Flying Possum Leather LLC creates beautiful, lasting leather goods with a history of quality and commitment to value. We are a proud member of the Fayetteville, Arkansas business community since 1976.





Owner Proprietor Bob Walker took over management of Flying Possum following the passing of his brother Bruce during the tragic fire that claimed his life in 2011.

Since then, a cadre of fellow Leather-Smithers have followed after the footprints created by Bruce Walker's Flying Possum apprenticeship program and public outreach efforts helping the beneficial use of leather products distributed through Northwest Arkansas.

Flying Possum has been Arkansas’ home for the finest custom sandals, Walker guitar straps and countless leather goods since 1976.
