Who We Are
Meet Don and Barb Mohr, we are committed to handcrafting beaded leather dog collars, belts, guitar straps, tooled leather belts and gun leather. All pieces are custom designed to reflect your personal style.
Don has always had a great passion for the old west and the art of hand tooled leather. Don spent time working with an old-time saddle maker learning many tricks of the trade and Barb learned the art of loom beading by reading many books and of course the good old trial and error process.
In 1988 while living in Wisconsin Don and Barb decided to begin their unique leather business attending the larger Quarter Horse shows in Oklahoma City and Fort Worth, Texas. With Don’s old west passion growing stronger and stronger they decided to relocate next to the Superstition Mountains in Arizona here you will find Southwest Distinctions.
For the past 30 years we have used our talents creating unique leather products. Don individually designs and handcrafts each dog collar, belt, guitar strap and gun leather; while Barb does all the hand beading. Because Don and Barb are able to work hand and hand designing and creating each and every leather product a unique finished product is produced.
Thank you for stopping at our store, we look forward to be able to supply your needs.
Don and Barb
