Dustin not only bridges traditional leatherworking techniques with contemporary design, but passes on the fine art of leatherwork by offering classes and workshops.
"Old World Bellies have a classic look that only Veg-Tan can give. The color is great and they burnish really well. This leather is suitable for geometric stamping and lining projects." - Dustin Loftis, owner of The Dusty Hide Leather Co.
"I use Eco-Flo® Tandy Neat-Lac because it keeps color where I want it and stops color from seeping into the leather where I don't want it. It pairs perfectly with Fiebing's™ Antique Paste. My tooling has a more dimensional look and feel when I resist with Neat-Lac vs other products I have used!"
- Dustin Loftis, The Dusty Hide Leather Co.
