The Art of Leathercraft

High End Custom Leather Products, Created by Dragonthorn

About

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. 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.

February 18, 2015 – Man, who would have thought that cold weather could cripple the south like it did. I know, I know, you’ve got it much worse up north and out west and more used to it. My shop is an outbuilding out behind the house and after returning from Boone, NC (where we are rebuilding a house… was -8 degrees in Boone by the way) I learned that my central heat and air in the shop died! Bummer! Trying to get it fixed but all Heat and Air techs were busy fixing heating issues for houses with people in them and not really important stuff like leather shops! ; ). Finally got a couple of space heaters and now have the shop temperature at 70 degrees. As info, it’s not just the matter of me freezing my butt off but as well the fact that you just cant work leather properly when its too cold. Just checked the shop and temps good, leathers pliable. Killed my production for a couple of days but back on it now…  DH

Automobile Document Pouch

Automobile Document Pouch

The Automobile Document Pouch is a variation on the Document Envelope. My client owns a 2011 Z06 Corvette which has a red exterior with a black interior (He used to own a Mark IV VW R32, my baby). He wished to carry all Vette manuals and such in a more customized manner vs. the binder that came with the Vette. Due to the many manuals and such that are provided with the car we needed to increase the width of the pouch from the standard envelope width of .75″ up to 2″. Due to this is was necessary to use a gusseted side panel vs. the standard stitched sides in order to keep the pouch width accommodating for the glove box. The pouch is made with 3-4oz....

Medium Pipe Bag

Medium Pipe Bag

This is a new/unused medium size pipe bag roll-up. The customer misunderstood her husbands wishes (who actually wanted the large 6 bag pipe roll-up with slots for cigars and a pen). It holds 2 pipes and is wide enough for a Churchwarden or long Canadian. In addition it holds a tobacco pouch, Pipe Cleaner pouch, two Cigars and a Pen (or 3 Cigars). It is made of oil tanned pebbled (bomber jacket) leather and is lined with butterscotch suede. Comes with a carrying handle and a custom shoulder strap. Nice piece. Price is $495.00 plus shipping and handling (normally $25.00 within the continental US).  DH...

Tactical Flashlight Pocket Case

Tactical Flashlight Pocket Case

This Tactical Flashlight Pocket Case was made specifically for a “HDS Systems EDC Rotary Flashlight”. It is shown with my Surefire E2D Executive Defender as the HDS Light is way out of my budget level. The client wished for a case to either pocket carry or belt carry his HDS as in light of its size, although small, was a bit much bouncing around in his pocket. As the HDS light has a rotating bezel to adjust the light throw, I created two scalloped cutouts at the top of the case for easy light extraction and protection from an inadvertent “on” based on the customers request. The leather is 3-4 oz. vegetable tanned leather for better molding...

iPhone 6 Griffin Survivor Leather Pancake Case

iPhone 6 Griffin Survivor Leather Pancake Case

What we have here is a Leather Pancake case constructed to hold an iPhone 6 enclosed in a Griffin Technologies Survivor. You may notice that with many/most cellphone cases coming out today they all have clips of some kind that add an additional 1/2″ to the case thickness once you place it on your belt. The nice thing about pancake cases is that due to the construction they lay very flat against your side. This particular case has been made for an attorney in Manhattan that wished the case to be very simple yet rugged. It is constructed out of 3-4 oz. vegetable tanned leather and is lined with a grey sueded pigskin. It is dyed black with Fiebings Professional Oil...
