My name is Parker, and I am a leather craftsman from Dallas. I’ve spent the past three years of my life training, studying, and practicing the art of leather crafting by hand. Over this period of time, I’ve become somewhat obsessive in my practice, which inevitably led me to study and many of the English and French styles of leatherwork. I am extremely happy for the opportunity to join an amazing community here at StyleForum, and I look forward to answering any questions you may have.
I am extremely passionate about this craft, and I hope to spend the rest of my days working with leather in some capacity. Recently, I’ve had the opportunity to learn leather craft from an ex-Hermes trained master craftsperson, who spent many years making the Kelly bag. Interestingly, I think that the most important thing I learned from my experience with her was the inherent charm that this type of work should have when crafted well. I hope to share some of that with the guys here on StyleForum.
I’ll be periodically posting recent projects here to give you an idea of the type of work I do. I have patterns for almost everything, but I’m always looking to grow my repertoire. Please reach out if you have any odd orders, especially in exotic skins.
I saw a tissue holder in bicolor alligator the other day, and I can’t stop thinking about it.
Feel free to post questions you have for me below. Please email me directly (firstname.lastname@example.org) for any inquiries or custom requests. I’d be happy to help in any way I can. Additionally, you may visit my website, pierpontleather.com.
