♥We ship via First Class, Priority and Express USPS mail, once you add your item(s) to your cart, Etsy will automatically calculate the available rates for you based on your shipping address.
♥We do ship worldwide but please be aware that shipping transit times vary greatly depending on the destination and local customs laws. Any customs fees charged are the responsibility of the buyer, we have no control over what destination countries charge and it varies greatly as well.
♥to give you an idea of transit time, when shipping to Australia most orders take 1.5-3 weeks transit time with standard First Class shipping, 1-2.5 weeks to the UK and generally 2 weeks to Canada. Please know that shipping time is on top of production time.
♥The USPS has just raised their International shipping rates (grrr), we have listed the lowest price we can for each item but we will certainly check all our overseas orders for over-payment of shipping , especially for multiple items purchased in one order and send you a refund if you have overpaid. If you like, please contact us before you make your purchase in order for us to get you an accurate shipping quote and we'll then create a custom listing for you.

Why is your leather NOT WATERPROOF? All leather is a natural skin, it retains moisture, gets dry and can warp and crack without proper care.. Just like us ;)

Leather in super rugged items like shoes, jackets and saddles are usually made with an Oil tanning process rather than the safer, more eco & health conscious Vegetable tanned process we support.

Then we use only the best eco & health conscious finishing products - eco-flo environmentally safe stains and varnishes. The varnishes are water-resistant but by no means waterproof. In order to get the permanent, water-proof finishes like you have on shoes, jackets and the like - we would have to use a toxic stain and finish that you can't even buy in California. Boo.

Sooo, we create a totally safe product that just needs a bit of your love and care. If it's a piece of jewelry or pet collar, remove before bathing, swimming, showering or hand washing.. if it does happen to get a splash on it, allow it to dry fully, don't wipe or rub it.

On all functional pieces, I add a conditioning creme to keep it supple and flexible and then a final layer of snow-proofing. This is a wax based polish that really helps protect the piece from the elements.

You may want to condition your pieces over time as the coats I've applied wear away, you can find wonderful conditioning cremes like Tandy's Leather Conditioner to make your pieces supple and rejuvenate them... This cream is a combination of natural and synthetic wax emulsions (with bees wax) and does an amazing job!

Please make sure to inspect the leather, clips rings and buckles on your camera straps and belts for signs of wear and tear with use and age.

About

Brandy's dad was a leatherworker in the 70's & 80's with his own traveling shop, he set up in amusement parks and made custom belts, jewelry and more for the happy tourists!

Now Brandy has taken to making leather goods herself, "I love taking my ideas and melding them with my customer's - creating something truly unique for the special people in their lives!"

At Mesa Dreams Leather Goods, We love all things travel - Brandy has lived in 33 places in 36 years, a born nomad! Shop pups Layla and Tupelo have lived in 10 states in their 12 years and happily stare out the car window watching the world go by on road trips..

Why isn't your leather waterproof? All leather is a natural skin, it retains moisture, gets dry and can warp and crack without proper care.. Just like us ;)

I use only the best eco & health conscious products - vegetable tanned leathers and eco-flo, environmentally safe stains and varnishes. The varnishes are water-resistant but by no means waterproof. In order to get the permanent, water-proof finishes like you have on shoes, jackets and the like - we would have to use a toxic stain and finish that you can't even buy in California. It causes Cancer. Boo.

Leather FAQ (please read)

~Leather is a natural skin and can vary greatly
~Each piece will have it's own unique grain - some have very little to no noticeable grain, other pieces have tons! Your piece (unless it's the ready made one in the photo) will vary from what you see in the listing.
~Leather stains differently. The same stain can be used on 10 pieces and come out in 10 different shades. They will all be similar but there will be slight variances in shade.
~Sometimes a natural, unstained piece looks completely smooth and solid but when stained, patterns can emerge - showing maybe 2 different colors, kinda like the way a Holstein looks...
~letters are hand stamped, one by one, they won't always be razor straight but hey, I like it that way! ;)
~the leather is finished with a water-resistant varnish, it is not waterproof! Please remove leather jewelry before showering, bathing, swimming and washing your hands. Leather can warp and over time, some stain can wash away.
~Every piece comes wrapped and packed in pretty cello sleeves with colorful labels attached with info and care instructions.
~If you join my facebook page you will get alerted to special coupon codes, be the first to see new designs, enter giveaways and more! https://www.facebook.com/MesaDreams
~I'm always imagining, so are you.. let's see what we can come up with together!

Leather CARE ::: Super Important:::
Leather is a natural skin and is not waterproof.. All my pieces are coated in a water-resistant vanish that will keep it safe from the occasional drop here and there but please, do not immerse in water for any length of time. The leather will absorb water, warp and the stain will wash away - repeated exposure to water eventually rots leather and weakens it to the point it will snap with any pressure.

Just like your leather jacket or shoes, over time you may want to condition the leather and reseal it.. there are many great leather care products on the market, plus you can take it to a shoe repair shop and they will freshen it up for you!

*** Items can not be returned because of water damage or mishandling. Please read our Leather FAQ and CARE info on this page. Leather needs to be treated with care - it will cut, rip, fray or warp with rough handling.
