Overland Sheepskin Co. will open in downtown Fort Worth’s Sundance Square in the Old City National Bank Building, the company’s first Texas store, Sundance Square said Tuesday.

The 4,400 square foot store will be on the first floor, with entrances on Houston Street and 2nd Street facing the Renaissance Worthington Hotel.   Overland was founded by the Leahy Family in Taos, N.M., in 1973 and is headquartered in Fairfield, Iowa.

Its premium apparel products include shearling coats, leather jackets, hats, leather bags and gloves, sheepskin slippers and boots, sheepskin and cowhide rugs, and sheepskin and leather accessories and specialty products.   “Overland has a classic, rich product line that will pair nicely with the other exclusive retailers in Sundance Square such as Leddy’s Ranch,” said Johnny Campbell, CEO of Sundance Square, said.   Construction will begin this month and is expected to be completed in time for the holidays, Sundance said.
