We're proud to share with you the story of our Co-Founder, Tyler Jury, who founded a nonprofit that annually bikes 3,200+ miles from coast-to-coast to raise money to end Alzheimer's. This is a cause close to his heart since he has lost both of his grandfathers to this disease.
We founded Clayton & Crume out of our dorm room at Western Kentucky University in 2012. After graduating, we opened our first location in Louisville, Kentucky and haven’t looked back. We’re proud of our Kentucky roots, and that’s why we’re sharing the story of our friends at the LEE Initiative.
When our journey to build a leather goods brand in Kentucky began, we established our mission to handcraft leather goods to the highest possible standard and do so while staying true to our Kentucky roots. How do we remain loyal to those Kentucky roots we were raised on? One word – bourbon.
