WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF DARK STAR LEATHER

Genuine in-house, hand-cut, hand-made leatherwork is not a lost art.

With distinct design and fine craftsmanship, Dark Star Leather has been known for art with function since 1972. Toyo Gilman (Dark Star Leather owner) and his staff of artisans create unique one-of-a-kind handbags, belts, wallets, briefcases, and other accessories.

From contemporary to traditional Southwestern styling and given the variety of material to work with, the design combinations are endless. All of the hand-cut design work is fashioned from latigo, an oil-tanned cowhide. Other leathers range from soft garment types to classic glazed water buffalo calf to exotic skins such as python, alligator, ostrich, and many others in a variety of textures and colors.

The latigo designs are inlaid primarily with exotic ranch raised skins of snake, lizard, ostrich, alligator, and a variety of suede and other leathers for maximum textural appeal. The focus is on attention to detail... intricate stitching, finely bound edges, carefully set semi-precious stones and sterling silver conchos make each creation one-of-a-kind.

When shopping for yourself or that special someone, think of the lasting beauty of leather.  Distinct design and fine craftsmanship will always be the trademark at Dark Star Leather.
