About Us



Born & raised in Southwestern Ontario, Pat & L.A. are a Hamilton-based husband & wife team offering hand stitched leather goods & custom metal fabrication.

A welder by trade, Patrick began making furniture pieces for his own home, and one long winter he began making leather pieces to keep busy over the cold winter months.

L.A. stepped in to manage the marketing, social media & business relations, and after exhibiting their product publicly for the first time at a local MKRS MRKT in summer, 2014, The Black And Tan Trading Co. (BATTCO) was officially born.

The RELATIONSHIP they build with their CUSTOMER IS IMPORTANT AND a VALUED PART OF WHo THEY Are.

“THATS THE BEST PART OF THIS WHOLE THING, THE LOOK ON THEIR FACE WHEN THEY SEE THE ITEM FOR THE FIRST TIME, THE ITEM THAT THEY HAD ONLY ENVISIONED A SHORT WHILE BEFORE, CREATED JUST FOR THEM, ONE THAT THEY’LL HAVE FOREVER … THAT’S EVERYTHING TO US"

"While we spend a lot of time with our kids and have roles that demand our time during the week, all of our spare moments outside of this are spent DEVOTEd TO The Black And Tan Trading Co.
