Announcement   We will be leaving to vend at Pennsic War, on July 22th, and returning the August 22nd.
Due to the need to make stock for Pennsic, this being such a large event, and due to some custom orders received from a Large Production Company we will have to stop taking Customized Orders from July 4th through August 22nd. We will continue to work on and ship Customized Orders that have been received before that time. We will also continue to sell In Stock Products until the July 22nd.

Earthly Leather Design is mostly a Made to Order and Custom Made Items Business. Meaning most of our Leather Products are made after Purchase to the Color and Size Specifications you give us. We typically run around a 2 week production time. So your item will most likely ship at the end of 2 weeks. If you need some fast ask us if we have something similar in stock.
In addition to our Made to Order and Customized Products, some of the Items we have listed on Etsy are One of a Kind, Stock from events that we vend.

This custom piece is more beautiful than I ever could have imagined. I am so excited to use it at my next event. The quality of the work speaks for itself. Absolutely gorgeous piece! I can't say enough about it!

Wonderful item. Well made, the latch is sturdy and the patch is vibrant. It is a gift for my granddaughter and I'm sure she will love it. It arrived quickly and was well packaged. I will check out EarthlyLeatherDesign again.

About

I live and breath leather.

This all started by making a few items for friends and then I thought I would sell a few things to make some extra cash. Now this has taken on a life of it's own and I love it!

I am second generation leather worker. I have honed my craft over trial, error, and time. I have made many pieces for my friends who all enjoy my skills. I have made everything from pouches, belts, mug straps, leather skirts, leather halter tops, and many other things over the years. My partner, shipper, assembler, web designer, photo editor, and handyman Randy, also helps me assemble items and helps me make my products top notch!
Every challenge is a new adventure and selling my products is the biggest adventure of them all.

My parents own Lutz's Leather, where I have worked for over 10 years, www.lutzsleather.com . We make our own custom saddle bags and other leather accessories. I owe my talents to my incredibly talented father, who started out in the basement of our house making leather belts. He then moved to a slightly bigger shop in down town Ellwood City. After about 10 years of building the business up, we moved to our current location about 3 miles out of Ellwood City, where I help run the business, with my mother on the front end, who also is our accomplished seamstress, and has taught me a trick or two herself. Then I help in the back making products to sell to our customers. Leather is my life and I enjoy every step of the creative process.

As well as being an accomplished leather worker, I have been machine sewing my own Reenactment clothing for about ten years. I went to my first SCA event about ten years ago and have been inspired by Middle Ages ever since.

I enjoy the craft so much that I am ready to share my talent with others. I hope my pieces bring as much joy to others, as they bring to me when I make them.

I was raised with the Ideal of "Anything worth doing is worth doing right". So I guarantee all of my products. Leather is my life and I would like to keep it that way.

The Items we have listed on Etsy are One of a Kind and/or Leftover Stock from events that we vend. Earthly Leather Design is mostly a Made to Order and Custom Made Items Business. Meaning most of our Leather Products are made after Purchase to the Color and Size Specifications you give us. If you would like to have us make an Item for you please visit our Website, EarthlyLeatherDesign.com.

Please keep in mind I also work a full time job on top of my two Etsy shops and custom website. Yes I have three shops. The other shop is https://www.etsy.com/shop/EarthlyLeatherSupply, and our website is EarthlyLeatherDesign.com.

I am happy to help you. I would like you to have a happy and long lasting experience with my items. There is no reason to threaten me or get nasty. I will treat you with the same manner as you treat me. Please feel free to contact me for clarifications or with any questions you may have.

All questions should go directly through Etsy. I check etsy about 3 to 4 times a day, but do not check my email daily and you are also likely to end up In my "Junk Mail" (stupid Filters, lol).

~Seasonal Returns
The holidays are always coming and going, if your item is a gift please let me know so I can give you a special return date.
__________________________________________
Additional policies and FAQs
The Size Option in Belt Listings refer to your Actual Waist Size, Not Pant Size and not Total Belt Length. You give us your Waist Size and we do the rest.
When you measure for your size; please measure where you wear your pants, or measure using an existing belt.
Your center hole will be the measurement you gave us. You will have 3 holes forward and 3 holes back for adjustment.

Many pant manufactures do not make their pants using actual waist measurements for their waist sizes. For example I once had a man buy a 30in waist belt, because that is what size his pants are. He got it home and was very angry because it did not fit. When he came back I measured his waist. His waist was 36 inches and that is the size belt he needed.

~How To measure your Actual Waist Size
1) Take a tape measure, and/or peace of string/rope.
2) Put the end of the string on the button of your pants and wrap it around once.
3) Pull the String/Rope to the tightness that you will wear the belt.
4) Mark where the string meets on your button.
5) Measure the length of the rope.

~How to measure your old belt
Buckle; Measure from the fold holding your buckle to the hole you use most.
Ring; Measure from the fold holding your ring to where the belt passes through the ring.

When you measure for your size please measure where your belt will sit. So if you’re a lady and wear low rise jeans measure where your jeans sit.
If you have any questions please contact me.
__________________________________________

I seal all of my Leather thoroughly. But the color does fade with time, no matter what you do. It's just general wear and tear. How much you wear the Item, and how long it is in the sun contributes to how fast fading happens. Leather also stretches over time.
__________________________________________

I only dye the backs of belts and straps as a special request, and am very against it. I AM NOT to be held responsible for any color bleeding from the back of a belt/strap onto clothing. I have never had a problem, but accidents do happen. I only do it because people ask for it. I take multiple precautions to prevent bleeding.
1) I only dye the visible backing.
2) I only apply one coat of coloring to the back of the belt/strap. So it won't be dark black, but a soft black, more like a very dark gray.
3) I thoroughly seal every dyed back multiple times
