About Us

Who We Are:

Waterwheel Leather Company is headquartered in Ozark, Missouri. The company derives its name from the working waterwheel found near the family cabin of Waterwheel Leather Company owner John Seawright. 


John’s father, an accomplished architect, included him in several design projects and instilled in him a love of geometric and stylized patterns. This love was furthered by his discovery of the designs of Frank Lloyd Wright.


Through his designs, John has been able to combine his inspirations into attractive, innovative and highly practical pieces. 


What We Do:

Waterwheel Leather Company provides handmade leather goods manufactured one at a time in Missouri to customers around the world. 


We create  leather bags, leather journals, and other leather goods of the highest quality.  All of our products are sourced and made in the USA.
