Absolutely beautiful work! I will be using this as a prayer journal for my future spouse! It has a very manly feel to it, which is exactly why I chose this shop. I also messaged ahead of time, and requested more pages than listed, and they very quickly responded that they could make it happen! The pages are bound in sections which will make it last longer. Thanks so much for this amazing notebook!

Leatherwork & Costumes >> Handcrafted in the USA

Thank you for visiting our shop!
'Folk of the Wood' is a small family run business, based in central Indiana. Our goal is to provide our customers with quality costumes, accessories & unique custom pieces. We work with genuine leather & quality fabrics, bringing our historical inspired & fantasy designs into reality. We have a deep fascination with history, and love bringing it back to life! Our name is inspired by all ‘Robin Hoods’, medieval woodsman and folk from back in the day…
We are happiest when creating - whether it’s a Renaissance dress, a piece of leather Viking armor, or making a one-of-a-kind commissioned piece.
Our work has been sent all over the world – one of our favorite parts is seeing the pictures and hearing the stories of where our work ends up.
Everything you see here was handcrafted by us, in our Indiana studio. When you place an order with us, you are directly supporting a small business, and the livelihoods of two artists who love what they do. Thank you for supporting handmade!
