Q: Can I order this same exact thing as you made for so and so?

A: No, we can make you a similar item but seeing as each item is handmade and crafted no two items we ever make can be exactly the same therefore they are OOAK. We can make them similarly though.

Leather Techniques

Q: What is the process to make a piece from start to finish?

A: First we draw the design up - cut out a design - transfer it to the leather. Then we hand carved the design with a small knife called a swivel knife. After that we tool it, meaning we use small metal stamps to make deep lasting impressions to give the piece depth and character. Following that we hand dye and paint the piece using professional leather oil dyes and paints from various leather distributors. Then we oil the piece with a neetsfoot and extra virgin oil to give it the nutrients and supple feel. Some pieces are sealed with a matted professional water resistant wax or an acrylic sealant. Finally we assemble the piece with a saddle stitch which is inner locking using a waxed thread to prevent breakage and give it strength or we hand braid the edges with kangaroo lace. Embellishments are added for a touch of class and charm. All hardware is either forged by Artifact Metalworks or military grade strength steel and antique brass.

Q: Where do you get your leather from?

A: Various US sources. We do not source outside of the US. We either use supple oil tanned hot stuffed leathers or vegetable tanned leathers. All leathers are either cow horse or deer unless otherwise specified.

Q: What does Ethically Sourced mean? 

A: If the piece states ethically sourced it means that the animal has died of natural causes and has been humanly resourced. 

Q: Can I request ethically sourced items?

A: Yes! That would be a custom order unless the piece states ethically sourced already. Understand this leather is harder to come by so it is priced higher. Feel free to Contact us to find out more.

 


Shipping

Q: What should I expect with US shipping? Lost or stolen items?

A: Us clients will have a 2-4 day processing and handling time. Unless its made to order. You will be provided with a tracking number after the package is in transit.
