The owner of 2M Star Leather Shop, Doug Mahaney, is helping to promote creativity and expansion in the community. “I opened 2M Star Leather Shop in Humble in March 2013,” said Mahaney, owner and craftsman. “We custom make belts, wallets, saddle, bags, purses; if it can be done we can do it.” The leather shop is unique in many ways to the community. “Everything is done by hand; we do not use sewing machines,” said Mahaney. Mahaney got started in the business by working on a ranch and repairing saddles and tack. “I made the choice to establish a business in the community because I wanted to add to the community,” said Mahaney. “A lot of positive growth has been happening in the community due to its fast growing expansion.” Mahaney adds that 2M Star Leather Shop takes time to do things well. “We pride ourselves on the quality of work that we provide to our customers and stand behind what we manufacture and customers get what they want,” he said. While Mahaney said it has been a great feeling to be able to open his own local business, he offers advice to others wanting to open their own business. “It has been great to see the business expand. For upcoming inspiring business owners I would tell them patience is key,” said Mahaney. 2M Star Leather Shop is located at 414 North Houston Ave. The store is open Monday through Saturday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., later if prearranged.
