Hi there! My name is Nate, and I am the head craftsman behind Lost Dutchman Leather, and a lover of coffee. I was born in Toledo, Ohio but have been living in Mesa, Arizona since the summer of 2017. I got into leathercraft as an early teen as an antidote to boredom and I fell in love with it. I spent countless hours watching video tutorials and refining the many techniques involved in the crafting process. In 2016, I opened an Etsy shop and started selling my work. People began buying, and I kept making, and here I am! I love what I do and am so thankful to those who have supported what started as a hobby and eventually grew into the business it is today.
