Indiana native, Aubrey Fullerton is a modern day renaissance woman. Born and raised in northwest Indiana she grew up fast and learned
that life is created not given. Aubrey is a leather maker, photographer, make-up artist, stylist, lumberjack, handyman, swing dancer, pig lover, motorcycle rider, and mother. She didn’t have a traditional upbringing - creativity, personal expression and a curiosity were burned into her foundation. Aubrey learned the traditional Native American and Mountain Man leather making techniques from her family, and she makes everything in her workshop by hand from handpicked materials. Since Live Free Leather and metal pieces are handmade, each one takes on a life of its own. Owners of Live Free products appreciate the past and present, they’re modern folks with an old soul. They cherish small details and quality-made goods that will last a lifetime.
When asked why she does what she does, Aubrey said "I do it because it's what I know ...making something from nothing out of necessity, that serves a purpose and function … but of course have some character and style. I love leather and metal because it's something that has a story, and that can hold and wear your story."
