Bohlin was born in Sweden in 1895 and came to America before WWI. He was a working cowboy in Montana and Wyoming. One of the ranches that he worked on was owned by the famous Buffalo Bill Cody. While in between jobs he opened his first leather shop in Cody, WY. He later opened a leather shop in Hollywood, California. Around 1923 he expanded his business to include saddle, spurs and fast draw holsters. Bohlin was known as the saddle maker to the stars. Tom Mix and Gene Autry were among his friends and customers. Bohlin died in 1980." The Bohlin Co. is in business today in one form or another. Shipping in the USA is included.
