The founder of Douglas Leather, Jock Douglas, has served both in the British Army and Australian Army and has many years experience with ceremonial, parade and army leather wear. My father started making military Sam Browne belts and straps as a hobby whilst still in the army. With his army contacts throughout the country he quickly made a great name for himself and was receiving orders from all over Australia, by word of mouth alone. Most customers and friends were extremely happy with the quality and effort put into each product and would specifically comment on the standard of edging, materials used and finishing of the Sam Browne. When my father retired from the army he passed on his knowledge and skills to me, Douglas leather still produces exquisite leather products with the same attention to detail and finished quality product.
A little about our family name, 'Douglas':
Douglas Clan Crest: On a chapeau, a green salamander surrounded by fire.
Douglas Clan Motto: Jamais Arriere (Never behind).
Meaning: Anglicised form of the Scottish surname Dubhghlas, meaning "dark river" from Gaelic dubh "dark" and glais "water, river" Douglas was originally a place name, which then became a Scottish clan name borne by a powerful line of earls. It has been used as a given name since the 16th century.

Jock & Scott Douglas
