Krik’s ground pad is super nice! It’s thick and sure to stand up to the test of time. Excellent stitching and he uses quality materials. This is the 2nd item that I have purchased from him. I highly recommend his stuff!

New in the shop - Waxed Canvas and Wool ground pads! The waxed canvas offers water repellency, while the wood adds a layer of warmth. The wool is made by Woolrich, and is used on their Classic Hunt Coat. Very dense and an iconic pattern.

About

My journey into leatherwork began after I had surgery on my foot. I needed a new hobby during my recovery and healing time. But I never thought I would take to leatherwork like I have. There's something very special about making a handmade leather good. And I do my best to honor the animal - after all, leather is the skin of an animal. But through careful design, material choice, and construction I create items that, with care, will last longer than me. I find that very humbling. And leather is very unforgiving - you can't hide any mistakes. I have learned so much about patience through leather. I must have a clear head (and complete focus) when I start a project, otherwise I can make mistakes and potentially ruin high quality leather. And that's not good for anyone.

So thank you for taking the time to visit my store! I have a lot of fun designing and creating these utilitarian pieces of art.
