 leather braiding by Dave Anderson 
 since 1972 
 Hello everybody! My name is Dave Anderson -   Welcome to my braided leather web site. 
  Anderson Leather Braiding 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 handmade in the USA (by me) and all of the leather used is non-toxic and tanned/made in the USA.  I build a variety of things, but certainly not 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 through this web site. 
 ​
 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'd like made. 
​ 
 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.
