The Leather Works Minnesota Story

Leather Works Minnesota started in 1999 out of a garage just outside of St. Paul, MN. From the beginning, the dream was to start a company that would inspire a return to the American Made ethos. Every single one of our items is hand made and inspected at each step in the process. From cutting and imprinting, to piecing, sewing, and burnishing, our team of skilled leatherworkers to create leather goods that will last a lifetime.

At Leather Works Minnesota, we carefully select only the finest materials for our products. We source our leather from heritage tanneries like S.B. Foot (1872), Tennessee Tanning Company (1946), and Weaver Leather (1973). We assemble everything with nylon thread that provides a durability matching that of the leather. We are truly proud of every single product that leaves our shop.

Meet The Team

Leather Works Minnesota is owned and operated by husband and wife team, Kent & Lee Begnaud.

We do what we love, strive to be outstanding, and continue to Fight the Good Fight.
