Welcome to Black Dogg Leather! My name is Kai and I have been doing leatherwork as a hobby for about 20 years. All my products are made completely by hand, without any machines, using quality American-made leather and hardware. I use mostly "vegetable-tanned" leather, which means the animal skin has been tanned using the bark of certain tree species such as oak, hemlock or sumac. If you would like a custom made item, please email me with details and I'll see what I can do. Finally, if you're wondering about the shop's name: I love black dogs, especially Labs, and my current one, Miss Sadie (she's in the picture above), is a Lab-Collie mix I got from a local shelter. She's with me almost everywhere I go, including skiing, hiking and canoeing.
