QueenofCupsHidecraft's Shop Policies
The Queen of Cups is a Montana based wild hide craftswoman. In her travels, she collects buttery soft elk, deer and antelope hides and hands stitches them into belt bags, purses, totes, delicate wallets, book covers and whatever else is born out of her off the grid, mountain studio. Hand tanned road kill fur and tails are often included- if you have any questions on the origin of any fur trim, please ask!
All pieces are completely hand buckstitched unless otherwise noted, using traditional construction techniques dating back to the 1800's, and used to by the mountain women and men of the West, the Metis, and incorporated into Native craft methods. These gals are meant to be functional, including strap key chains and other practical details. Enjoy!
"Our imagination flies;
we are its shadow
on the earth."
