Randy Morris, Master Leather Craftsman
Tucked behind the Wilderness Church just off the beaten path of Hugo's Hill Street lies the Mountain Leather Shop. Home to the finest leather wares and Master Craftsmen, Randy Morris, the shop eagerly awaits guests looking for handcrafted leather pieces.
For Morris, his work is a family legacy. As often found in The City, the talents and craftsmanship of leatherwork was passed down three generation to Randy. The crafter often reminisces of his training days in his grandfather's saddle and boot shop five decades ago. From those fundamental beginnings to his over 20-year career at Silver Dollar City one thing remains true, continuing his family tradition of creating top quality leather goods.
He particularly enjoys the challenge of taking a flat piece of leather and finding the possibilities, adding influencers of current trends and styles. Randy specializes in the personalization of leather. The leather speaks to Randy...the grain, the markings, the coloration...each piece has a story to tell! Using the simple tools of a mallet and assorted vintage stamps, he creates unique pieces of leather art for each customer.
The shop features handcrafted wallets, belts, leather bound journals, bible covers and ever-popular hats. As our shopkeeps like to say, "Don't worry about having an odd sized noggin, because leather molds to the wearer and guarantees a perfect fit in no time!" Hats come in sizes Small to XX-Large, brown or black leather, and wide or explorer brim. They are a practical piece of handcrafted leatherwork that will keep you cool in the summer, dry in the rain and, not to mention, looking rather dapper each and every day. A wide array of apparel can also be found like leather jackets, ponchos, chaps, vests, moccasins and much more in this quaint storefront in The Home Of American Craftsmanship.
