About Us

Black River Designs is nestled in the picturesque town of Holland Michigan .  Dee Freestone is the craftsperson who brings the designs to life.  After spending time as a seamstress and dabbling in various forms of art, from acrylic paint to landscape quilting, she undertook the challenge of leather work. 
It didn't take long to see this is where her passion should be centered.  From the selection of the hides to the design work, great satisfaction is had when each piece is done.
We use only full grain leather and each item is hand crafted with great care and made for years of use and will only get better with age.
