Welcome to Annie's Leather
My name is Leanne Carl and I was born and raised in Rapid City, South Dakota. I began working with leather in high school, but wandered away from this craft after graduating. My husband, Fred and I hunt and believe in never wasting any part of the animals that are harvested. We have had most all our hides tanned into leather and that is how I came back into the world of leather art.
I utilize many types of leather now, not just the ones we hunt – deer, elk, buffalo, and various types of cowhide. Each article is individually created and handcrafted by me. I personally design, sew or hand-lace every item to create a one-of-a-kind piece of “functional” art.
