About the Maker

Hi, I’m Sara the face—and hands—behind Lemhi Leatherworks. Everything I make is handmade step by step. I design the majority of my work, starting in my sketchbook and moving to a vegetable tanned cow hide.

I started leatherwork a couple years ago and quickly became obsessed! I bought a basic tool set on a whim and kept going from there. I’ve always loved the vintage tooled purses and belts I’ve found at thrift store but it had never occurred to me I could make similar pieces. Now I find myself rushing home from my town job to sit at my workbench.

I live near Lemhi, Idaho with my husband, dogs and horses, and love sagebrush country!! My favorite things to tool are the wildflowers and wildlife around me.

Thanks for following along on my leather working journey!
