  1. 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
  2. Hi everyone, This is my first post here on the forum, so I apologize if I didn’t put this in the right place. Sorry for the length, I just want to give all the info I can to get the best advice. Thanks in advance for your time! I recently picked up a side of matte-ish black Horween Essex for a custom tote order. The tote was made and shipped and I started using the rest of the side for a crossbody bag with an alligator flap. I checked in yesterday with the tote customer to make sure she was happy and she said she was, but she’d noticed that the color was rubbing off on her white pants. She didn’t have this problem with her first tote from me last year and I’ve never had this problem in the 3 years I’ve been working with Essex so I was surprised. Out of curiosity, I went over to the alligator and Essex bag that I just finished up and rubbed it with a scrap of light colored T-shirt and sure enough quite a bit of color came off. Obviously, I’m concerned that not only does a customer have a tote that’s leaving color on her clothes, but in the meantime I have just finished an expensive, fairly time consuming hand-stitched bag (my first using alligator) that’ll be rubbing on someone’s shoulder and hip. I can’t have it leaving big black marks on someone’s clothes. I wouldn’t even try and sell it if I know that’s a possibility. Now that the bag is done, what can I do to try and seal it? The edges are all painted with Vernis edge paint so I’m nervous about getting any kind of solvent on them and having that turn into a big mess. I tried buffing the whole bag with a soft cloth to remove excess color, but the color transfer hasn’t stopped. I thought about using Resolene, but I’m concerned about (a) being able to apply it consistently and not having it gum up since it’s all finished and 3-D and not an easy flat surface and (b) won’t it make the matte black really look shiny and plastic-y? I liked the way it looked before with the soft finish. It made the gray alligator flap pop. Lastly, does it work well on leathers with soft-medium tempers. I’ve used it on heavy veg tan work but not this kind of thing. I can’t afford to experiment with stuff that “might” work, because if it works on a flat scrap and not on the finished 3-D bag, the whole thing’s wasted. Is there any way to salvage it? I loved the way it turned out and would really appreciate any advice. I’d also like to be able to help the tote customer so she’s not stuck with a bag that ruins her clothes. She’s in a different state, so if you have a product in mind that she could buy separately and apply as a non leather worker that’s even better. Thanks again! -Hannah

    Exotic Leather In Canada?

    Just moved to Toronto from the US recently and have been looking for a source for exotic leathers, specifically alligator/croc/python. Many online retailers from the US will not ship to Canada unless you place a large order due to all the paperwork involved. Does anyone know of an exotic leather supplier already in Canada, or of a supplier overseas who will deal in small quantities? Thanks in advance.
  4. I got some alligator scraps on eBay with the intent of making a few small items. I also got some alligator printed leather from Tandy and took a crack at that. Can you guess which one is the real gator? I think they came out pretty nice for a newbie. I can't decide what friend i'm going to gift these to.
  5. I've been tinkering with my Landis splitter trying to get it to split soft French goat. It's hit or miss but it worked well enough yesterday to do a fully lined 3 pocket cardholder. I hand skived the alligator to thin it down some and lined them with the .5mm blue goat. The larger blue goat pieces are split and lined with gray Split French goat from Talas Online. It's saddle stitched with Lin Cable, pricked with a Blanchard 9 iron. Edges are painted with Fenice. It measures 4.25 x 2.75.
  6. 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
  7. It started as a damascus blade blank from a local knife show (1095 & 15n20), 5" blade: Then I added leather scales (horse butt?): Then wrapped in alligator and fastened the scales, and started the sheath with 5.5oz leather: And N52 magnets: I designed the sheath so the knife could fit in facing either direction: Wrapped in alligator: And stitched together, attatch strap, and done: The strap is attached with a chicago screw and it swivels, so I can wear it IWB or OWB. Yes, it took a very long time, but if I did it again it would be much quicker next time, now that I have some clue what I'm doing. This was my first knife handle, and first sheath.
  8. Latigo & Alligator Field Notes, hand stitched.
  9. This morning I thought I would take pictures as I make a new watch strap for my Samsung Smart watch. Unfortunately, my phone takes 10mb pictures and after emailing them to myself, I have to move them into photoshop and decrease them in size, which is taking quite a bit of time. The whole process should take between 4 and 6 hours for one of these. However, I don't think I'll hit that mark today. I'll keep you posted.
  10. Here are some of the holsters I've done over the years. As I go through and resize my pictures, I'll add more.
  11. I have the below 13 skins for sale. I'm selling them as a lot- not individually. They are each about 28" long, 2"-3" wide. In addition to the full skins I'll throw in the scrap pile. $85+ shipping - email me if you'd like 'em. Rachael@heavyleathernyc.com

