Artisan Profile

Clint Wilkinson has become one of the most respected leather artisan's in the United States. From start to finish his products are all made by him in his studio located in Denton Texas. You will notice his work is modern with hints of his deep western heritage, a legacy passed down by his grandfather who was a custom saddle maker.

Each individual piece is carefully crafted in pursuit of perfection using only hand tools. These traditional techniques, which he has perfected over the years, will ensure you're getting a piece of functional art.

The model is centuries old, but has been forgotten by most in the Western world. Master craftsmen and women in France, Italy, Japan, and beyond are keeping the tradition alive in tiny ateliers sought out by faithful pilgrims who long to reintegrate the magic of artistry into their everyday wares.

Clint is re-forging this sacred and time-honored relationship between craftsman and customer  in Denton Texas. A place his family has been for over 6 generations. It's his commitment to serve with dignity and exceptionalism that has gained him the notoriety of producing the finest leather work in Texas.

I had envisioned a different experience when I finally let the public into my personal working space, however I realized that it's going to take time to see my goals come alive.
