Located in Virginia, Bear Creek Leatherworks is a one-man shop run by Mike Bramblett.
I specialize in small leather goods, Creating a high quality product using only the finest materials, modern designs and traditional methods. All products are time tested by me.
I put a lot of time into crafting each item, and therefore it only makes sense to choose the very best leathers for my work.
I work primarily with vegetable tanned leathers from America, Italy, and France. Each type of leather I offer is among the finest of its kind. They look, feel, and smell great and age wonderfully. More information about the specific leathers I use can be found here.
I’ve spent the last 10 years and countless hours perfecting my craft, experimenting with different leathers and testing product designs. A great deal of time is put into every item that leaves my shop.
Every piece is hand stitched using waxed thread to ensure durability and a fine aesthetic.
All edges are beveled and burnished by hand.
‘Creating products that I want to own’ has always been my approach to designing leather goods. I personally design, test and test again all of my products. I also offer Customization for my clients that are looking for a personal touch or a special design.
