The Story...

Fullgive Leather was born in 2009 when I quit my sales job and started making belts in my bedroom shop. Being self-taught in the art of leatherwork is the foundation of my original approach. Creating unconventional designs by pairing hand-dyed leather and REpurposed hardware is fullgive's signature style. It's always been my passion to create, and now it's time to share that passion with everyone.

The Project...

The goal is to make my new product line out of top-quality leather that is made here in the USA!

Due to minimum order requirements, buying the amount of leather I need is simply out of my budget. Allow me to create the best leather goods from the finest US-sourced leather by backing this project.

Why Support?

   // Be a part of the "Made in the USA" culture by supporting a local craftsman.

   // Support leather that is tanned and sourced here in the USA.

The Reviews

"Scott did a beautiful job on my custom bag. I feel like I have a great and unique bag that was made by a real craftsman."

John P. -Etsy

"I like this way too much—you cannot teach this kind of sensibility."

Kate S. -Etsy

"My husband loves it! Well constructed and just excellent craftsmanship. He's already received several compliments on it. Thank you!"

Tara B. -Etsy

Lifetime Guarantee

It's easy to offer a guarantee on a product that is well made. If you experience any problem with the materials or craftsmanship, simply send it back and we will repair or replace it. 

Stretch Goal

With any extra funds, I want to buy a sewing machine specifically made for leather working. For the last 20 years I've used a basic industrial type. Although it's my bread and butter, this basic model has held back my creativity—it simply cannot produce some of the shapes and sizes I’ve envisioned. A specialized machine would be an amazing addition, allowing me to create the new ideas and products I've only imagined.

Risks and challenges

Since 2009 I have made hundreds of leather goods for people across the globe and am quite familiar with the demands of hand making items, including: production time requirements, sourcing and purchasing of materials, packaging and shipping. This is already my full-time job!

Knowing that the project may get overfunded, I have overestimated the time required to complete the rewards. The benefit of the lengthened timeline is that I hand make every piece. Each holiday season I enlist friends and family to help with my extra work load; these same people have already committed to help me see this project through to completion.

Another challenge could be a delay in receiving materials from my suppliers. To avoid this, I have already developed relationships with them and placed preliminary orders for the required components. There is always the risk that parts could be delayed, but regardless I will keep everyone up to speed on the production status of their orders and any other pertinent information.

I am confident that with your backing I can take Fullgive Leather to the next level of creative design and production so that even more people can be inspired to "live passionately”.
