About Us

Howdy, I’m Tina!

I'm a wife, mother, and grandmother! I have a soft spot for chips and queso, enjoy cheering for my favorite football team, and absolutely treasure moments spent with my family! Crafting and creating have always been my go-to activities with my kids and grandkids. Back in the day, as a young mother, I relished doing arts and crafts with my little ones. Fast forward to 2012, my husband and I ventured into the world of crafting finished leather goods, selling them on Etsy and in bookstores! Because why stop at creating memories when you can craft them into something extraordinary? 🌟👩‍👧‍👦💖

As we delved into the world of leatherwork, it dawned on us that traditional methods demanded pricey tools and years of expertise for mastery. Lo and behold, through a series of trial and error, I cracked the code – common crafting tools could be the unsung heroes of leather crafting, making it more accessible, fun, and downright delightful! With my husband, kids, and their better halves, we birthed Hometown Leatherworks as a vessel to spill the beans on our leatherworking revelations and sprinkle the joy of crafting with everyone. Get ready for leather crafting like never before – it's a whole new ballgame of creative awesomeness! 🎨🔨🌟

We kicked off this family venture with a simple mission: to make leather crafting as easy, breezy, and fun as a Sunday afternoon nap. Our do-it-yourself leather kits aren't just about crafting; they're about diving headfirst into the joy of trying something new. Because why settle for mundane when you can DIY your way to extraordinary? 🛠️🎨😄

All our leather kits bring the trifecta of fun, ease, and a splash of wonderful experiences to your crafting table. They're not just kits; they're passports to creating and weaving meaningful connections with your family and friends through the art of leather crafting and designing. Because when life hands you leather, why not turn it into a masterpiece and a memory all in one? 🎨✨👨‍👩‍👧‍👦

All our leather products are proudly American-made by our hometown artisans, because nothing says quality like a touch of hometown love. Each and every one of our creations is crafted from 100% full-grain leather – the VIP of the leather world, promising you years of enduring style. Just like us grandmas and grandpas, our leather products age like champions, getting better with time😜. So, pick your leather potion, and here's to hoping your creation brings you joy for a lifetime – it's not just a product; it's a legacy in the making! 👜🎉

We never saw it coming – the birth of our family business, but leather crafting and creating has helped bring our family closer together and feel at home no matter where we are. Most importantly we hope that our leather products help you feel a sense of home no matter where your own unique journey takes you 

With love,

Hometown Leatherworks – May your journey always lead you home. 🏠👜💖
