Trading is a division of North American Fly, Ltd. The
company owner and president, Leland G. Christenson II,
founded North American Fly in 1984. In 1988 the business
moved to Strum, WI. and became known as Strum Hide and
Glove. The company's primary focus was to collect
Whitetail Deer hides from hunters in Minnesota and
Wisconsin. These hides were then sold to various
leather tanneries in the United States.
North American Fly Ltd. began sending deer hides
directly to tanneries in Mainland China. The company
then started importing several different styles of
deerskin gloves for distribution in the United States.
Currently, North American Fly collects and exports over
1 million Deer hides to China annually. Because North
American Fly supplies the tanneries and factories with
such a large volume of raw material, very important
business relationships have been established.
In 2002, North American
Trading was formed as the driving force behind the
importing and mass marketing of the Deerskin and Elkskin
gloves that the company sells to distributors and
retailers in the United States. The product
selection has been expanded to include styles for work,
hunting, dress, casual, motorcycle, and winter sports.
It is North American Trading's goal to provide their
customers with the highest quality gloves and customer
service available, at the lowest possible price
