Rustico's Wholesale Representatives

We love our stockists and want to offer you handmade leather items that are both premium and one-of-a-kind. Our two reps will be working hard to get you what you need to find success and leave your mark.

Learn more about these two members and what they bring to our Rustico family. You may have already had a chance to say hi at a summer shows. 

Here's Jack 🚙 

Where do you call home? Where are you from? 

Home right now is Utah, but I’m originally from Ohio. 

Tell us a little bit about yourself? 

I’m a married man and have been for almost a year now. Her name is Ellie, and she is an amazing, beautiful compliment to me in life. Together, we have a smart little 9-month-old...puppy named Bentley that we love to take on runs and hikes. I’m passionate about my mental and physical health. Although, you could put any amount of Mexican food in front of me and I will eat it. I lived in the Patagonia region of Chile for a few years, and that incredible experience has changed my life forever. 

Describe your new position? 

As the Wholesale Account Executive, I am responsible for the amazing relationships Rustico has with different shops and companies across the U.S. I work hard to keep customers up to date with our ever-evolving products. I don’t sell anything, the products speak for themselves. 

What do you like to do when you’re not working? 

When I’m not working, I’m outside exploring, running, at the gym, or planning for the future. 

What you hope to achieve in your new role?

My goal is to help everyone I contact to enjoy their experience working with Rustico. To do this, I hope to provide generosity and kindness in my interactions. I also hope to be able to get everyone the best quality products into their stores so they can boost sales and have amazing margins. 

Which Rustico journal do you use and why? 

I use the Expedition Notebook for keeping track of my work and personal goals and plans. It is a great size that I can bring anywhere like the gym and access easily. 

Anything else you’d like to share? 

Give me a call with any questions at 1-866-426-4957 x 5289 or jack@rustico.com. I’m happy to help!

Where do you call home? 

Des Moines, Iowa originally. It sounds cheesy, but I think home really is “where the heart is”. I’ve lived in Utah for 15 years but didn’t realize I considered it home until my daughter started calling it home.  

Tell us a little bit about yourself? 

I love to travel, and my favorite travel destination would have to be Roatan, Honduras. I’ve been there in the past to snorkel, and the luminescent water is amazing! I have a wonderful daughter and dog named Rosie, and I am the baby of the family (3 brothers, two sisters). My favorite place I’ve ever lived was San Diego – I loved being close to the beach. And my favorite food is definitely Indian food! 

How did you get into your trade?  

I started in retail with a clothing supplier and then later became a buyer for retail in Chicago. I loved creating relationships with customers and finding unique vintage items from traders all over the world, especially those products that have a soul or purpose. 

What do you like to do when you’re not working?

I usually hang out with friends, run through the canyon, do some yoga or meditate, cook, and listen to lots of podcasts. 

What do you hope to achieve with your new role? 

I’m excited to meet the Rustico “family” - our partners who are brand advocates. The role has so much to do with these people and how their relationship grows with the company; it’s all powered by humans and I’m looking forward to generating more of that “secret sauce” that goes both ways between buyers and our team. Any way I can help, shoot me an email at diane@rustico.com.

What journal do you use and why?

I use the Large Leather Comp Cover with Buckle in Ocean. With Rustico, you can find the journal that’s your “soul journal” that matches who you are, and this is mine. I love the size, it makes a statement that is very clean and modern and looks great contrasted with other shades like Saddle. 

Anything else you’d like to share?

I was always a huge Rustico fan before even working here – I met Isaac (our CEO) during a tradeshow in Atlanta years back.

Hi,
I’m an Internet Retailer.
I own a drop shipping online store. I like to specialize in unique handmade products. I find yours are fabulous. I would like to feature some of them on my website. I put an image of a product on my website with a description and the price.

When someone orders a product of yours from my store I will send to you the shipping info with the agreed price. You then send the item to the person.You will have already gotten paid by this point.
I ask a 20% to 30% discount. It’s a win-win we both gain happy customers that will hopefully buy again and again.

Please Contact me at:lenny@ljbyourhome.com so we can work out a plan on what we will be doing. Dropshipping costs, Shipping, Taxes, etc. I am ready to start as soon as you are. I drop ship all over the world.
I have a registered Company with a DBA and EIN#

Vegetable Tanned Natural Leather

Vegetable Tanned Natural Leather

We are excited to introduce our newest leather color: natural vegetable-tanned. This leather coincides with one of our mantras here at Rustico, which is “leave your mark.” Natural leather starts out as a sort of blank slate on which a unique patina develops based on your individual use.   Natural,...
