Welcome to my shop!
I am a leatherworker living in the middle of the Hot Springs National Park surrounded by forest and mountains. I have been doing leatherwork full time for several years and have a brick and mortar workshop at 761 Park Avenue, inside Prohibition Press.
I believe everybody should only buy what they need, but when they do, get something truly unique that will last forever. There is no reason to take mundane objects with you, when you can take something epic to accompany you on your journeys.
Every project I work on starts with full grain, vegetable tanned leather. I cut it by hand, tool it by hand using a hammer, a swivel knife, and other small tools. I then dye and antique the leather by hand and stitch everything by hand using a double-stitch or a double loop edge braid. Everything is made to last.
I thoroughly enjoy doing viking and celtic inspired art above other styles, and this is clearly reflected in my shop. However, I am always open to new and challenging projects and typically create completely original art for each piece that I make in my shop.
I am a one man shop and I do not have any machines. Everything is made using traditional leatherworking methods and tools. People ask me about my sewing machine, and I show them my hands.
Thank you for taking the time to visit my shop. If you have any questions or business inquiries, please do not hesitate to contact me.
