Announcement   I am Lisa Maria Cantalupo and I make beautiful things with leather ~ art you can wear. Recently, Boston Voyager Magazine featured me as part of their Inspiring Stories Series! You can read that here: http://bostonvoyager.com/interview/meet-lisa-maria-cantalupo-lisa-m-cantalupo-somersworth-new-hampshire/

Welcome to my leather shop, my life, my love and passion ~ my art!

Most of the leather pieces and clothing items you will find in my shop are African inspired, tribal and bohemian in flare, with a twist of high-end fashion. Every one of my designs are original and all patterns and products are made to order in my Somersworth, NH shop, and with my own two hands.

The details are never overlooked; intricately hand-woven leather, lux hand-braiding, lots of hand-cut, trimmed, and fluffed-out fringe to bring out the personality of the leather, cool looking hardware, and my newfound passion for handmade beads all the way from Africa. I strive to bring you excellence, always and in everything.

Because I make my leather goodies fresh and as ordered, I am able to purchase leather hides as there is a need for them. I am careful how and where I make my cuts so almost every bit of the hide is used, even the less desirable pieces I save and use for my product hang tags. I have very little leather waste and I'm proud of that!

Before my goodies are shipped off to you, each and every piece is cleaned, conditioned, polished and inspected prior to. I guarantee my workmanship and work hard to give you the very best finished product I am able. My goal is for you to love my Skins so much that you never want to take it off...ever.

I still make and sell some earlier pieces so if you've been a customer since the beginning (thank you!!!), your favorite pieces may still be in the line up. If not, please contact me - I may be able to accommodate you!

About

Leather Art and a Soulful Metamorphosis

In 2006, sparked from my passion for riding my motorcycle and for my love for leather, my riding buddy and I joined forces and started a small leather business named, Sexy Skins Leather. We designed and created leather garments and accessories geared toward the motorcycle industry.

Since the early Sexy Skins years, my love and passion for leather has deepened and evolved into an art; handcrafted and custom leather jewelry, accessories, and leather clothing inspired from a love of everything African.

You may be wondering how such a transformation, from biker to Africa, is able to take place. Well, beginning around the same time of Sexy Skins' inception, the Universe began to gift me many life altering experiences which created some of the most significant challenges that ultimately brought me to my knees. Humbled, lost and alone with two children to raise I drew strength from a power much greater then self and I surrendered - I became a vessel - it was my love and passion for creating with leather that helped to save my soul from being crushed under the weight. Somehow during the fall and rise, a buried passion from my youth for a continent across the world was revealed.

Then wouldn't you know it, the Universe would place in my path something I wasn't looking for at all; an awakened soul in the form of an African man from the Nuer Tribe who has given me the gift of healing wounds that were buried so deep I wasn't even aware they existed. A friendship that transcends time, travel, tribe, color, age, and religion. Love in its purest form. Needless to say, my life, my being, and my essence are forever changed much like the caterpillar who metamorphosis into a magnificent and beautiful butterfly.

Today, my life's purpose is about connection of body, mind, and spirit; between the artist, me, and the wearer, you. It is about the freedom experienced when we release ego and give ourselves permission to “be". A space where I am free to create pieces from the depths of my soul - pieces that will hopefully inspire your's to sing in it's own unique way...so that we all may experience life as a butterfly.

Thank you for taking the time to learn more about me and the evolution of my art and self.

Love, Peace, and Blessings,

Lisa

Frequently asked questions

When will my order ship?

Ship dates are noted during the check out process are estimated and set based upon the longest amount of time required to make that particular piece. In most cases, you will receive your order well before that date.

PLEASE let me know if you desire or need it sooner - I will do my very best to accommodate you.

CUSTOM ORDERS require additional time for delivery because I believe in personalized service and work with each customer individually to provide the best design and the best fit. Please contact me for more information.

How long does shipping take?

Please make sure all SHIP TO information is accurate before placing your order. I am not responsible for packages that are lost in shipment.

Production time varies from item to item. Below is an estimation of delivery times via USPS:

USA
Standard First Class: 3-5 business days
Priority Mail: 2-3 business days
Priority Express Mail:1-2 business days

International:
10 to 14 days from ship date, but can sometimes take as long as 6-8 weeks depending on location and customs.

Rush shipping upgrades are available in your cart at checkout. Please remember that the transit times listed only estimates and not guaranteed.

If you need your order by a specific date, please let me know prior to ordering. I will do my very best to accommodate you.

What is custom designing and do you give estimates over the phone or by email?

Custom designing is when I create a design especially for you; your specific needs and desires, taste and style. I make a pattern which is tailored to your body using your measurements. I gather samples of leather; any type, texture, color. It can be your vision, or my vision for you.

I will give estimate ranges over the phone or email once I have the details of your project, i.e. photographs, sketches, style, size, time frame, etc. You may send your information to lisa@lisacantalupo.com or convo me on etsy.

An exact estimate of your project is given once we have committed to working together; a design contract is signed and a $150.00 design fee is paid (it will be applied to the balance of your order).

Contact me for more information.

Can I customize Made-to-Order clothing?

Sure can! Just follow the instructions below:

1. Check out the color and size charts in each listing.
2. Make your selections in the drop down boxes.
3. For the best fit, record your measurements (bust and cup size, waist, and hips) in the comments section during checkout. For help with taking accurate body measurements, https://lisacantalupo.com/pages/how-to-measure
4. If you would like to make small changes such as; close the tummy, more coverage on the back, let me know in the notes to seller section during checkout.
5. Make your purchase (record any extra info in the "comments" section at time of checkout).
6. Sit back and watch for your confirmation email.

Orders are processed in the order which they are received.

Items which are ALTERED or CHANGED in any way to suit you cannot be returned. Returns are accepted on UNWORN merchandise ONLY. I inspect, clean and condition all items before they're shipped - natural markings DO NOT constitute reason for a return or exchange.

Please REPACKAGE THE ITEM IN ITS ORIGINAL PACKAGING or equivalent.
