Custom Metal, Leather Goods & Printmaking


Proudly Crafted in Colorado

Dying Breeds is a business that was founded in 2008 by Josh Bales, a working blacksmith, leather worker and printmaker in Evergreen, Colorado.  Each of these disciplines plays a vital role in all decisions during the process of creating an image, whether it is for iron work or leather goods, with the core foundation grounded in Josh’s illustrative drawing style.

All designs are original and all work is executed by Josh with the exception of a helper from time to time when the load gets heavy.

All products are created with strength and durability being the highest priority to ensure the longevity of the goods.
