Announcement   Welcome to Leatherarts! I enjoy combining bright colors, art, leather-crafting, and utility. Every piece is meant to be worn or put to good use. They're not just to look at! All my leather work is hand-tooled and hand-painted. The process involves drawing the design, carving, and tooling to make a permanent three-dimensional image. Then painting and sometimes staining the leather. The paint is long-lasting and is covered with a protective sheen. I also have a jewelry shop: silverhollyhocks.etsy.com

If you want something different, bright, durable, and obviously handmade--then leatherarts is for you!

Custom orders: I will consider special requests. If you see something in my shop that you would like with some changes, such as different colors, I am happy to accommodate. If you want something personal, such as an item with a picture of your pet or a replica of a favorite painting, I will discuss it with you carefully. Special requests of this type are not returnable.

I bought a selection of tags from Kathy as I couldn't choose my favorite and they are FANTASTIC. I have traveled with them on a large around the world trip now and they held up really well and I always knew which bag was mine. She even posted them to arrive in Australia express at her own expense - So kind! She is super talented and I would recommend her products to anyone.

About

I have always loved handmade products. Back in the 90's I found some great belts made in NYC that were tooled with whimsical designs and painted in bright colors. I decided to take a leather class and learn the basics. From there I took off and began making all kinds of leather goods.

It's something I enjoy doing and I'm gratified that I have customers all over the world who buy my products and use them. Customers often give me good ideas, by asking for me to make something that I've never thought of.

I often work on leather while watching television or a movie. I find it hard to just sit without working on something. The chair I use in our den has paints stacked all around and yes, I've spilled lots of paint on the chair!

I have a craft room upstairs where I do the tooling. This requires a solid base, so I have a marble top table that I found in an antique store many years ago. It works perfectly to hammer and tool all my leather work. I store some of my finished work here, as well as lots of leather stain containers, and supplies.

I also have a shop in the back of the house, attached to the garage. I store belts. key fob, and luggage tags here and try to keep them sorted. I've started working on jewelry as well as leather, so this shop houses my jewelry tools and supplies. (See my jewelry shop at silverhollyhocks.etsy.com)

Payment
I accept checks, credit cards, and Paypal. It is customary to pay at the time of the order, but if payment is going to be delayed, please convo me.
Shipping
Domestic shipping: I usually ship within 5 business days. Often I am able to ship the day following the order. If it is a custom order or is out of stock, I will give you an estimated date of shipment. I ship by First Class mail or Priority. If a multiple purchase is made with items being sent to separate addresses, then additional postage may be required.

I insure domestic orders over $40. If a package is lost, the buyer will be expected to cooperate in filling out any required forms to assist in the process of recouping the loss. Then I will either replace the purchased items or give a refund.

International shipping: I ship internationally. I have found that insurance is usually not available. There is a way to send it registered, but it is expensive. I do not have control over the amount of time that international shipping takes. It seems to take 10 days to a month, so please be patient.

UPS and FedEx can provide insurance, but they are both very expensive, sometimes costing more than then the product being shipped.
Refunds and Exchanges
I will accept an item for a refund within 14 days of your receipt in its original, unused condition, with the exception of special orders. (Special orders cannot be returned, as they are made for a specific customer.) Please examine the purchase and make sure you are satisfied before you begin to wear or use it. Do not alter the item, if there is any chance you may want to return it. If the item is used or altered, it cannot be returned. Contact me to let me know that you are requesting a return. The customer will pay the shipping costs and I will refund the unit cost of the item(s).
Additional policies and FAQs
I accept custom orders, so feel free to get in touch.

Wholesale: I can offer a reduction in price for someone interested in wholesale of between 10% to 25%. I keep my prices on Etsy reasonable, so I don't have much margin for lowering prices. There are shops on Etsy with the same items I offer (with different designs, of course) that are up to 60% more than I charge. Wholesale orders start at $250 minimum.
