It is all about LEATHER.

If it can be made in leather I have probably made it at some point.
I started with leather clothing in my early years moving from there to small leather goods. I've made dog leashes and collars, hassocks, countless belts, hair accessories, book covers, gadget cases and of course so many bags and purse of every sort and style.

    Owner, I Am Active In Every Part Of My Micro Business, Designer

    I have been designing and crafting leather accessories for over 25 years. I create my leather goods from a careful blend of appropriate leathers, durable hardware and indestructible thread. Distinctive products that will stand the test of time.

  • Crissie


    Crissie is my long time friend who got "pulled" into the studio. Busy in her own creative life she helps out two days a week in the workshop. Her days are busy with prepping work for sewing or snapping and finishing pieces that have been sewn.

  • Ali


    Also known as the husband- Ali does all the post office runs, trips to leather suppliers and deliveries. More important is the leather cutting that he does. Occasionally he is pulled in as our model.

Hello, thanks for considering a Karen Gunna purchase.
I have been designing and making leather goods my whole adult life. I love what I do and to this day my leather work challenges and satisfies me. I strive hard to make sure that anything I make has NO built in obsolescence. I want it to serve and give you pleasure for years to come.
I value and thank you for your business. Anything I have ever bought has been paid for because someone like you has honored me with a Karen Gunna purchase.

I ship on Tuesdays and Fridays.
Don't worry that I have not returned your convos immediately. I live in front of my work bench-not the computer. If I am around I usually get back to the computer within 24 hours.

One other way I sell my work is at Canadian craft shows.This means on week-ends, sometimes starting on a Friday I am out of town.

If out of town it may have to wait until the following Monday when I've come back from the show.

I ship my work with Canada Post. US orders are taking about a week.
Canadian orders are 2-3 business days.

European and Australian orders are taking 4-6 weeks! Now, this is mainly because I list my items with the least expensive shipping method. If someone wants to pay $25.00-$30.00 more I can create an expedited shipping listing and your order should reach you in about a week. You would need to convos me that you would like me to do this for you.

Hope this helps.
Refunds and Exchanges
Please be thoughtful when you choose to order. If something arrives and it is not what you expected you may exchange it against something else in my line. In this case you would have to pay the return postage and the postage for this new arrival. If you really. really do not want the item or any other Karen Gunna item then it may be returned but I with hold a 20% restocking fee.
If your item is defective -that is a different story and once it has been returned I would do a complete refund.
I do find most of us are quite reasonable so the main thing is to get into communication mode and we'll figure things out.
