Meet Margot

Margot ‘s passion for leathercraft began as a child through the local Routt County 4-H Program. She continued honing her craft through her college years and into her post graduate life. Recognizing her love for the art, Margot turned to leather working as a full-time profession in 2014.

Inspired by the strong agricultural and ranching traditions and industry of Margot’s hometown in Yampa Valley, CuCu Leather was opened in 2019. The storefront brought the arts of custom leather boots, leather works and repair to the heart of historic Steamboat Springs, Colorado.

Margot’s goal is to carry on the appreciation of this dying art, not only through educating others, but by creating quality custom, functional pieces of art to last a life time. She’s uniquely incorporated her workshop into the storefront where people can view her as she handcrafts every project.

Humbled that there is so much to know about leather and the craft, she will never stop learning and educating all that are willing to learn. As well as help people slip into a perfectly fitted pair of boots, just as she always searched for herself.

Stop by the shop yourself and you just might get to see her creating something beautiful!

    Couldn’t have been more pleased with the work Margot did. I haven’t been in my saddle for 8 years and has been sitting in a shed. I started using it again 2 months ago and had my horse pull up lame. I took my saddle her today and my horse was automatically a 100% better because my saddle was pinching her left side! Thank you Margot for such an amazing job! You are extremely kind and super personable! Couldn’t have asked for a better experience!!!!

    Margot and her team are absolutely spectacular (shout out to Barbara!). If you're looking for Western, Boho Southwestern, Rancher Chic Gear, or the Vintage Wild West, look no further than Haus of CuCu. Margot has *everything*. From amazing hats to fantastic custom made leather pieces and repair (boots, belts, chaps, jackets, bags, and more)... she's got it all. AND MOST IMPORTANTLY she'll even make you CUSTOM boots (yes, that's right, custom... measured to your feet and designed with you along the way)... Can't wait to come back.
