Hello all and welcome to my website. Let me just say it would be a pleasure to work with you to create something special.

I take great pride in my work. Though I am a hobbyist, doing this in my free time because I thoroughly enjoy it, overall customer satisfaction is very important to me. I think you will find that my quick and detailed communication is a good benefit.

I do everything myself, and I do it all in the old-world methods using all hand tools. This means hand burnishing the edges by rubbing them for extended periods of time with a piece of antler. It also means hand stitching all the straps with two or more needles. This method is superior to the machine stitching/lock stitch style in many regards. All my threads are waxed, some by hand. I finish the leathers in high quality, natural products depending on the desired finish.

I hand pick all my leathers. Some are purchased in larger quantities and some are only available in small pieces for limited runs of straps. I pick my leathers based on texture, strength, suppleness, unique or vintage character or if they simply wow me. Some of my leathers come dyed from the tannery, others are dyed by me using all natural vegetable dyes.

If the project is unique, I will draw up CAD plans for the strap and present them for approval prior to making the strap. When the strap is complete I will email the pictures to you for approval prior to shipping the strap. I am confident you will find my straps to be high quality, with a lot of care and attention put into the details, which means you get a lot of value for your money.

I am looking forward to hearing from you.
