This was a Christmas gift & my husband said that it was his favorite gift! He is 6'3" 260lbs it fits great! It has been worn in the shop while he works & he loves all the pockets & loves how durable, yet comfortable it is. The other day he discovered he loved it for BBQing too. Ha!

Very nice coin pouch with soft leather. Zipper a little stiff, but I think it will smooth out with use. Perfect size, and shipped very quickly. Would order from this vendor again. Thanks!

She made a change to my order without consulting me , when I asked her to replace it what ensued was the absolute worst customer service I have ever experienced - this , after purchasing two belts from her ! She never resolved the issue , she did not care - I am appalled by her indifference to the buyer , please think twice before giving your hard earned money to this person . I now buy belts from the etsy shop 'WhatTheBuckle' and the straps are gorgeous and half the price !

About

It is all about LEATHER.

It was the eighties, I Was 21 years old and my sister wanted a pair of suede pants. I was already deep into my sewing skills but all revolving around fabric fashion- no leather. In spite of this, I went to the yellow pages-found- Dipilla Leather and made my way to Spadina Ave. in Toronto's then fashion district.

Leather clothing slowly developed into leather accessories that I was then wholesaling to Toronto stores. By my thirties wholesaling had transformed into the much more satisfying role of selling my work directly to my clientele through the Ontario craft show circuit.

It was then that my skills as a leathersmith truly began to develop. I taught myself bag making, and have spent years designing and developing an extensive small leather goods line.

If it can be made in leather I have probably made it at some point.
I started with leather clothing in my early years moving from there to small leather goods. I've made dog leashes and collars, hassocks, countless belts, hair accessories, book covers, gadget cases and of course so many bags and purse of every sort and style.

Ship items back within: 30 days of delivery
I don't accept cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
The following items can't be returned or exchanged
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
  • Custom or personalised orders
  • Perishable products (like food or flowers)
  • Digital downloads
  • Intimate items (for health/hygiene reasons)
  • Items on sale
Please be thoughtful when you choose to order. If something arrives and it is not what you expected you may exchange it against something else in my line. In this case you would have to pay the return postage and the postage for this new arrival. If you really. really do not want the item or any other Karen Gunna item then it may be returned but I with hold a 20% restocking fee.
If your item is defective -that is a different story and once it has been returned I would do a complete refund.
I do find most of us are quite reasonable so the main thing is to get into communication mode and we'll figure things out.
Payment
Payment is accepted through pay pal and, or through Etsy itself, due at check out.
Shipping
I ship on Tuesdays and Fridays.


Don't worry that I have not returned your convos immediately. I live in front of my work bench-not the computer. If I am around I usually get to it within 24 hours.

One other way I sell my work is at Canadian craft shows.This means on week-ends, sometimes starting on a Friday I am out of town.

If out of town it may have to wait until the following Monday when I've come back from the show.

I ship my work with Canada Post. US orders are taking about a week.
Canadian orders are 2-3 business days.
Europe and Australia are 4-6 weeks and elsewhere sometimes even 7-8 weeks. This is because I list my items with the least expensive way possible. If someone is willing to pay $25.00 more, there is an expedited listing at the last page of my shop and things would arrive within a week.
My advice is be patient. Once you do get your leather article you'll have it for years.

Hope this helps.

Wholesale inquiries are welcome.
Privacy
Information I Collect
To fulfil your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorised Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for a custom order leather item), if you contact me directly.

Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It
I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:
* as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
* when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list;
* if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
* as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.



Information Sharing and Disclosure
Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:
* Etsy. I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.
* Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
* Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.


Data Retention
I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy. However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements. Canadian tax laws want me to keep my business data for 7 years.



Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU
I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If I am deemed to transfer information about you outside of the EU, I rely on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer, as Google Cloud is Privacy Shield certified.


Your Rights
If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:
* Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.
* Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.
* Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
* Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.
