Story and Background
Liberty Leather Goods started with a curiosity for knowledge, learning, and growth. Its founder, Dan Concord, was looking for a new hobby. While exploring different ones, some were very complex, others required expensive, specialized tools, and others large amounts of dedicated workspace. Then, he found leather working.
It was simple, required just a few tools, and yielded truly useful items that could last a lifetime. The leather smelled great, and the skills used to make great projects could be refined and developed over time. What a fun challenge! I was game to try it, and did.
Then, my search for knowledge began. What tools should I start with? Why one instead of another? What does that name even mean?? 🙂 There was SO much to learn. I thought, “as I’m learning these things, maybe some other folks have the same questions and are looking for the same information. And maybe I can sell some goods to folks that would rather buy than craft, and want trusted, quality goods.”…
So I typed up my notes and put them onto this website, just to be helpful to fellow crafters, if anyone was even interested.
As it turned out, they were very interested! I was grateful to be able to offer something educational and truly helpful to others. So as I learned more, I posted more, and Liberty Leather Goods grew into a successful studio and provider of educational resources that help teach leathercraft.
It covers all sorts of topics including leather goods, tools, leather types, techniques, recommendations, insights, guides, tutorials, and stories about the craft.
Today, you can fill sports stadiums with the number of crafters and readers that have come by for a visit to read and learn about leathercraft. It makes that early vision a true pleasure to see come to life, and share the joys of leather working with others around the world.
So, welcome to Liberty Leather Goods. Hopefully you find it helpful, insightful, inspiring, entertaining, and fun. Always feel free to reach out if you have questions or just want to say hello.
