JDS Leather

Hand tooled leather items, along with leathers of different weights are used along with deer and cow hair hides. Making leather items is becoming a lost art. People might have done it when they were in school 30 to 40 years ago. The art of tooling is not seen that much any more. We do all of our own tooling and sewing of all our leather products. Some pieces need extra support to stand the daily use for 20 to 30 years!

With over 30 years of experience, our family has been working with the highest quality leathers to create beautiful, wearable works of art here in the heart of the Hill Country. From carving to hand painting to sewing and stitching, every part of our work is created in our small shop in Kerrville, Texas.
