The Dragon Leatherworks Mission: The Finest American-Made Holsters; The Best Pistol Training.
At Dragon Leatherworks, our primary goal since we started the company in 2008 was to provide the highest quality, fit, and finish for leather holsters and belts. All too often, shopping on the web ends in disappointment. Products advertised as Made in USA are made outside our borders, with a final production step done Stateside so as to be able to make that claim. Much of the driving factor for the high-volume one-size-fits-many holster makers doing this is simply price, but the key thing that suffers is quality.
On the journey to become the premier maker of elegant American-Made holsters, the Master Craftsman and owner of Dragon Leatherworks, Dennis Badurina, also brought his passion for safety and proper training in handgun use to the business, offering handgun classes to novices and seasoned shooters alike as he brings together his knowledge of holster-maiking with proper shooting technique.
Is a Dragon Leatherworks holster right for everyone?
Of course not. Our custom leather holsters aren't simply a purchase, they are an investment in an heirloom-quality holster that will be around for years to come, to be passed from one generation to the next, and cherished as a lasting testament to the men and women who owned and used it in their lives. Getting, or giving, one of our top-tiered holsters as a gift is the ultimate statement of just how important the recipient is in your life.
Not just high-end custom holsters
The best thing about a Dragon Leatherworks holster, gunbelt, or other finely-crafted leather product is that there is a version suited for every price range, starting at plain leather and running all the way up to exotic skins such as Ostrich, Crocodile, Stingray, Python, and much more. In the relatively short time since its founding in 2009, Dragon Leatherworks has become one of the most recognized leather holster manufacturers in the USA today. Our designs are eye-catching, stately, elegant, and of heirloom quality that will last for generations.

Only the finest gunleather, from plain cowhide to exotic skins.
Holsters that came into being by looking at a need first, finding the solution, then designing the holster to be as visually appealing as possible while doing its job.
All Made in the USA, by hand, one at a time. No mass production. No Chinese partial production with the assembly in the USA so as to claim that it's American Made. No machine assembly using thin, easily collapsing leathers with lightweight stitching. Our stock is heavy leather, ruggedly assembled, designed to last for many years.
Our hand-built, surprisingly well-priced holsters, are made with the ultimate renewable resource: leather. This classic material has been the partner of firearms, carrying and protecting the ultimate self-defense tool that man has created, for over two centuries.
