Here’s my latest Hand tooled leather leash ready for this show season. If you were wondering where I am located the answer is New Castle Delaware USA. 60 seconds from Delaware Memorial Bridge.
This leash is 1″ wide and has 40+” of tooling, all hand stitched with edges burnished to perfection. Oiled, airbrushed in multiple layers of British tan finally a top poly type finish. All leather articles require an ongoing maintenance regime ie. A quality leather conditioner/dressing assists removing dirt, replenishing natural oils etc… I have to say that but this poly finish I use on all projects in addition to a finish that has a UV protecting additive is remarkably adherent. A collar that I just couldn’t get the turquoise color correct ut um…. 5th time was a winner.. After applying finish to one of the scrap yard pieces I soaked into hot water and scrubbed 45 minutes with a stainless steel scrub thing in an attempt to remove finish from collar. I barely breached it. I might as well say I used a hand-held grinder to it and breached the finish. I did this for my knowledge so I could know hands down I am bringing to my clients not just a unique leather item but an heirloom possibly.
Where there it is my friends, my latest leash of which I quickly admit, I am no photographer and shows better than any picture I can take:}
P.S. The leash has a solid brass snap with a brilliant chrome plating. Should anyone have further questions concerning this piece, having a custom-made collar, matching leash, belt and beyond drop a line to –> firstname.lastname@example.org or comment here.
Have a great day everyday!
I have heard that ladies like these leather tie belts. Any truth to this? 23 years working with leather and this is my first tie belt ever created. Here’s my store-> take a look https://www.etsy.com/shop/AcrossLeather/ . I am so used to tooling every piece I normally design it’s never been a thought. A plain black belt? My normal response is, you want a plain black belt go to Kohl’s. Buy three or four while your there. My company name came from me liking to tooled designs across leather and with a little nudge from a gal in Hammonton, NJ and four (4) years later I am still Across Leather creating a plain black leather tie belt embellished with beads from
the only place on the web I get my beads.
Looking for a unique belt as a gift or yourself. Stop in at acrossleather.com If it’s already made it can be in your hands this week.

Leather belts are my favorite creations when it comes to leather. Leather working for 22 years and there are days…, well I feel as a kindergartener to a PhD. With that being said let me get some pictures of my latest>leather belts completed for you to peruse.
