Is the LeatherDOCTOR In or OUT? Let the fairly-accurate Twitter tell you:
BoundAries Leather is a small leather-craft workshop based out of East Side ReRides, the motorcycle leather consignment store. We do repairs – fix zippers, liners, hardware problems (rivets, snaps, buckles) as well as patch holes, redye boots, custom-tailor garments and restore vintage gear! Our custom projects are based on a walk-in basis and open to a huge variety of leatherwork. We’re open to biker, kink, cosplay, alternative, vintage, wholesale, or other needs!
Our main leatherworker is Ariss! They started leather-loving years back and have grown from a simple shoeshiner to learn traditional leathercraft techniques (hand-stitching, wet molding) to practical tailoring needs all the way to full-blown cobbling. They love weird and odd jobs so bring them by!
More about Boundaries Leather
Our workshop started small and has slowly acquired a few more fancy things! We are still focused on carefully handmade items and have lots of hand tools, from hammers to punches to leather stamps – and 4ft of solid Douglas Fir as our thump stump!
Our ‘heavy machinery’:
We have a slew of sewing machines – a walking foot, two patchers, a fabric serger, a fabric domestic; along with a 5-in-1, a cobbling anvil, a shoe stretcher, a vintage (not-yet-working) skiver, and a in-the-process-of-being-set-up hot foil press! Have machines you’re selling? Contact us!
