The Art of Leathercraft

High End Custom Leather Products, Created by Dragonthorn

About

SONY DSCDragonthorn 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. I firmly believe in giving the customer “exactly” what they want. I 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. We have skill sets in all manner of leather products, however, we do focus on “one-offs”. The day may come when we develop a set of products that can be mass-produced, however, when we do I suspect that we will still accomplish all of the work “in-house”  ( I am such a perfectionist that I tend to get a bit nervous when someone else is producing our designs). Check out the “portfolio” and “project images” links on the menu bar above for details.

Examples of Our Work

Going full time!

Now this is going to get scary. I’ve decided to go ahead and take the plunge and make Dragonthorn Leatherworks full time. I’ve been doing all of my leatherwork in my spare time and am ready for a change. I’ve been in corporate for way too many years and honestly just tired of the BS. Going to be working for myself full time now so watch this space. Lots of orders, lots of idea’s. Stay tuned…  DH...

It’s been a tough and busy year

Whew… back in the saddle again as they say. This has been a really busy year for me, both personally and professionally. I am getting ready to take Dragonthorn to the next level of custom leather work and its a job I tell you. Lots of time has been spent on the webpage (on the backend) making it easier to navigate. Much has been done as well on SEO (Search Engine Optimization) so that my page rankings would increase. And you know what?, it worked! Dragonthorn Leatherworks is now back on page one of Google for custom leatherwork. I have now added a Pinterest page, worked on the Facebook page, added a LinkedIn page and a Google+ page. Now I’ve got to find the...

Update to Pipe Bag Orikawa Blog Post

Quick update to the below blog post. Chris at iBriar.com arrived home safely from a grueling 3 days at the show… (I feel so bad for him… NOT!) I miss going to pipe shows but alas, I’m just too buried in the shop! The bags were apparently a big hit. We are now receiving order inquiries for the bags. Chris and I are working diligently to determine changes to the designs that will make them even better and to nail down the pricing. I have also added and instruction sheet on the Pipe Bag Orikawa webpage to give you all a better ideas of how it works. Stay tuned! DH...

New Pipe Bag Debuting at the 2014 Chicago Pipe Show!

As mentioned in earlier posts the new iBriar/Dragonthorn Leatherworks Pipe Bag is being shown for the first time at the 2014 Chicago Pipe today! A lot of work went into this design. Chris Lee of iBriar and I have worked long and hard to bring this very innovative pipe bag design to you. It currently comes in two sizes (medium for 4-7 pipes and large for 6-10 pipes). Check it out on the Dragonthorn Leatherworks web site at this link http://dragonleather.net/pipe-bag-orikawa/ . The two bags debuting at the show are but a sample of the possibilities with this design. Keep checking back as we will be further developing this concept as we go forward.  DH...
