About Us & Our Team
Like our brand, we were born and raised in the western frontier. We believe in hard work, dedication and a commitment. If it aint done right, it aint done.
“The Boss Man"
William Briggs is truly a jack of all trades when it comes to Lone Tree Leather Works. He is the mastermind behind it all - an idea born and shaped around the Briggs family table in 2011. Master belt maker, customer relations, and general manager are just a few of the hats he wears on a day to day basis.
Bill is a true cowboy in every sense of the word. He has spent thousands of hours horseback both as a working cowboy and a professional outfitter and guide.
He has always been fascinated with the beauty and durability of leather. Providing good people with a unique, hand-tooled leather belt in the old traditional style gives him a great deal of satisfaction.
“The Real Boss"
DeAnn was raised on a cattle ranch just outside of Lima, MT. She spent many hours with her family haying and working cows among other things while growing up.
She married Bill in '85 and they have eight children. Being a wife and mother are among her absolute favorite things. She enjoys beating everyone at cards, making delicious food, and any movie with Tom Selleck.
DeAnn is in charge of the clerical side of the business. She keeps supplies in stock, prepares all of the belts for shipment, and has spent far too much time reconciling bank statements for her liking.
