Sweetgrass Leather and where it comes from
Welcome to Sweetgrass Leather! My name is Meggin Cline, and I live on Wheeler Creek Ranch with my husband Sky and our two babies, Rio and Creek.
I have always had a major appreciation for leather. The smell, rich textures and particularly the raw one of a kind look. I started with leather at a very young age, making regalia and small wearable pieces. It was a few years ago that I made myself a buckskin fringe purse. Strangers would stop me to ask where I got it, that’s when I decided to start making them!
I’m often asked, what does “Sweetgrass Leather mean?” or “what is the symbol that is burned on every bag?”. As I get older, things really fall into place, right where they are meant to be. Everything in my life is good medicine! There is a meaning to all of it! This is what Sweetgrass Leather means to me..
My husband's name is Skylar, Sky for short. He is my Sky, my whole soul. Rio my daughter, she came to me in a dream years ago, I named her there and then when we found out we were having a baby, I knew it was her! Our dreams are medicine. Sage, her middle name, is one of our sacred medicines, for healing and clearing space for living ceremony. She was gifted to me for clearing space in my life at the time, as a living ceremony! Sweetgrass is another sacred medicine, our mother earth's hair used for protection and healing! It’s one of my absolute favorable scents!
I brand each one of my handcrafted bags with the Sunrise C symbol, it is our brand that stands for Cline at Wheeler Creek Ranch!
Thanks for reading and learning a little bit about me!
