Recreating Beauty and Making a Difference!

Nearly Six Hundred

The number of leather items that got a second life at my workshop in 2022.

I believe stories and memories live in worn leather goods and should be carried into the future, on the shoulder, or in the hand, of everyone.

Re-purposing leather goods speak to my grassroots desire for recycling. It is important for me to have a small footprint on this planet.

What are my customers saying...



Oh my goodness they are both wonderful!!!! The large one is so Riley. I hope I can wait to give to her. I was showing Brad and he told me to keep the small one. Did not think of that but great idea. I can use at the horse shows! So beautiful!



Amazing craftwork, beautiful detail & leather is so soft. Looking forward to my new addiction.



Betsy! Beautiful! Just beatiful. Larger than I imaged, and I'll have no problem filling it and strutting around. A major part of my Christmas shopping is now complete. Pictures to follow. Thank you so much.
