on the square in llano, texas
Russell Baros is an artist in the true sense of the word. He exudes a unique flair as you catch the first glimpse of him and his work. A professional Jockey by trade he has been interested in leather making his entire life. Saving small bits and pieces of leather he would happen upon even in childhood, waiting to create that "perfect" project. After one of many serious injuries he opened a leather shop and trading post in the then small town of Bernallillo, New Mexico.
Russell now resides in Llano, Texas and produces top of the line Jockey Saddles for the Professional Jockey Industry. He still finds time to express his artistic side in various leather related projects with a wide range from chaps to western saddles and cowboy accessories. He and his life partner Robin Chiesa, an artist as well are now in collaboration creating unique and nature inspired medicine bags, buffalo, elk and buckskin bags and pouches, elk antler belts accessories and jewelry. The art pieces are created with care, concern, and the utmost respect for each of Mother Earth's materials used in these beautiful creations.
