About Us

We are a small family business starting out making holster from our closed in back porch.  Formally known as DM Bullard Leather, we have changed to Bullard Leather and moved to Cooper, Texas.  At Bullard Leather, everything is handmade and hand-molded for a perfect fit from Hermann Oak leather (Veg tanned). We believe all quality leather makers use Hermann Oak, as the quality comes from their tanning process. The better the tanning process, the higher the quality of leather.

Leather Colors & Tooling Choices

For all dyed items, it is best to order all the items you want to be dyed at the same time so we can color match. If you order them separately, we cannot guarantee the colors will match. The leather dyes differently—sometimes dark and sometimes light.

*Please note that when the leather is dyed, it does shrink, making the leather a tighter fit. We dye after the holster has been molded and dried. It takes a little longer to break it in, but give it time and you will see results.

Different Leather Holsters

Natural (No Oil or Dye) - This color is great for IWB holsters because it contains no oil or dyes that can stain your light-colored under clothing. Ages to a beautiful golden color.
• Saddle Brown - This is our standard color seen in most all photos on the website and online store. It is an oil finish and contains no dye—just the natural color of leather when it is oiled. It is a great all-around durable finish with little or no maintenance.
• Mahogany - This is a dyed finish. Dyed leather contains pigment, and even though we use a permanent finish, this pigment can still bleed off on light-colored clothing. This color is difficult to distribute evenly over the holster. We try to keep the color light with dying only once, but there could be light spots from where the holster dyed light.
Dark Brown - This is a dyed finish that is a reddish-brown color. Dyed leather contains pigment, and even though we use a permanent finish, this pigment can still bleed off on light-colored clothing.
• Chocolate - This is a dyed finish that is a deep, dark brown—almost black. Dyed leather contains pigment, and even though we use a permanent finish, this pigment can still bleed off on light-colored clothing.
Black - This is a dyed finish. Black is not recommended for IWB holsters due to the black bleeding off when you sweat. Dyed leather contains pigment, and even though we use a permanent finish, this pigment can still bleed off on light-colored clothing.

Tan- This is a dyed finish that is an orange/tan that most makers use.  Dyed leather contains pigment, and even though we use a permanent finsish, this pigment can still bleed off on light-colored clothing. 


Finishes

Choose smooth or rough-out leather finishing for your knife sheaths or other products. For your information, rough-out is great for IWB holsters. It helps stick to clothing with less movement, and the smooth inside eliminates the need for lining the holster. Rough-out leather gives the holster texture. Also, consider:

• Natural (No Oil or Dye)
• Saddle Brown (Standard)
• Mahogany
• Dark Brown
• Chocolate
• Black Finish

The Crew at Bullard Leather Mfg LLC

100% Handmade by Bullard Leather LLC in Cooper,Texas using Herman Oak Leather (Tanned in the USA).

All my holsters are cut, stitched, and then pressed and hand molded to a perfect fit to the firearm. All edges are hand edged , hand rubbed and then hand painted for a perfect finish. Then they are hand oiled or dyed then hand buffed and hand finished to a perfect finished product. This process takes many, many hours but makes a great American made product.

A new holster may require a little break-in period after they are made and stored they can shrink up a little. Like a new pair of boots they just need to be worn. With a few days of wear the leather will form to you and your gun for many years of service.

Please note: Leather is a natural product and can vary in skin tone.

Thank you for your interest in my products.
