About me:
My name is Ali and I am a 29 year old adventure instructor and leather craftswoman. When I am not traveling the world, I am in North Carolina making things out of leather.

I was lucky enough to learn leather craft from my parents. My Dad started Backstreet Leather in 1974 on a table made from salvaged floorboards and an old phone booth in the Cameron Village subway in Raleigh NC. My parents met when my mom came in to get a leather key chain with daisies on it, and the rest is history. I started doing leather work around age 8. My parents still have a small, family run shop called Backstreet Leather at the Fairgrounds Flea market in Raleigh, NC.

Growing up surrounded by all the tools and materials I needed, my creativity was free to roam.
My style is a giant jumble of contrasting elements, just like my personality. I am inspired by music, art, history, nature and travel, and my designs reflect those inspirations.

The items you see in this shop are all handmade. Our other little corner of the web, Backstreetleather.com features both our handmade work as well as manufactured items like jackets, chaps and hats.
