Fast facts about Okabashi and our hometown of Buford, Georgia:

  • We are located just 40 miles northeast of Atlanta, Georgia.
  • In the early 1900s, Buford became widely known for its leather production and earned the nickname: “The Leather City.”
  • Buford has a long footwear legacy: A large shoe factory operated there until 1941 and reopened to serve the military during World War II.
  • Buford’s leather industry ended after the tannery experienced a fire in 1981 and the facility was not rebuilt.
