The Art of Leathercraft

High End Custom Leather Products, Created by Dragonthorn


Dragonthorn Leatherworks is a full custom leather shop. I have been working with leather since the late 60’s (I was 14 when I started dabbling), and the company has been around since 1999. We specialize in custom leather products of all types, sizes, designs, etc. A unique advantage in dealing with Dragonthorn is the customer interaction. We firmly believe in giving the customer “exactly” what they want. We do consistently offer suggestions and/or design elements to a current or prospective customer but only as it pertains to how leather is worked and what is possible based on the price level agreed upon in advance between us and the client. So, have an idea? Not sure if it’ll work or how to go about it? Only one way to find out… Let us know what you are thinking and we’ll go from there.


February 22, 2017 – “So”, they ask. “How long will it take you to make (fill in the item here)?” “Looking at about 10 weeks out”, I respond. “WHAT!, how can it take that long”… and so the story goes. It does not actually take 10 weeks to make any given product (depending on what it is). The answer is really quite simple, I am really really slammed. At any given moment I usually have 3-4 projects on the bench and 3-4 paid for and in the queue. Unfortunately (not really), I am a perfectionist. In addition, as all we do is custom leatherwork, there is quite a bit of planning, design and communication between us and our customers. It all takes time. If any of you have additional elves, gremlins, etc. that can help me in the shop do please send them my way. Bear in mind that it’s going to take a while to train them in my way of doing things. Any Elves that have prior experience with Santa will have preference. Or perhaps with that little ole’ shoemaker from the old country. Until then, I am in the shop plugging away and doing my best to stay “caught up”.  DH
