New in-store: Blackrock Leather 'N Rich

Posted by Michael Stricklin on

We just started carrying Blackrock Leather's Leather 'N Rich Leather conditioner after meeting the current owner, Thomas Angelo, last september at an event.  Traditionally, we've always stuck to oil to condition our goods, so we were amazed by the results of Blackrock's Leather 'N Rich. 
Blackrock has a unique formulation that is colorless to enhance all leather tones, is easy to use, and economical. The genuine carnauba wax wipes easily to a shine. It cleans, nourishes, and beautifies all finished leather, and colors to a rich mellow glow. We love this conditioner, and recommend using it on any of our leather goods. Just see what they did to my personal Red Wing boots:
Blackrock's Leather 'N Rich is available online here and in our retail store.
Check out their his story in his words below:
"In 1976, my grandfather and a few friends decided to band their talents together and open a small shoe repair store adding a few boots to sell. They named it Christian Brothers Western Store. Their first store was a small shop on Derby Street in Pekin, Illinois. Along the way, they added western wear and leather goods and grew from their humble beginnings to have six retail locations throughout Illinois.

At the same time, my grandfather created a leather care product naming it Blackrock Leather N Rich. He started selling it in Christian Brothers with every pair of boots they sold. The demand for Blackrock grew and soon it was being sold all over the United States as a proven alternative to soaps, oils, water repellents, and other conditioners.

Along with the help from my family, I'm lucky to be carrying on what was started by my grandfather. I have vivid childhood memories of filling jars and shipping orders in the back of his western store.  
Not much has changed because we proudly make Blackrock the same way my grandfather did, using the same formula. Blackrock is made in small batches right here in the U.S.A. to ensure it is of the highest quality standards. Blackrock is not mass produced in a factory somewhere. When we make Blackrock there is no cutting corners. "
