    Lovely leather, very well made. Delivered quickly. This was a repeat purchase, because someone admired my first one so much that I gave it to them.

    A little late due to shipping complications but couldn't be more pleased with the results. The leather is nice and soft for wearing yet strong and durable and it is super easy to strap on, even with belt buckles!

    Wow! I have been a person who uses a strap for 30 years and this one is a blend of aesthetically stunning and functionally intuitive. I love it so far. My partner loves it. Fits great even in my jeans. Go buy it already!

    Beautifully made, soft&sturdy! Hardware good quality and comfortable, shipping was fast and discreet.

    I am 5’7”/38” waist, 160lbs athletic build, not much butt. S/M just fit at the 2nd to last hole on both sides with plenty of space at the back straps.

    Had a hard time deciding between colors so for others who might be on the fence here’s some contrast images. I got purple and it is in the more purple end of the spectrum in warm/natural light, more bluish in shadow/fluorescents. I included a pic of it against a royal blue & a fuschia purple for contrast. Very pretty!

    My only minor reservation was that the shipping mailer it came in had some wear & minor holes on it and the harness was just loose in the bag without any packing. Fortunately no damage!

    Love it and already thinking of getting another color!

    Great quality leather and beautifully made! As a plus size woman I've struggled to find a harness that fit/sits correctly on my body and this one is absolutely perfect. I am in love with it and will definitely be shopping with you again!

    I absolutely love it. The leather used feels amazing and the construction seems top tier. It fits wonderfully and holds well in place while in use, thanks to how adjustable it is. And they were super accomodating in making modifications to the design to better fit my needs.
    I'm looking forward to ordering more from them soon!

About TalismanLeatherNOLA

On Etsy since 2011

We are Talisman Leather. We are a two-person team of artists, and crafters, that believe in hand-making the pieces that we sell. The intention behind our creations is that every piece of wearable art is a lasting part of its wearer’s journey. We want people to feel inspired by the things that they carry with them on a daily basis. A talisman is a physical manifestation of how we want to interact with the world around us. What we at Talisman Leather wish to perpetuate in the modern day is a very conscientious form of consumerism designed around buying products that will stand the test of time. With that in mind we offer a lifetime guarantee on our craftsmanship. Our customers can trust in the durability, and uniqueness of our products. Each piece we make is a combination of our skills, our studies in fine art, craft, culture and spirituality. We incorporate the natural beauty of our supple hides into the products we make and embellish that beauty with various techniques including: hand-stitching, applique, freehand pyrography and beadwork. Our products span a wide and ever expanding range; from simple adornments: cuffs, earrings, patches, to accessories: wallets, journals, belt bags, to utilitarian: backpacks, purses, messenger bags, to clothing: halter tops, vests, skirts, jackets, to elaborate costumes, to kink play pieces: cuffs and collars, unique impact play toys, strap-on harnesses and body harnesses.

The intentional handcrafted nature of our work comes from the local culture of artistry and dedication to fine craftsmanship. We choose to be part of the “slow work” movement in Louisiana because we believe in the heritage and lifestyle of non-disposable products and we use traditional, time honored, construction techniques and incorporate our own creativity in the forms of the work that we make. Our work is inspired by Louisiana. We explore and express the natural environs, as well as regional iconography and cultural traditions through the images that we applique and draw onto our work. We do take care to source leathers that are appropriate and representative of the local environment, as we use large amounts of deerskin, as well as alligator and nutria.
