Thanks for visiting my website! Keeton Leather is located in Knoxville, Tennessee and offers a wide variety of handcrafted leather goods, repairs, and leather care supplies. Please browse my site for examples of my work and also consider following me on social media for updates.
I am Rob and I have been a leathercrafter for over 25 years. What started as a hobby became a side business during my college years. After many years of focusing primarily on gun holsters, I decided to grow my skills to cover a wide selection of personal leather goods. Being self-taught, my skills have developed through a lot of reading and trial-and-error. I took my business full-time in 2020 and opened my first storefront in fall of 2021. Since that time, I have had the opportunity to make or repair a unique variety of items, some of which have really challenged me to learn new skills. In March 2022 I moved to my larger shop and began to offer items for sale at the Southern Market Shops and area shows. I continually strive to improve my skills and my goal is to become one of the premier leathersmiths in the country. I welcome you to contact me with any questions you have about my work and I am always happy to discuss your ideas for a one-of-a-kind item.
In addition to being a full-time leathersmith, I am a parent of two awesome boys. I enjoy watching baseball, listening to music, learning to play the guitar, and spending time on the airwaves as an amateur "ham" radio operator. I also have two of the coolest dogs ever and I regularly have them crashed out nearby while I go through my day. Lastly, I am a meteorite collector and secretary of the Global Meteorite Association.
I welcome your questions and comments. I try to answer messages in a timely manner, but if you have not received a reply, please feel free to follow-up.
