My interest in artisan made products came from growing up on a Colorado mountain ranch. Back then we made many of the things we wanted including holsters, belts, and many more things. I learned to work with and tool leather when I was a child and have been involved in the craft much of my life. An amusing fact is back then we even made hinges for a small door from leather when we had no metal hinges. I later relocated for my hi tech career out in the country on the Front Range east of Colorado Springs, Colorado but recently moved to the Western Slope of Colorado out of Cedaredge.
I saw a need for quality cases, holsters, purses, billfolds and accessories that one can’t find in a store. I hope to fill that need for you. My products are all handmade by me one at a time with quality materials. Yes, my prices are higher than some but that is because my products are made of a much higher quality of leather and attention is paid to detail. I have been told I make functional, wearable art. My leather products will last a lifetime if taken care of compared to sheaths and cases that fall apart every 6 months. I have new designs coming out often. I also make a limited amount of jewelry and art related products. Some items like holsters and cases can be custom made with your brand or hand painted and I welcome you contacting me to see if I can design something you will love. I am also an artist and you can see my fine art at: patslossartist.com I am an award winning artist and have been featured in Who’s Who of American Women and Who’s Who in the West.
