Announcement    Most of our corsets and leather goods are made especially for you once you place an order with us. This process can take a while depending on whether we have the materials in stock - some orders may take up to 8-12 weeks to ship. If this will not suit your deadline, please ask us if it can be done before placing your order and we will be as accommodating as we possibly can. If you require a rush delivery, please make a note in the comments section of your order so that we have it on record. If you do not, we can not guarantee delivery by that date. Please remember, we are making all of these products by hand, here in Pennsylvania. If you need something sooner, please send us an inquiry by email at bruteforce [!at] bruteforceleather.com or call us at (717)695-2247. Our office hours are between 10am and 5pm EST.

Supporting American industries and workers is very important to us. All of our materials, including fabric, metal, leather, and acrylic are made in the United States or imported from Sheffield, England. We do not outsource any of our labor to other countries. Even the fabric is milled in Pennsylvania.

---------------------------------------------------------

Formerly known as Brute Force Leather and Fallen Angel Fashions, we first started making corsets and costume pieces back in 1996 because there was so much badly-made, mass-produced rubbish out there. We wanted to show the world that craftsmanship was still alive.

Supporting American industries and workers is very important to us. All of our materials, including fabric, metal, leather, and acrylic are made in the United States or imported from Sheffield, England. We do not outsource any of our labor to other countries. Even the fabric is milled in Pennsylvania.

Thomas has been at the forefront of the steampunk movement since the 1980s and lately, this has become our main focus. However, we do still make custom fantasy leather upon request (we have not given ourselves over completely to the sepia side of the force).

We've overcome flooding, knock-offs of our products, and a bad economy but after fifteen years, we're still here!

Check out owner Thomas Willeford's books "Steampunk Gear, Gadgets, and Gizmos" and "The Steampunk Adventurer's Guide" (McGraw-Hill), the best-selling steampunk how-to books on the market.
