Rusty Dorr, in the Catskill Mountains of Upstate New York, has been handcrafting Native American and American western-inspired outerwear and accessories full-time for over 50 years.
Crafted from American Deerskin, Spanish Lamb, and a limited number of wild furs, all leathers are cut, punched, and laced by hand. Her use of hairpipe and beadwork, along with her attention to detail and quality of craftsmanship have earned her an enviable reputation for five decades. Her use of unisex patterns allows her to fit people of all sizes and shapes.
Rusty’s work has appeared in Vogue, Town & Country, Playboy, GQ, Yippy Yi Yea Western Lifestyles, True West Magazine, Cowgirl Magazine, The Country & Abroad, and Catskill Mountain Region Guide.
