A vegan who works with leather.

It doesn’t make a ton of sense to my friends that I am a vegan who also runs a leather shop. But hear me out!

All the leather used at Buckle and Rose is recycled. Basically, everything I work with would have otherwise been thrown away. I get my leather scraps primarily from larger leather workers. Instead of letting this leather material go to waste in a landfill, I turn it into special pieces that will last.

On top of that, I sell and donate my own leather scraps to other leather smiths.

And for my environmentally conscious friends, consider this--leather is a highly sustainable material. Not only will your leather products last for years, they will look even cooler the more worn they become!

You may have seen advertisements out there “vegan leather”, but don’t be fooled. “Vegan leather” is simply *plastic*, which is the scourge of our environment. It is far more environmentally conscious to invest in a single leather piece that will stand the test of time than it is to constantly buy plastic leather that ends up in landfills.

My hope is that your custom recycled leather piece will be with you for years to come!

All my work is custom ordered, made by hand in my basement workshop, and tailored to meet your specifications.

I love to dress up. Not only am I an actor by profession, but I’m also a huge nerd. Cosplaying at local cons and Ren Faires is only of my favorite things to do. But good-looking cosplay can be downright expensive.

Cosplay is for everyone, but the prices I saw from other skilled vendors simply didn’t reflect that. It seemed like good cosplay was only for those with a lot of disposable income.

That’s why I work to keep my prices as reasonable as humanly possible. I am often criticized for selling my ware for too little! But if I can provide quality custom goods and cosplay for more people, then it’s simply worth it.

We all deserve to have nice things and items that spark joy.

Additional policies and FAQs
Leather was the skin of an animal that roamed the world for a while before finally getting to me. As such, each piece of leatherwork is unique. We will do our best to describe and list our pieces with the utmost detail. Please keep in mind that imperfections, discolorations, etc. are part of what makes these pieces one-of-a-kind.
