a preference of color, Lighter or Darker, please make a note with your order and we will do our best to accommodate you.

*Each coat rack has two mounting holes drilled at 16 inches on center(See Note Below). We do not include mounting hardware. If mounting on studs, we recommend using 2.5 to 3 inch screws. If mounting on a hollow wall, we recommend using a toggle bolt anchor. If you prefer to drill your own mounting holes so you can match them up with your studs, please make a note with the order and we will not predrill the holes. ***Coat Racks 60 inches and larger will not have mounting holes pre-drilled. For most secured mounting, please drill your own through the coat rack so that they directly line up with your studs***

We absolutely love this towel rack in our newly remodeled master bathroom! Shipping took a little longer than expected but it was worth the wait.

It’s a lovely coat hook! I’m late to reviewing because I wanted to show a pic once we hung it up. But we haven’t done this yet. The quality is way nicer than I had expected. We ended up going with the white color and it will fit perfect for where we want it to go. It’s a nice rustic heavy coat hook, also different. It doesn’t look like a carbon copy of one you would buy a store or a cheap one on Amazon. It original and so nice! I’m happy with it and recommend this.

I had this coat rack sent to my daughter and her husband for their new house. They love it! She said it is very sturdy. I didn’t have holes drilled because they needed to decide the placement and then drill where it would match the studs. What I especially liked about the hooks was that they were not too close together. Every other rack I looked at, the hooks were only a few inches apart. And that is too close when you have heavy winter coats.
