The Look Of Leather

When Kent Begnaud’s previous employer outsourced manufacturing to China, Kent was able to pick up a load of leather production equipment for pennies on the dollar. He and his wife now operate Leather Works MN out of the Tilsner Artist’s Co-op in Lowertown, St. Paul. It’s a definite upgrade from their previous workshop in their garage. Business is now booming: their belts, wallets and other goods have caught the attention of Martha Stewart and Northern Grade Market.
