Karla's Sweet Treats on Mar 25, 2018

5 out of 5 stars

This was the perfect gift! My friend loved it and he’s a salesman, always taking notes so this is a percent size. The leather is durable and yet soft. His name in the back made it even more personal. Thank you for a great job and product.

About

~ Artistry in Leather ~

- Our Work -
Offering up over 15 years of experience in crafting and the leather industry - We specialize in hard to find supplies, and our own handmade goods such as bracers, pouches, small leather accessories, with a focus on artistic painting and carving into leather. We have also done everything from movie replicas and armor components, to fashion purses and work for local Fire departments.

*If you are looking for something in particular as far as leathers or leathercraft supplies, let us know and chances are we may know where to get it!*

We are gamers ourselves, with a passion for our pastimes and our craft :) We strive to make beautiful and functional gear- Leatherwork is functional Art!
We pride ourselves in quality craftsmanship, and unique creations in leather. Leatherworking has been a true "labor of love" for myself for many years. I enjoy teaching about it, traveling to Conventions and Art Shows to sell, and learning as much as I can to further our knowledge, and continue to make great gear and new ideas for our customers. We are based out of Georgia, but often travel to Tennessee and South Carolina to attend festivals and games. So, a warm welcome and thanks for visiting! ~ Amber Ivey

- Our Guarantee ! -
We do stand by our products and take a lot pride in our craftsmanship. Many item types are "field tested" by ourselves and friends at games and in everyday life for years before they are offered for sale as products. We do try out a large variety of designs and new ideas each year - so, if it is ever needed, we will repair items:
- Immediately, upon chance of defective hardware (rivets, buckles, etc.), even design or leather flaws that cause the item to come apart. ( please note that we will have to make a determination on such flaws by inspecting the item)
- Down the road, repair service is available due to 'normal' use and wear if ever needed. You can contact us, even years down the road, if your item needs fixing and we will see what we can do! Please note that you will have to ship the item back to us, but we may ship it back to you upon completion without additional shipping charges.

• Most of what we use is cow and goat leather, and these leathers are a by-product of the meat industry. It is a naturally based material, and no two items will be quite the same. Please expect natural marks and slight variations from the dyes and hides we use to craft our goods. We prefer, and use, domestic and environmentally conscious materials ( such as scrap leather and fur) as much as possible!*

Returns and exchanges
Your satisfaction with our goods is very important to us- please contact us with any concerns!
- Returns : - may be offered as an exchange for other goods we can make, or money back, at our discretion. We strive for our customers satisfaction though, and we'd much rather have a satisfactory resolution for all involved if there is something that can be done about an issue :) Color mix ups and size variations do happen, so we will do our very best to fix problems. Please note that returns MUST be shipped back to us 7 days after the buyer receives it. Sorry, an item cant be used for a weekend and then sent back because your character perishes. Buyer must ship item back, but depending upon the nature of the issue, return shipping charges may be refunded.
Payment
- Payments : -
Can be by PayPal or Money Orders through this site- please contact us with any payment questions. Please allow time for PayPal payments especially bank drafts, to clear, or for Money Orders to be received by mail and then cleared with the bank.
PayPal must be received by 5 days after listing end, Money Orders by 7 days.
* Custom orders , when accepted, have special requirements such as 50% the projected project's cost up front. Please email ahead of time for situations like this- or for detailed inquiries.

!! Contact is a courtesy, and is Expected by a few days after ending a listing or making an order, if we have not received payment or any other etsy or email communication from a buyer ! ! Items that have not been verified by some sort of contact after a few days may very well be re-listed for sale to someone else, and an unpaid item report placed on the buyer, along with the appropriate feedback. Rarely have we had to do this, but it does happen. So... that being said, we do not place restrictions on users for bidding/purchasing our items except: 1) when there are already unpaid item reports on an account or 2) there is a low # of feedback on an account or negative marks. We reserve the right to contact such potential buyers. If there is a problem, or an issue that has come up with paying for an item, PLEASE contact us as usually something can be worked out!
Shipping
- Shipping Info -
Shipping discounts are offered for multiple purchases from us! Save alot on shipping when you order more than 1 item :)
We will ONLY ship items after receiving cleared payment in full.
Please check the handling time of each item on its individual page. Production times do vary.
---> Domestic (USA) shipping : We use USPS standard for shipping, either First Class or Priority. USPS has great rates, and have been very reliable for us, so we use them to try to pass good shipping prices on to our customers. However, items can always be shipped with another carrier or to different specifications, just ask. Military destinations welcome, please contact us first for info.
Domestic tracking ( Delivery Confirmation) is included in shipping charges.
Insurance is NOT included, but CAN be added-Please let us know if you would like to add this option to your package. It usually costs around $3 for our items. Purchases over $85 will have insurance included in the shipping amt.& added to the package.

---> International shipping : We love our international customers!! To any destination outside of the USA, please contact us for rates and/or a modified invoice.
** Please note that we offer, and craft with, a a wide variety of furs and sometimes exotic leathers. Customs regulations may prohibit us from sending some particular types of items to some countries** We can only ship to the best of our knowledge, research, and resources - within applicable laws.
USPS First Class International is our service of choice- it usually gets to its destination in about the same amount of time as "priority" and costs less ( ie. First Class to the UK usually takes about a week). However, Priority mail International is a great service if time is a concern as it seems to clear customs quicker to most destinations. Express Mail is available, please see below.
We ship standard to: Canada, United Kingdom and Ireland, Spain, Switzerland Germany, France, and Australia. Other locations please contact us first for shipping availability.
Insurance on international orders unfortunately cannot be added through standard USPS services, please contact us with any concerns. Insurance and limited Tracking IS included on Express Mail International, please contact us for rates ( usually around $50 for our items, 3-4 business day delivery)
