It all started with... a duck?

Believe it or not, but the main hero who brought an idea of making our own leather shop is actually a duck. And not just a simple duck, but little sneaky curious buddy who decided that it's a great idea to sneak on my dog from behind.
And what do most dogs do when they turn around and see something running away from under their tail? They chase. What do owners do? They suddenly learn to fly! Well, at least not too far, as my dog was ONLY around 130 pounds. It could be worse.
But the worst part of story is that this didn't end with me flying behind my dog, no - his collar suddenly broke and the bear was free to run wild. At that moment he forgot any training we did and the last thing I saw was black fluffy tail disappearing behind bushes on the river shore.

Two weeks later after restless searches we found him, safe and sound, but now he needed new collar - a trustworthy one, that would hold well even heavy pulls, and yet a beautiful one - because my teddy bear deserves to look good. This is when I thought - why can't I make one myself? I will know how strong it is, I will make a design I want.

So since this point I taught myself leatherworking, started making my first collars and eventualy got people asking about them. After a couple of months I already had several styles that later turned into a whole online shop with a couple of members working on it.

Now it's already 3rd year we craft leather products. It's not only collars - we have a lot of different products, different designs and are still creating new ones. Hopefully, you can be a part of our motivation and reason to move on!
