TLFA Tandy Leather Factory

Tandy Leather Factory, Inc. is an American specialty retailer and wholesale distributor of leather and leather related products. It operates in three divisions: wholesale leathercraft, retail leathercraft and international leathercraft. Originally part of the Tandy Corporation, Tandy Leather has gone through a series of acquisitions and mergers, eventually being sold to The Leather Factory in 2000. Tandy Leather Factory had over 100 stores worldwide. The Tandy Leather headquarters in Fort Worth, Texas also houses the Al and Ann Stohlman Museum. Tandy Leather began as a family-owned leather goods company based in Fort Worth, Texas in 1919. Norton Hinckley and Dave L. Tandy partnered to start the Hinckley-Tandy Leather Company and concentrated their efforts on selling sole leather and other supplies to shoe repair dealers in Texas. During World War II, civilian leather rationing prompted the company to move towards leatherworking as a hobby, which gave the company supply priority by providing for the armed forces.
