Leather Works Minnesota is a Minnesota based premier leather worker. They have been working with leather since the 70’s. I saw them at this year’s Northern Grade in Minneapolis, MN. They handcraft belts, wallets, key chains, bracelets and more. Here they are handcrafting a belt out of a strip of finished leather for a customer. They measured the leather to the customers size right in front of us.
Here Leather Works Minnesota is marking the holes to be punched out. This was a fairly smooth process for them. It was super cool photographing and witnessing this belt come together. One of the coolest things I learned about Leather Works Minnesota is they try and use every scrap of leather for a product. Scrap from belts can be used to make little toothpick holders. I like the resourcefulness out of these guys, that’s truly American.
Within 15 minutes the customer had his belt. He was able to have it fit perfectly to his waist size. They source their leather from Ohio, California and Minnesota. All American Made! If you are in the market for a quality made and long lasting belt check out Leather Works Minnesota.
