Our Story

 

I began the art and craft of handmade leather goods in 2003 when I moved to Brown County, Indiana where I began working alongside my mother at Moonshine Leather Company.  The owner became my mentor for the next several years.  It was at this time I was able to develop my own taste of product line in the leather industry.  I found that designing belts initially became something I could personalize with my own creativity.  As I gained more experience in the craft of leather making I was given the opportunity to manage Altai Leather Designs in Jerome, Arizona in 2006-2008.  In 2008 I decided to move back to Indiana to be near family and start a  leather business called Lilypistol Leather that travels across the midwest participating in art festivals rather than having a traditional store front retail space.  As owner, I strongly believe in things made in the USA.  So I work hard to purchase all of my leather and manufacturing supplies from companies here in the states. The goal with every single product is to to carefully create it in a way that suits the customer's lifestyle in a functional, practical, durable and artisic way.
