 Hello everybody! My name is Dave Anderson 
  Welcome to my braided leather web site. This is a one person show - I am the owner/ operator/ leather worker/ web site builder/ floor sweeper/ etc. of it. :)  I have been braiding leather goods in Northern Minnesota since 1972. Everything on this website is made in the USA (by me) and all of the leather used is non-toxic and tanned/made in America. 
 I build a variety of things, but certainly not just everything/anything. Everything in here is truly handmade, no electricity is used in its construction. Patterns that I have designed are laid out and traced, holes are punched one at a time, laces are cut and then it is braided together. Any sewing used is done by hand. Handbags and vests have been my "bread and butter" over the years. Initially, I sold my goods at art fairs, then to craft shops, but, now I do mostly custom work. 
 Nothing in here has a lining. These products are very durable and would far outlast most any lining I would put in them, so I have never felt the need to line them. 
 The pictures are of projects that I have made for other people and have collected over the years. They cover only a fraction of the things that I have built, perhaps they'll be a seed for something you might like. I encourage you to take a look at my guest book entries and read some of my customers' comments about my work and the leather that I use - some comment about pieces they've owned for over thirty years. 
  If you have any questions or you would like to order something to purchase you can email me at andlea@paulbunyan.net or dave@andersonleather.com. My home address and telephone number are at the bottom of each page. The web site is designed and maintained by myself. Please let me know about any improvements or corrections to it that I can make. 
                         I thank everyone for their visit.  ...Dave
