Working out of a rural schoolhouse next to his farm in Stouffville, Ontario, he built his business by offering only the best leathers, and he soon became a go-to resource for top-notch clients. In the 1980s, Spinneybeck moved to a converted stable in Niagara Falls, New York, where it continues to be headquartered today. The Spinneybeck Cowhide Rug is a very large premium hide from Italy.
