With many wallets and credit card cases to compliment it.

Leather Goods the way you've always wanted them but didn't know where to get them!
Wallets, Card Holders, Belts, Dog, and Cat collars and much more.

Many of our smaller items like key Fobs, Card Cases make wonderful Groomsmen and Bridesmaids gifts, contact us for quantity discounts.

Made from REAL LEATHER.....You simply can't get a better product than we hand produce, in Portland, Oregon.

Hand Chosen leather is one reason we can say that our Belts and Wallets typically last 10 to 15 years. Every item is painstakingly stamped and dyed by hand.

When we get real busy my family may help with the finish work, waxing, antiquing, edging, shipping....

Video summary: Made for a Florida customer, using her artwork. What do you have up your sleeve??

He who works with his hands and his head and his heart .... is an artist..........~ Francis of Assisi

One of life’s greatest feelings? The look on someone’s face when they see for the very first time how the raw vision in their head has become tangible and real…in the form of leather…soft yet tough, smooth yet rough.

Creating these artful works of leather has been a personal evolution, one that started in 1973. My first project – utter disaster. Since that day I’ve been on my own personal leather journey for the last 40-plus years. And, each person I’ve encountered along the way is part of this journey.

For that I thank you, my valued customers from yesterday, today and in the future for taking this journey with me. May I continue to inspire you with my creations the way that you inspire me. And remember, having us make it for you, means the leather is ....Real Leather...made to last for years

    Doing what you love isn't called work, it's a pleasure. There's something about creating a product and other people like it enough to actually pay you money for it How can that be called WORK, I feel so blessed that I've been able to do this in life

    Honey, I couldn't do it without you, even though you are a NEAT FREAK and I'm just the MESSY ARTIST, It's you're tenacity that brings it all together. I once told her... "Hey, I'm an artist, do I have to be NEAT too?" She said "Um YUP" That's MY wife

    My fabulous wife and life partner. She makes most of the wallet insides. Does most of the shipping and cleans up after me, and I need that. Shortly after we met she said something about me being messy, I looked at her and said, "I'm an artist.... I have to be neat too?"

Frequently asked questions
Sizing details

My belt doesn't fit. What can I do about it?

I consider a belt sized correctly if it's within 3/4" of the stated size from the rollover at the buckle end to the center hole on the belt.

Please,Please, Please read the SIZING information listed with each belt and in the photo # 5 on most belts. If you give me the wrong size, I will remake the belt for 1/2 price...IF....you return the original belt, you pay postage each way.

I have done everything possible to make it clear how to measure and or buy the correct size belt...I strongly suggest you read the description text of each belt and look at photo #5, short version is..measure your waist or the person's waist and give us that # or find out the pant size and tell me that figure... :-) JM

Sizing details

What do you mean "we ship by waist size"?

Waist size and pants size are NOT the same. For some reason "Pant" size is 2" smaller than the actual "Waist" size.
Let's say the pant size is 34" if you actually measured the waist it would measure 36" (don't know why).

So, we ship for waist size. If you tell us 34" that's what our belt will be 34" from the rollover at the buckle to the center hole. If you are a 34 pants you should order a size 36 belt.

Please, keep in mind our size chart when ordering is WAIST size which is 2" larger than PANTS size.
