  1. Well it's been a while since I've posted so I thought Id show you the latest rifle slings I've just wrapped up in the last few weeks. Both slings are made from 8-9oz Hermann Oak veg tanned leather. The oak leaf sling is finished in Eco Flo med. brown antique, and the Snake skin sling is finished in Fiebings med. brown dye, and both were topped off with a coat of neatsfoot oil and aussie. This was my first reptile/exotic skin project, and it was a lot of fun to make. This is an Eastern Diamond Back rattlesnake from South GA.
  2. I closed my handbag business a few years ago, and find I still have a lot of stuff hanging around. I'm not asking much for it- just don't want it to go to the dump! What I have includes a pile of lizard skins, turkey feet, cowboy boot tops, some 1940s alligator pieces, sting rays, and more that I will find as I dig it all out. I can post some photos if there's some interest... Here's a photo of what I made with the boot tops, so you can see what they are like. I have about 30 pounds of them
  3. Hello Everyone, I'm looking for various pieces of exotic leather. I'm a fledgeling watch strap hobbyist, looking for pieces of 1 to 3 square feet. Potentially scraps if 1 inch wide and 6+ inches long. Open to just about any exotics, or bison, shrunken grain leather, or anyhting interesting and with a lot of character. Feel free to get intouch on here, or email directly at moscar80@gmail Thanks!
  4. Wet Forming Exotics

    I just got a snake skin from Tandy on their web specials and am planning to do a holster for a friend. These skins are pretty soft and seem absorbent. I was wondering if there is a process for wet forming leather gear that uses non or less absorbent exotics, on things like holsters. Does the veg tan simply absorb enough to still tool and bone the items, or is there some step I'm not thinking of?
  5. Hi, I wanted to make a mask from some alligator/crocodile hide and I was hoping to wet form it around a form. Is this possible has anyone tried wet forming it? Thank you
  6. We have recently got into making watch rolls. I actually got to take a few pictures during the build so I wanted to share. Here is a link to a video of one of the rolls. https://www.instagram.com/p/BSMGbPNDULH
  7. Selling 45inch long, 16 1/4 inch across the center Black glossy caiman hide. 110cm X 41cm Belly Cut Caiman Hide, Medium Gloss black. Flawless, No holes or scratches. Absolutely beautiful hide, customer changed mind so I'm stuck trying to recoup loss. CONUS shipping free, Asking $125.00 net via PayPal, use "Friends and Family" option OR add 4% for fees. (Far below market value for anything this big)
  8. This bag was designed for an exhibition in Taiwan. I wanted to design a bag that I thought reflected something unique about Taiwan and my experiences living here for the past 20 years. One of the 1st things about Taiwan that grabbed my attention the 1st day I arrived was the swarm of motorbikes that covered the streets. Motorbikes or scooters are by far the preferred form of transportation throughout Taiwan and they vastly outnumber all other forms of transportation on the densely-populated Island. These compact modes of transportation are favored for their convenience in parking and inexpensive maintenance. But as convenient as they are, they are also quite dangerous and it's not uncommon to see accidents daily. I myself have been in 2 over the years, resulting in breaking a shoulder in each accident. I have since thrown in the towel and now drive a car with lots of airbags..! Regardless, these bikes have left a deep impression on my life and so I decided to create a luxury bag built around the properties of a scooter tire. Coming up with a design I really liked that would work well with the shape and weight of the tire was challenging at 1st, but eventually the concept came to life. The 1st challenge I had starting out was finding the right tire for the job. So, I went to a large motorbike shop and to my surprise after hearing about my plans to design a bag out of a tire they began to enthusiastically bring out every tire they had in their collection for me to choose from. This made finding the right tire a whole lot easier and they have my sincerest appreciation..! To make this project a piece of art and not just a bag I wanted to incorporate the use of a variety of exotic leathers, such as horse leather, gazelle fur, and fine Italian tanned leathers on different components of the bag to give it a richly exotic look and feel. To lighten the weight of the bag I have removed any unnecessary rubber from the tire and have used extra thick (3mm thick) Leather to provide the bag with strength and support for the tires shape and weight. Every component you see on the bag was cut, dyed, and stitched together by hand using only traditional techniques... The end result was better than I could have expected! After spending about 2 months coming up with a design I spent about another 50 -60 hours to build the bag itself! Since then I have come up with 3 distinct designs for the tire bag for both larger and smaller tires. If you'd like to see more pictures of this bag and some of my other leather artwork and designs, please visit my page at www.fischerworkshops.com Thanks!!!

  10. This popular folding coin purse design makes for a great leather project. Small enough to conveniently store in your pocket or purse but able to store a large amount of coins in. It also opens up nice and wide so you can get what you need quickly and easily. To add value and beauty to the purse I have used several types of exotic leather for aesthetics through the circular cutout of the purse frame. I have used both alligator skin and gazelle hide as examples for this tutorial. A PDF pattern with a detailed list of leather types, tools, and products used in this project can be downloaded from Fischer Workshops. Just click on the following link to be directed to the download page...Exotic Leather PDF Pattern DownloadI have also published a video tutorial to demonstrate the step by step process I go through in making the purse. The video is only 10 minutes long, but it took me about 2 hours to complete this project. I chose to stain the leather by hand which is the longest process in making the purse. I suppose if you bought pre-stained leather you could finish this project in about an hour. To see the video just click on the link below... Thanks and Enjoy!

