Unique Designs in Braided Kangaroo Leather Handmade to Your Color and Size Choice.

Whether it is dog leads or braided leather bracelets the mechanics of the knot and the symmetry of the braid combine into a marvelous union. While many like to use mechanical fasteners I enjoy creating a piece of art that is of itself a whole and one piece. I custom hand make each item of kangaroo leather as they are ordered, so it usually takes 5 to 7 days before an item will ship.

Looking for something custom, just drop me a note, my customers have the best ideas.

Thank you for supporting my craft,

John

I use 1/8 inch Kangaroo leather for its strength and durability. Tight knots and consistent patterning in the braid are what make quality braiding. With kangaroo leather there is a consistency that I have not found in cow leathers hence I use top quality kangaroo leather imported directly from Australia through their culling program that is often double the price of its cow counterparts. Kangaroo also ages very well becoming more supple and darkening in tones as it is worn.

When ordering please use the Note to Seller box on the Etsy checkout pages for details about your order such as wrist size and leather colors. Or you can send me a convo and I will list your item(s) as a Reserved Sale for you. I try to create your piece in a timely manor but at the same time I do take pride in my work and will not rush things to get them out.

My customers are my best inspiration!! Many of my products are inspired by commissioned pieces that customers have requested. Please don't be shy and feel free to contact me with special requests or questions about my pieces and what I could create for you.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
I accept the following methods of payment:

PayPal: Integrated with Etsy or by email invoice, PayPal is the most frequent method of payment. No account is necessary to use PayPal. If paying by E Check through PayPal, the check must clear before merchandise will ship which can take 3 to 4 business days.

Checks and Money Orders: I do accept checks and money orders but they must clear before your merchandise will ship.

Email Invoice: PayPal and my card processor ProPay have the option for email invoices. An email invoice will contain a link to a secure page on the respective website where you can enter your credit card information securely online.
Shipping
Shipping and handling, including delivery confirmation, is $3.75 for most purchases to the US. Items usually ship in 3 to 5 days of purchase. If paying by check or money order, the funds must clear before the item will be shipped. Shipping upgrades are available upon request see the information below. When your piece(s) are ready to be mailed I'll send you a note with a photo and the shipping information.

USPS Priority Mail is available for $7.25 per package but I find that First Class mail is delivered in the same amount of time. For upgraded shipping please send me a Convo before making the purchase and I can change the shipping cost in the listing for you or create a Reserved Sale for you. I can also send an email invoice for added shipping cost if necessary.

The delivery times above are taken from the USPS website and I can not guarantee that your item will be delivered within this time frame. Once it is out of my hands it is out of my control.

International Shipping
Sorry but International shipping is no longer available. International orders now require a export declaration fee of $90 (USD) added to them. I've grown my braiding business a little to big, since I bring hides directly from Australia and I'm now importing more hides then one could use for personal use, I've had to purchase a commercial import permit from US Fish and Wildlife. Unfortunately when I sell pieces outside the US I have to also declare that I'm exporting and this is where the $90 fee comes in. Nothing to do with endangered species or international treaties just an added cost of business as the business continues to grow.
