About F.D Leatherworks:
“My name is Bryan Mathis, I have made a full timeÂ career of the Fire Service since getting out of High School in 1989. I currently work for the City of Orlando Fire Department , where I have been since 1998.
In 1998 I began playing with leatherwork,Â which was something I had always wanted to do but finally did after seeing some of the radio straps the guys were wearing. I started making a few for the guys I was on shift with and then …boom…business exploded! I love going to the gym , long distance tour biking , spending time with the wife , kids (although they are grown)Â and friends , and traveling. This has always been a part time gig for me and I have started and stopped several times for numerous reasons , the most recent break was after the passing of my sister Shelley from Breast cancer in January 2013…at the time the business was namedÂ FD Leather. I am hoping to make this more of a full time job the closer I get to retirement from the F.D.Â
“LeatherÂ Truckman’s and Axe Belts have been used for years by firefighters all over the country . The belt is worn over the coat to help carry a variety of tools ,gloves ,Â search line bags and whatever else you can think of .Â These belts have been a staple of my business since I started and are in use all over the USA and abroad. All of the Truck Belts and Axe Belts I make are constructed to last a career using 13oz-15oz heavy leather with all stainless steel hardware , copper rivets , and hand stitching .
“All of the Bunker Gear Suspenders I make are produced with 9-11 oz Bridle or Veg Tanned Leather , Stainless Steel Buckles, rings and copper rivets at the connection points for superior strength . and will last for years to come no matter what you throw at them !
