Keda Dye turns into a premium leather dye in the hands of Ed “The Bear” Labarre. This master leather craftsmanship was recently featured on the cover of Leather Crafters & Saddle Journal, a prominent leather crafting magazine based out of Rhinelander, Wisconsin. Mr Labarre offers Leather crafting, and Natural Colors techniques, along with hands on training in several classes he offers, as he tours around the USA.

“The Bear” shares some leather dye color formula samples laid out on leather, where he targets vibrant natural colors using the liquid dyes. In Ed’s “Natural Colors” Demonstration, he will spend about an hour showing the “Natural Colors” on leather process in detail. But… after that… You will have a couple hours of “Hands On” leather coloring practice!
