About

Evolution Leather started a long time ago in different shops working for other people. Year after year I would make products for other businesses and work under their name. The problem was I didn't have the resources(or the time) to start a shop on my own. Now with the help of a few good ideas and some gentle nudging it has finally evolved into something that is souly mine.

I have over 6 years experience as a blacksmith/leather workers apprentice and at one time was in training to become a competitive jouster. This experience has lead the way for me to start my own shop. I make and create different leather pieces for my customers including items such as Harness and Tack, Leather Purses, Bull Whips, Coozies, Coasters, Book Covers, Belts, Buckles, Portfolio's, Dog and other assorted animal leashes, Knife Sheaths, Gun Holsters(modern and early era), Radio holders, Archery Quivers and Bow Holders,…

If it can be made with leather, I can make it for you. If you need a custom piece, I can create it.

I enjoy my work and the medium of leather as it is a very forgiving material to work with. I like the satisfaction of every piece I create because it is truly "one of a kind." Although I have created duplicate pieces they are never exactly the same as different pieces of leather are never consistent, even from the same hide. It's both challenging and rewarding as the work begins and the final product emerges from the hide.

I look forward to this new opportunity to expand my knowledge in the leather smithing industry and take part in a new era of arts and design with Etsy. Thank you for visiting and without further introduction.
