I've purchased things from this store before and have always been happy with them, but this one really takes the cake! I needed a good spellbook prop, so I ordered a custom notebook in brown with arabesque tiles. I expected it to be the same brown as the other notebook I have, but instead I received this beautiful, SPARKLY golden journal that screams "magic"! Absolutely perfect for what I need it for! It even came with a little matching pouch! Thank you Crimson Chain!

Very nice quality bag! Heavy weight loop attachment means you can load the heck out of it with loot. Very nice closure hardware.

My husband was so excited when i gave him this notebook! He didn't think it was something he would be able to get as he didn't get it when we went to phx fan fest. Thank you so much. Beautiful work!!

About

The Crimson Chain

Started many moons ago by Virgil Jones as a chainmaille and blade vending adventure, Crimson Chain branched off into leather out of a necessity for badass leather garb.

In the years hence, Crimson Chain Leatherworks has flourished into a one-stop shop for nerdy leather goods! We offer hundreds of items out of our booths, vending all across the USA.

We make everything in a workshop in Toledo, Ohio with a team of about a dozen creative folks hammering, cutting, sewing, staining and stamping their butts off to make glorious things for you!

We create leather coats, tunics, bodices and doublets for renaissance fair costuming, cosplay and LARP adventures. We create accessories for feasting, drinking, holding "potions," carrying weapons and simply looking cool. We make armor, pauldrons, quivers, belts, bracers and a full array of sporrans and pouches. We also create a line of ARD - Adult Recreational Devices - such as cuffs, collars, leashes and ankle cuffs.

To see everything we do, you will HAVE to visit us at one of our many convention or faire booths - a list of shows we will be attending is on our website. This shop is a curated selection of the things we do - it would be *impossible* to list everything!

Additional policies and FAQs
Please keep in mind: leather is a natural product. It is not always smooth or flawless – it is the skin of an animal that has spent it’s life grazing, wandering, getting feasted upon by bugs and probably macking on a barbed-wire fence or two. Leather has character – scars, bumps, brands and variegation in texture. It is not cost-effective to only use the pristine parts of the hide, so we use our judgement when it comes to natural inclusions.

We guarantee our workmanship under normal usage conditions. If you have a problem with your item, please contact us and we will work with you to resolve the issue.

We do not and cannot accept custom orders.