  15. Hi folks, Just few of many updates for a last month. One of my favourite keyring so far is this cute 3D turtle. I was made of aniline goat skin in brown colour, hand drawn turtle shell and eyes, also a high gloss finish on the edge, to make it more female attractive. Also few bifold card holders were done. They are still quite popular due to gold calf skin lining, which looks just stunning. I am a fan of contrast stitching, but still have to complete orders with a monotone thread colour to match the colour of the skin. Shown bifold wallets are made of lizard, bull frog, and water snake skins. I was surprised with a bull frog skin. It is very thin, same as snake skin, but extremely durable. I will keep posting updates and pictures from my studio, just need a bit more time
  16. Does anyone know if the lizard, ostrich, alligator remnants on sale on the online outlet store real or fake. They do also have a "genuine caiman flank" for sale, I just didn't know since the other remnants don't say genuine. Thanks
  17. Hello everyone, I am a beginner Watch strap maker who specializes in the oddities and exotic leather types. The leather gets quite expensive and as any leatherworker knows most leather is only available via full sides, tanned pieces and lot orders. I have here below the leftovers of a few orders and custom jobs as I am trying to limit my losses and send the extras out into the world to become something spectacular. I have here only CITES approved pieces, actually it is easier to get guns and drugs into the country than illegal or poached hides. The pieces shown here do not have the tag, but I can provide proof that the piece it came from DOES in fact have CITES numbers and registration. Giraffe and Hippo do not require CITES (they are not a protected species) Giraffe hides come from diseased/dying, injured or problem animals in the Zimbabwe region of Africa. Zambezi Tanners have exclusive Government contracts for Giraffe tanning. Hippo hides come from "problem" Hippos. Hippos are the most dangerous animal in Africa. They kill more humans annually than all other animals combined. I will provide the best size estimate I can, included in every photo is a 12 inch ruler so interested persons can judge for themselves.

  18. I am selling a nice grade 1 ostrich skin. Almond. $350
  19. Hello, I'm a jeweler working on a project making watches, and I am just beginning production on the bands themselves. I would like to work with hen leather, also known as chicken feet, which is a luxury leather in many middle eastern countries but relatively unused here in the United States. I would like to find a leatherworker who would be willing to tan chicken feet (I will attach photos of example work), which would be a similar process to tanning ostrich legs - but much smaller, of course! Vegetable tanning is a must. Any information, thoughts, or ideas would be greatly appreciated. My website is theallwatch.com if you would like to take a look at my designs. Thank you! Joslyn
  20. Exotic Leather On Flatscreen Tv

    Hi folks, I found myself with some free time and can’t really say why but I caught this bug to work with exotic leathers. We just finished a new section of our house and I’d like to do something special for the den area. I'm thinking of wrapping or trimming a flatscreen TV frame in some type of exotic leather - either ostrich, lizard, alligator or python to give you a better idea. My brother happens to own a TV store in Arizona so luckily I’ll have a few TVs to learn on which I am sure I will need! I may also at some point do some other projects with the skins, but for now the TV is just something I’d like to focus on.. Any ideas or suggestions for what sewing machine I should buy? Again, I see myself likely doing more projects in the future with exotic skins - so buying a sewing machine that costs more than it would to have it made by a pro is a nonissue. My concerns are that I’ve never seen something like this before and sewing on a TV obviously near the screen and on top of the plastic… I imagine I would use a layer of cowhide under the exotics. Hoping to get some good advice from the fine experts on this forum and anyone else who wants to chime in. Tell me what you think.. thanks ya'll Buck
  21. Here is an arrow side quiver I made to be raffled off at the United Bowhunters of Missouri Rendezvous that was held last weekend. The body and strap are made from chrome-tanned bison leather and the tan trim is deer. The orange looking leather is caiman as is the black arrowhead. The lettering was done in ring lizard and the scaled leather is tanned carp hide. I carved the buttons from deer antler and the hanging ring from moose antler. Everything was sewn by hand using artificial sinew. This archery arm guard was commissioned by a friend of mine as a birthday present for a hunting buddy of his. It is ostrich leg skin backed with vegetable-tanned cowhide. The trim is deer and I carved the lace hooks from deer antler. Everything was sewn by hand using B-50 bow string material. This is an arm guard that I made for myself. My other arm guard wasn't worn out or anything but I get a hankering for something new every once in a while. I made this one from caiman and backed it with vegetable-tanned cowhide. The arrowhead in the middle is made from ring lizard. The trim is deer and the lace hooks are deer antler. I sewed this one up using artificial sinew. Darren
  22. Hello All. Its been a little while since I posted any projects. Here is an Inside Waist Band (IWB) holster I just finished up that has shark skin accent on the belt loops. The credit for the style of this holster definitely goes to Galco Gunleather. This is my attempt to make an IWB holster similar to one of theirs. I had a heck of a time getting the reinforcement throat wrap figured out and sized right. It does not have any metal or plastic sandwiched between the throat reinforcement wrap and the main holster like some makers use. I am not sure exactly what is used for that. This holster was made from 4-5 ounce leather, hand stitched and wet formed using my kydex press. The kydex press worked pretty good on the thinner leather. Thanks for looking!.......Rory
  23. Wanted Exotic Scraps

    Need exotic scraps to do inlays. Interested in everything. Let me know if you have anything.
  24. As a trapper I remove a lot of nuisance beavers around here for farmers. These are corn fed beavers so some get quite large. I've never found a maket for the tails. I've started to learn leather working. Here is my first go at using something that would otherwise be wasted. I tanned the tail and laminated it onto some 2-3 oz leather. The tails go from thick to thin and so you have to adjust thread tension as you stitch around the case. I was not really sure it would even work so this was an experiment.
  25. Hi there, I am looking for someone self employed to work from their own premises to create a series of small leather and exotic skins to be applied to small electronic items with a high degree of skill and flair. I imagine we will start slowly and carefully but demand is expected to be quite high as the items will be advertised in various publications. Looking to find someone immediately, preferably someone used to working with delicate exotic animal skins etc with good supplier contacts to source higher quality materials etc. Please get in touch immediately if you fit the bill!
