How it all began...

We got our start in 2006 when Russ (my dad) retired. My mom told him he'd better find a hobby or else. I suggested he teach me how to do leatherwork (something he had learned and did as a living in the 70's). Since he really had nothing better to do, he obliged.

Once he taught me the basics, my mom then told us we'd better find something to do with all the things we were making...and thus was born "Where Dragons Tread"!

Welcome to Where Dragons Tread! We're a father-son team of leathercrafters. Russ has been working with leather on and off since the mid 70's. Mike has been working with leather since the spring of 2006, after Russ had retired and needed an outlet for his energy.

We focus mainly on Renaissance-era goods, although we certainly dabble in the modern era as well.

Everything we sell is handcrafted by either Russ or Mike.
