Even from Canada and the customs out there! :) HIGHLY RECOMMEND ALLISON. I will hopefully buy from her again! Love her items! THANK YOU AGAIN SWEETIE! :) :D!!!!! +++

About Scouts Leathers:
All leathers are hand-tooled, hand-painted, hand-dyed and hand finished on natural vegetable tanned leather. As such, there will be variations in the exact appearance of each belt. Additionally, some products are “antiqued” and manually aged to create variations such as cosmetic dye spots, scuffs and scratches- don’t sweat it!- they’re intentional and add to the uniqueness and charm of your product! As each product is made by hand, please allow for slight variances from what is shown in the made to order photos.
All leather belts are custom made to order. Belts are generally sized with approx. two inches leeway to tighten or loosen the fit. For example, if you order a 30” belt it with have holes which tighten as small as 28” and loosen as large as 32”. Please keep that in mind when ordering your size. The easiest way to check your belt size is to measure an old belt of yours from the buckle to the middle or most used hole.
All leathers are dyed/antiqued using the Eco-Flow, the only environmentally friendly leather dye on the market, it is non-toxic and biodegradable. I do my best to reuse off-cut leathers for small items like pendants, keychains, etc to avoid excess waste and am committed to recycling/upcycling leathers when I can.
All leathers have been finished to secure dyes and treat for water resistance.
They can be wiped clean with a damp cloth if necessary or refreshed twice a year with leather oils and buffed to create a shine.
Accepted payment methods
I DO offer combined shipping. Please let me know if you would like insurance on your item, typically a small additional charge.
For USA and international orders I use Canada Post Light Packet service as it is the cheapest and most efficient method of sending from the great white north (ha!). Be advised this type of shipping does not have a tracking number, if you would like one it is an additional $13.95 charge from Canada Post, please contact me so I can arrange a custom shipping listing for you. Expedited shipping is available at an additional cost, please contact for arrangements. Please be advised shipping without a tracking number is at the buyer's own risk and refunds will not be given for items lost in the mail.
All non-leather items are made and ready to ship!
Work on your leather item will not commence until payment has been received and will be shipped within 7 days or sooner (small leather items like brooches/necklaces can typically be shipped within 3 days) of ordering. If a rush order is needed, please email for arrangements as you can likely accommodated.
Refunds and Exchanges
There is no return on handmade items (banners, leathers), but jewelry and vintage items may be exchanged (where possible, most vintage I have only a single item) or refunded ONLY if they are damaged during shipping. I do my best to offer detailed pictures on vintage items so please note the "as-is" policy on vintage items. That being said, refunds will be offered if the item is mislabeled or not as described.
Refunds not available for items "lost in the mail" unless insurance is purchased (generally an extra $1.50-$5) and is recommended. Please request insurance and I will make you a custom listing.
Additional policies and FAQs
I do make custom leathers so if you've got a vision burning in your mind please don't hesitate to contact me to discuss a custom item!
Wholesale and consignment inquiries are welcome for smaller items like leather jewelry, please message me.
