Hand Crafted Excellence at Affordable Prices
True leathercrafters producing quality American products are a rare sight today. Joe and Pat White, the expert crafters at Hidemasters have over 80 years of combined experience in producing the highest quality leather products. They pride themselves on the four cornerstones of their products: Quality, Functionality, Durability and Design.
Even with all those years of experience, leather is still just as fun today. Since every piece is hand made and every piece of leather is different, there is still a challenge with every belt that they make. How the stamp goes in, or how the piece takes the dye, is an adventure and makes it fun. You can almost see the enjoyment in everyone of Hidemasters’ finished products.
Pat focuses of the design, stamping and tooling of the leather.
