Richard “Bear” Ware

Barbour County



Bear’s Leather Shop was born from a desire to produce a quality handmade leather product, that would last for decades. I tool pictures and scenes on the products I make, as well as framed pictures. I strive to make a product that my customers will be proud of for decades.


I am a leather craftsman dealing with common items like wallets and belts made from USA leather, and my specialty is pictures tooled in leather such as wildlife, scenic elements, people, and pets. I made portraits of Charlie Daniels and David Allan Coe, and was able to present the works to each in person. I do custom work of all kinds and custom tooling. I was born and live in Barbour County and work in same.
