Learn more about Tina's Leather Crafts and how your leather item is made below:

As I have been hand-carving, hand-tooling and hand stamping leather for over 6 years, I have the leathercrafting skills that can only be gained over time and with practice. I also come from a long line of leather workers as my father and many of my uncles and great uncles worked with leather as my local area is very well-known for it. Therefore, with this heritage you can be sure my leather products are not mass produced, machine stamped or embossed. This also gives these leather goods the lovely smell, feel, charm and unique character which can only be gained from leather products which are truly handcrafted to last and enjoy for years to come.

You have a wide choice of leather key fobs, bookmarks, comb cases and other items so there is always a leather gift to suit everyone. Also, there are now leather gift sets available which make it even easier to find the ideal gift.

Leather items can also make wonderful romantic gifts between couples for a wedding anniversary (especially a leather anniversary). The leather bracelets are made of premium quality leather and are very comfortable to wear. There is a large selection of bracelet designs to choose from and they vary from wide leather cuffs to narrow leather bracelets. All of the leather products in this shop are stylish and practical which is ideal when bought either as a gift for someone else or as a treat for yourself!!

Tina's Leather Craft products are made from vegetable tanned leather, a natural tanning process involving natural materials (eg. tree bark and leaves) which often imbues the leather with a firmer feel making the leather product more durable. Vegetable tanned leather has amazing qualities and it will take in colours and shine to become an extremely personal product with a lot of character. A piece will become uniquely yours after a very short amount of time.

The high quality leather is cut by hand. If the design is to be hand carved, the design is carefully traced onto the leather. The design is then hand-carved, hand-tooled or hand-stamped. The hole punching is done by hand one hole at a time. The snaps, rivets or other hardware are also fitted by hand. If applicable the item is stitched or laced by hand. The natural leather is hand dyed using old-school dying techniques (with eco-friendly products) to accentuate the full grain, colour variances and natural imperfections of each hide. The beautiful rich leather is also hand burnished. Each piece is unique as it is individually handcrafted and no two pieces are identical.

The leather wallets are handcrafted from one of the finest premium quality hand carving leathers available as it has the lovely smell and feel of high quality leather. Many of the leather wallets and purses have intricate hand-carving and are hand-stitched and hand-laced as no sewing machines are ever used.

Very unusually, the leather interiors of the wallets are also handmade and there is a variety of credit card layouts. The leather of the wallet interior is cut by hand from high quality leather and hand stitched with waxed linen thread. This process takes skill and is very time consuming but it means the leather wallet has far more character. These leather wallets, which are gift boxed, are timeless and make a real statement.

Thank you for shopping at Tina's Leather Crafts (T.L.C) for Leather Goods Handmade with Tender Loving Care!!

Frequently asked questions
Shipping methods

I ship packages every business day.

Combined postage is always available for more than one item.

I use First Class Royal Mail for UK orders.

I use Royal Mail International Standard (Air Mail) for overseas orders. Sometimes delivery may take longer than expected due to customs delays. USPS can be especially slow in processing international items during busy times (and particularly over the Christmas Holidays).

Please let me know via Etsy if your parcel is late so I can start making enquiries for you, but please be patient as usually packages do arrive. Refunds cannot be given for items that do not arrive by a certain date as this is beyond my control.

Gift wrapping and packaging

All orders come wrapped and ready for gifting.

I can also send any item that is bought as a gift directly to the recipient's address.

If you'd like an additional handwritten note added to your order, please feel free to contact me to add one to the package at no additional charge!!

Further details on refunds and returns

A package cannot be declared lost and a full refund given until after 15 business days to allow for delayed delivery in the UK and 50 days from the order date for an overseas package. If your parcel looks like it may be missing, do not worry unduly as I will fully refund you if the parcel fails to arrive.

If returning an item please complete and attach a C22 custom declaration label to the package and clearly mark it as "Return Goods" or tick the box "Other" and state "Return Item". Please do not mark it as a commercial sample as failure to do the above may mean I am unable to issue a refund.

Refunds for returns will be for the price of the item only, not including the original shipping costs, unless there is a defect in workmanship.

One of a Kind

Handmade leather goods are truly "one of kind". Each hide of leather can vary greatly due to the thickness of the skin and wil have its own individual, natural markings, scratches and different tones making each piece unique and special.

Each piece of leather will absorb the dye in its own way so you should not expect two similar items to look or feel the same so products will be similar to the photos but with variances in shade.

As they are all made with love and two human hands, the hand stamped lettering will never be machine-straight and may not be perfectly centred. However, this gives handmade goods their individual charm.

Design and size may vary and all measurements are approximate as each item is individually made by hand.

Made To Order Items and Care Instructions

Made To Order items need to be paid for before work commences.

Leather can only be stamped on the front as the back is suede-like and you would be able to see the stamping impressions from the front.

Made To Order items have to be made from scratch and the design cannot be changed after the dye and leather finish have been applied.

Leather is a natural skin and is not water-resistant. Water will be absorbed by untreated leather and it will stain. My leather items are all treated with a water-resistant leather finish which will help the leather item resist a couple of drops here and there. However, if the leather item gets too wet, the finish will not be able to protect it. So you should always be careful around water.
