Baileywicke's Shop Announcement

We will be ON VACATION FOR JANUARY THRU MAY. Any orders made during that time period will not be delivered until we return to our studio in May.

Welcome! We're John and Nancy Bailey. We've been cutting and sewing leather for over 30 years.

Except for John's watercolors and carvings, our leather designs are more utilitarian than arty. We create articles that you would use every day and that will endure hard use. We use only hand-stained, top grain (or naked) cowhide. We stitch them together with tough nylon mono-filament thread, and detail them with solid brass hardware (absolutely no gilt plated parts.)
We make our belts from the finest French tanned leather that comes from a small family owned tannery in the south of France. Many US tanners have tried to duplicate their process to no avail. Some say it’s the bark from the mountain trees they use that are only available in that part of the world. Their leather is so expensive that many craftsmen, simply give up and use lesser belting leathers. I’ve refused to make belts from anything else and when I can’t get “French Double Butts,” simply lay up a small stash for my own use and wait until it becomes available again. I get it from Siegel of California.
We fully guarantee your satisfaction, as well as our craftsmanship and materials with anything that you buy from us.
I hope you enjoy your visit to our Etsy shop.
John & Nancy
