About

The Fall and Rise of Vilon Leather

Vilon Leather started as a hobby back in my late teens. Growing up, I’d always been artistic, often drawing or writing to pass the time. I’ve created countless pages of art, poetry, painting, and lyrics during my lifetime, and I don’t plan on stopping anytime soon! Currently my leather studio has been integrated into my bedroom, and all production from concept design, to branding, to marketing, is run out of an apartment home I share with friends and family.

My business has survived through several major life events, including car accidents and a house fire since it’s inception in 2009. We are systematically switching over to ready-to-ship items only, which is soon to make us one of the fastest shippers worldwide. Soon most of our products will be packaged and shipped same to next day!

In other news, I co-authored my first published novel entitled "The Grove" a couple years ago. After 10 years, Jennifer and I are no longer together, but you can still find our story here on Amazon: http://amzn.to/2kAg4Zb

Through it all, I beat chronic pain by doing yoga and staying active. I practice Buddhism, altruistic beliefs, and integrate my spiritual roots into my art. I remember the good times, making new ones when I can, because I know that if I love everything from my successes to my failures, I will find a hidden trove of happiness with each new challenge.

In the meantime I’m dreaming of a small home in nature where I can build a family and live a simple life, rich with appreciation for art and our ever-expanding universe. In my spare time I enjoy playing acoustic guitar, nature walks, and photography, traditional art, and playing with my dog, Maggie (a German Shepherd/Lab mix).

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

I love doing custom art on my products! Everything you see is either hand carved or hand stamped. I don't use any laser cutters or engravers. Want a hawk carved into a bi-fold wallet? Or a portrait of your dog? The landscape photo from your last vacation? Send me the photo and I'll let you know if I can do it. I can stamp lettering into most anything. Phrases, Monograms, initials, you name it!

Sizing details

Please refer to the photo in the listing on how to order proper sizing for applicable products. We promise if you measure your wrist correctly that the band is guaranteed to fit. Contact us if it's a gift and we'll help you determine sizing. Any other questions? Contact me.

Care instructions

All of our products are made of genuine leather. They should last you a lifetime with little to no maintenance (normal wear and tear). Leather balm with atom wax can be applied from time to time on veg-tan products to reseal, polish, and shine!

Gift wrapping and packaging

Our items are gifted in organza bags (when applicable), and packaged with tissue paper. Watch boxes coming soon!

How-To: Wind Your Watch

1. Pull out the dial and set the time, moving clockwise.
2. Push the dial back in.
3. Turn the dial back 15-20 times (do not wind it up tight or you risk breaking the spring).

Enjoy!

Additional Policies and FAQs

Vilon Leather offers a 1-year warranty on all of our handmade leather goods. This means we guarantee that our craftsmanship is free from manufacturing defects. Warranty covers the original purchaser. Contact us (at VilonLeather@gmail.com) in the unusual case that your item develops an abnormality. Please include pictures and details in your message. We reserve the right to offer repair, exchange for same or similar item, or full refund. This warranty doesn't cover any damages, including but not limited to: normal wear and tear, neglect, accidents or misuse, changes in color (this is natural), water or incidental damages. That said, leather is a natural material, and as with all handmade goods, there may be minor imperfections.
