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.


January 30, 2017 – Well, another year. Am I still here? Yep. Am I still buried? Yep. Will it ever change? Probably not, however… I am getting ready to make a few changes in my life to give me a good bit more time on leatherwork. I have to say that since moving to the High Country of North Carolina my view on life has changed a good bit. Once you hit over a kilometer in altitude, live in a nice two bedroom cabin with a great fireplace and wonderful companionship (a fantastic girlfriend and two crazy cats for company) things just tend to mellow a bit. Summers never get stupidly hot and winters?, well, I am over a kilometer up, tend to get a bit chilly (that’s where the fireplace, my girlfriend and the cats come in). Planning a new shop on the property at the moment. My shop is currently split between the garage (for dusty work) and the space over it for the clean and major work. Looking forward to spending my days working on leather, listening to good blues and just generally enjoying the Appalachian Mountains. Stay tuned, I’m not going anywhere…  DH
