My Story.

People ask me how I became interested in leather working.  The story is that my brother came to me one day and asked if it interested me.  Why?  Because he wanted to be a blacksmith and make knives, daggers, and other weapons and was going to need someone to make the leather sheathes.  So in 2011 I began to research the whole idea. Two years later I’m in the leather working business and my brother never did become a blacksmith.

April of 2013 I quit my construction job and moved to downtown Pittsburgh to officially start my leather working business called “Wolves Leather”. I really enjoy working with my hands where I can create a quality product for everyday use.  All of my products are my own design and are all made by hand including the stitching.

Everyone benefits from quality products which is why I strive to craft the best leather goods that I can so that they will be used enjoyed for years to come. Today I have my dad's leather coat he wore 40 years ago and I have my grandfather's leather boots he wore 60 years ago.  A leather product can be passed on from generation to generation giving it amazing sentimental value, which is priceless.

WHY I NEED YOUR HELP.

Because I am currently running Wolves Leather on a very small budget, I can only purchase the supplies needed for current orders.  I need to be able to have supplies on hand that will make filling orders so much easier. Bigger than that is having the supplies to create the many new designs I have in my head. I also need to be able to market and advertise properly along with having the ability to enter art festivals.  I would love to some day take my products around the world through art festivals. People are looking for what I offer - heirloom quality leather products for everyday use.  My hope with this Kickstarter Project is to give Wolves Leather the financial base to maintain the needed materials for the demand along with expanding through more marketing.

MY GOAL is to raise $2,500 in 30 DAYS!

The proceeds will be used to purchase materials, a few tools, and marketing supplies.

For example.

A supply of stoned oil cowhide leather which is tanned with waxes and oils that gives it that "Old World" effect or "Aged" look.

Banners, flyers, posters, business cards, etc.

Here are sketches of some new products I will be working on once the kickstarter is done!

 Please contact me if you have any questions at WolvesLeather@gmail.com

Risks and challenges

A possible challenge I can foresee is getting all the orders completed on time, however, I am committed to fulfilling every pledge and also keeping an open dialog with my backers. This includes updates, challenges, & answering all questions.
