My name is Michael Hornung and I live in Seattle, Washington. I’ve been working leather since 2007. My interest in leather craft originated from another passion—knife collecting. I found myself with several knives and no quality sheaths in which to carry them! Working with leather opened my eyes to the creative vision and skill that goes into any successful leather project.
I have a Baccalaureate in English Literature from the University of Washington, and I have a day job that has nothing at all to do with leather crafting.
