Our Photo Gallery
Maybe it’s because we make leather in small, custom batches. Or perhaps it’s because our leather is drum-dyed to any of the 18 brilliant colors we offer. Or maybe it’s because we just genuinely love leather! We’re always happy to talk to you about your hide and to make recommendations on how to bring out its best features.

Our photo gallery shows only a small sampling of the leathers we produce. Our leather is completed with a clear polish that will develop a silky finish, enhancing the unique attributes of each leather type. Your finished hide may be suitable for boots, clothing, handbags, upholstery, and more. We are happy to refer you to experts who will work with you on your special projects.

At Specialty Leather, we have been creating beautiful leather for more than 20 years. We pride ourselves on turning rough hides into quality leather that lives on in a different form for generations. While nothing replaces the actual feel of a lustrous gator strap or a sensationally soft elk hide in one’s hand, these photos will give you a glimpse into why we love what we do.

Please send us a photo of what you create with our leather! We’re always happy to see our customers’ projects and would love to display them in our gallery.
