About

My work is inspired by old-world craftsmanship. I use traditional tools and techniques for my creations. Everything I make is beveled, burnished, stitched, dyed and finished by hand, while being held to a high standard of quality.

Frequently asked questions

What's your average turnaround?

This depends largely on the complexity of your order and where it falls in with other orders that I may be working on at the time. Most items will be completed in 1-3 days, once I get to them. I'm a swift worker, but I don't rush. I take the time necessary to assure that your item(s) are carefully made.

If your order is time sensitive (e.g. birthday/christmas gift) please reach out to me and ask about my current production time.

Sizing details

When measuring your size, please measure to the nearest 1/2 inch. Please do not add or subtract any length for any reason! Items that are made to your size are considered custom items and cannot be returned or exchanged. If you do not own a soft measuring tape, you can use a string and measure it against a ruler.

Measuring your wrists:
Measure the circumference or your wrist at the wrist bone.

Measuring your belt size:
Your belt size is different than your pant size! To accurately measure your belt size, start from the point where the belt folds over the buckle (do not include the buckle itself in this measurement) and measure to the hole that the wearer currently uses. This will likely be several inches more than your pant size.

Care instructions

If you're investing in quality leather goods, you ought to pick up a good leather conditioner to preserve your investment(s). I strongly recommend "Fiebing's Aussie Leather Conditioner" which is what I use to finish many of my products, or any brand of mink or neatsfoot oil.

Shipping policies

I am not responsible for mishandled or lost orders in the mail. All packages can be tracked here on Etsy or via the USPS website. Once an item leaves my hands, it's the responsibility of USPS to deliver it to you undamaged and on time!

International orders: When the package arrives in the destination country, your country's postal service is responsible for handling the package. From that point on you can track the package on your country's website. If they fail to deliver your mail, please file a complaint or a claim with your local post office.

All mail "returned to sender" for any reason can be resent for an additional shipping payment.

Returns & Exchanges Policy

To return or exchange an item(s) please note the following requirements:

- Contact me within 14 days of delivery.
- Mail items back to me within 30 days of delivery.
- Items being returned must be in unused/undamaged condition.
- Items that are on sale or that have been customized cannot be returned or exchanged.

Once I receive your returned item(s) they will be inspected for signs of use/damage. Please understand that items returned used or damaged cannot be re-sold. I will not issue a refund for them. NO EXCEPTIONS!

Items that are returned in unused/undamaged condition will be refunded (item cost + taxes.) All shipping fees are the responsibility of the buyer.
