About MacClay Leather
MacClay Leather Design is a small family owned and operated business dedicated to designing and producing original, fine quality, handcrafted leather products in Lancaster Co., PA.
How it Started
It all started in the summer of 1972 with two friends living in a tent, tooling and staining leather on a picnic table. They soon opened their first leather shop. Out of those humble beginnings, Clay Rosenbarker has emerged a master designer craftsman in leather. Four retail stores and a small leather craft studio later, his designs were outselling anything they could buy for their stores.
In the early ‘80’s Clay began exhibiting his original designs in some of the country’s best juried craft shows. In 1985 he sold his retail stores to focus on producing his craft. He opened a leather craft studio in East Petersburg, PA, where he continues to design and produce his work today with the help of a small staff of dedicated craftsmen. He markets his work through the studio store, at fine art and craft shows, and on the internet.
