About Schaaf Saddlery & Leather Work
The skill is a family tradition beginning with great grandfather Schaaf, a harness maker from Prussia, that set up shop in Cincinnati. His son followed him in the trade and named his shop the J.B. Schaaf Company. In 1950, Walter took over the business steering the company toward horses and backyard pets. Eventually, Walter renamed the business to Schaaf Saddlery & Leather Work. After many years in business, Walter passed down the company to former employee Darwin Mock. Darwin and his wife Nancy moved the company to where it is now in Hamilton,Ohio.
