About Us


Located in Wasilla, Alaska, Bar 9L Designs was officially established in 2017 and is owned and operated by Steven and Taylor Bader. Every design is hand drawn and tooled by Steven. We are a team working together and we thank you for supporting a small business. 

The name 'Bar 9L Designs' originates from Steven's family ranch in southern Colorado. He began tooling leather because he enjoyed the challenge and unique artistry in the leather craft industry. Taylor has a strong background in western fashion & custom leather.  This industry has it's fair share of blood, sweat, callouses, and yes, probably tears. We love the western lifestyle and are happy to provide our customers with high quality, one of a kind pieces that will last a lifetime.
