\ THE STORY /
Common Deer was founded on the idea that
everything is better with a bit of character.
Whether it's a salvaged leather strap,
a fancy trinket from another era,
or simply the reason why a craftsman got started.
Quality goods tell a story.
We're obsessed with the narrative behind all of our products -
who made it, how it was made, where it was made, and why.
Focusing on American Made and small batch manufacturing,
Common Deer showcases craftsmen and companies who are chock full of character and are driving our country forward.
Buy what matters. Buy what lasts.
