About AmericanRuin

Sales 3,184
On Etsy since 2012

From Rags to RUIN

Welcome to American Ruin! We offer an eclectic array of oddities as well as handmade leather novelties that range between the simple and utilitarian to the beautifully bizarre.

American Ruin focuses on making high quality leather items, unique bone jewelry and other oddities, and providing five star customer service.

Following our Native American traditions, we strive to be as green as possible. Along with the many re-purposed and up-cycled items found in our shop, we also use recycled materials for packaging and shipping whenever possible. With our taxidermy items, all bones and fur are collected cruelty free from animals that passed prior to acquisition. Just as our ancestors have done for centuries, every part of an animal is used, transformed into its next state of being.

We love a challenge! If you have a special request, by all means inquire within. We will do our best to make your vision a reality.

Cheers!
