About this project
" THE LEATHER PROJECT "
How we got started:
Dragon Bait Stew was founded in the heart of the New Orleans French Quarter. Drake Stewart started at a very young age apprenticing in his Godfather Mike Stark's shop. Mike Stark was a famed mask and costume maker, designer and owner of The Little Shop of Fantasy. There Drake learned to sculpt leather and create his own one of a kind works of art. Drake has since grown into an accomplished leather sculptor and has moved into sculpting fulltime creating a plethora of leather items in genres from Fantasy to Steampunk. Briana Stewart, Drake's wife, contributes by decorating, painting and co-designing the final touches on all the products. Drake and Briana use their strength's as artists to give each piece a little touch of madness and love. Collectively Drake and Briana have been creating beautiful works of art for 15 plus years. These wearable works of art consist of hand sculpted leather items you can party in then hang on the wall and admire later.
Our product line includes: Leather Hats in Tall and Mini Top, Fedora, Musketeer and Pirate Hats, Leather Steampunk Goggles, Fantasy Leather Masks and Leather Blinds, Belts, Bags (small, medium and saddle for yourself or your Motorcycle) and Armor to include... cuffs, bracers, shoulders, front and back chest plate, cod piece, cuisses (upper leg guards), and lower leg greaves.
Due to our fabulous prices for Custom handmade pieces we need to take the next step and become a company that can meet a higher demand for our product. In order to not have to charge higher prices we thought we would politely ask...Please...Give us your money! We would like to buy a professional leather sewing machine as our yard sale find sewing machines cause more harm than help. We are literally running this business out of our home basement so we would like to take any additional funds we receive from this project and do a professional photo shoot to upgrade our website photos and create a catalog.
Achieving our GOAL!!!!
Achieving our goal of $3,000.00 would greatly help us take the next step into a more time efficient business model. It would allow us to take on more projects as they will require less time for completion. Our number one goal as a company is helping you fulfill your Costuming Dreams. We want to continue to make that one perfect item that finishes your garb, costume, ensemble or attire. We love what we do and hope you do to :)
