We love taking on small to large custom projects for whatever your heart desires. We’ve reworked motorcycle gear, made custom kink outfits and BDSM tools, & produced festival and cosplay gear. Chances are if it’s sexy, geeky, or hyper-functional then we’ll want to make it!
How It Works:
For simple strap-based custom leather items, it’s as simple as sending an e-mail with all your dream details and measurements. We’ll agree on a quote and take payment through paypal. Usually we’ll ship within a week of confirming all the details. Easy as that!
For larger items (such as vests, or cosplay outfits), Ariss has got to talk to you first! Come into the store, or e-mail, and tell them what you’re envisioning. They’ll sketch out a design, talk to you about the leather, the lining, the finishing details, and the timeline. Then! We’ll take your measurements for simple, strap-type designs. Once in agreement, we’ll finalize the contract and take a 60% deposit on items, payable by cash, e-transfer, or credit. Usually, a second fitting will be necessary where we’ll then build the item onto you with a heavy leather-weight canvas, making changes to the pattern. This process takes a few weeks, and at the end you’ll have your dream item!

We Do Not Take On:
– cobbling aka heels and soles on boots (alas)
– hand or machine embroidering
– upholstery (couches, seat cushions) – seriously moldy items- misc sewing projects (curtains, ect) – rude customers (seriously, be respectful of the staff or meet the polite wrath of leatherdykes)
Our leather is constantly in rotation. We source locally and from afar. Our stock will always consist of 8 oz natural veg tan, 6-8 oz black oil tan, 8 – 10 oz black belting leather, many light weight aniline and chrome-tanned leathers (black, red, blue, gold, silver, ect), vegan options, lots and lots and lots of scraps. It’s likely we’ll also have some rough-out leathers (suede and nubuck) as well as the occasional exotic (ostrich shins, snakeskin). Craving something specific? Let us know. We’ll find it for you. A note on leather: as a natural product, leather pelts come with finish inconsistencies such as divots, stretch marks, scars, grain variations, etc. We default to cutting around the larger marks and testing all straps for stretch inconsistencies, avoiding the belly area of pelts. Larger or bulk orders can expect to see an ‘off-cut charge’ accounting for these unusable bits. Not sure what all this means? Click here.
We currently stock hardware in silver, chrome, black, bronze. Have a nickel allergy? Don’t fret! We have stainless steel or solid bronze options that are body safe for long-term use.
Want something extra spiffy on your jacket? Studs you say? We’ve got you. We’ll will add custom studs (of all shapes and sizes), rings, chains, buckles, straps, snaps and patches to just about anything. We also custom stamp words or patterns into leather with the options of a gold or silver finish. And! We can custom burn simple designs into some types of leather, just ask us!
Note! That we do not provide patches (you’ve got to bring them) or embroidery (it’s a special fancy machine)!
