Announcement    Hi. Welcome to my Etsy shop. After a couple years doing shows and focusing on direct to customer sales I'm back with some new work and a whole new shop. Over the next several months I will be updating my shop with new items ranging from wallets and belts to books and bags. I even have a few exciting new specialized items I'm looking forward to sharing with you. I still hand make every single item from start to finish in my workshop in the mountains north of Montreal.

If you have any questions please feel free to message me or check out my web site at http://marcsimardartisan.com.

About

Hand Made

With so many options in this world I sometimes find it hard to know where to put my focus and energy. Should I put energy into online sales, doing shows, or selling in boutiques. Being a one person show I find it difficult to effectively manage all of these to a standard I'm satisfied with. So I recently decided that my main focus will be handmade, high quality, functional and sustainable items for my customers. I know I'll slowly get better at the online marketing and slowly find the best shows for me and perfect boutiques I might want to work with. However all that was secondary to satisfied customers.
I'm just one person, trying my best and wanting the best for my customers, the environment, my family and ultimately for myself.

    I've been working with leather for over 12 years. I'm self taught and design/hand make every single piece myself in Montreal, QC. I strive to provide my customers with well designed, functional and sustainable items they will use for years to come.

For me there are three main reasons why I like hand made objects. First, you know who made it. You support the artist and alternative consumption. Second, you can be assured I'm doing my best to provide high quality work because my name is on it. Third is that you get something individual. I use real leather so there are natural markings that make each piece beautiful and special.

I design and hand-make all the leather goods you see here from start to finish. I hand cut each piece, and I use a Singer from the 1940’s alongside some hand-stitching to make products designed to last a lifetime.

I want to make functional, quality items that are more timeless than trend-driven. I laser etch my own artwork into the leather, and all the images relate to things I love.

Feel free to ask me any questions, I love to talk about what I do.

Shipping
Special orders are shipped after approval of the finished product.
Additional policies and FAQs
Custom work is really appreciated. I love making things for people with their input. I don't just make anything though. For me a custom piece is transforming one of my design to better suit a customer. If I have to work on sketches, new patterns or designs the price is worked out according to time involved. I still like to keep it reasonable so do not be afraid to ask any questions, who knows what is possible.