    Baby Alligator Skins for Sale

    I have the below 13 skins for sale. I'm selling them as a lot- not individually. They are each about 28" long, 2"-3" wide. In addition to the full skins I'll throw in the scrap pile. $85+ shipping - email me if you'd like 'em. Rachael@heavyleathernyc.com
  13. 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
  14. Working on an alligator watch roll for a customer. Still in progress, but will post as I go along.
  15. Genuine Gator (still has the hunting tag attached to the skins). Whoever tanned and finished this material did a great job, most of it is usable and feels like butter, cuts well and really easy to work with. I have 4 skins in the shop and three are like this one, the other not so much, stiff, hard to cut, very little usable. A good tannery/finisher is imperative for working with this stuff. Interior is glazed pigskin, and a faille cloth liner on the wallet back. Chief

  17. Hello, I am seeking a capable craftsman to make high quality alligator leather phone case wallets to sell at my high end retail location in Los Angeles.
  18. I was recently asked by a friend to make him something with alligator skin. I've never worked with this material before, but I was pleasantly surprised by how beautiful it can look blended in with other projects. Not sure if you would agree, but I thought I'd share some photos of the bag in case anyone else is interested in getting creative with exotic skins like alligator. Also the skin I used in this piece is from a fresh water alligator's tail piece. I got some of my design ideas from a Japanese artists piece and some of my own experimentation.

    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
  20. A customer has asked me to make him a wallet out of alligator skin. This will be my 1st time to work with alligator skin. I have purchased a nice grade of freshwater alligator skin for the build. Since alligator skin is somewhat thin, should i wrap the alligator skin around another piece of 1.4mm leather for added strength? I also usually work with thicker hides, like 2.4mm and therefore use a thick waxed thread when saddle stitching. For alligator skin what kind of thread would you recommend I use? Any other tips you can offer to help before I get to work on this build would be greatly appreciated. I'd hate to ruin a single inch of this stuff, it's expensive$$$! Thanks!
  21. Hello, I am looking for someone who can repair zippers on a pool stick case that is made of alligator skin. It is my husband's and he has tried to get it repaired before, but with no luck. He has not found anyone with the skill to be able to take on the project. Please contact me if you are, or if you know of someone who is, a leatherworker who can work with exotic skins like alligator. I don't have a picture of the case currently, but can provide one if needed. Thanks!
  22. I am going to make myself a new wallet and want to use this gator hide I just bought. I'd like to use the head area but it will go into the shoulder/leg area of the hide. I may need to use a flatter area, like behind the shoulder. It would make more waste in the long run. Do you think I can glue it flat. I have used rubber cement on a pound-o-board to line things up in the past but I don't know if it will last once it is permanently glued to the backing. What do you guys think. Any and all thoughts welcome. Thanks, Ken
  23. Hello all, I have been working with some very nice leathers over the years, and now I am working some exotics into my line. Does anyone have a source for high quality alligator or crocodile in the US? Looking for a variety of colors particularly browns and tans. I don't mind buying from overseas, but I would much rather buy from the US. Price is not as big a concern as the quality and colors available. I am willing to pay a little more if the product is high quality. Any help or leads would be greatly appreciated! Cheers and thanks in advance, David

    Baby Crocodile Skins

    I have hundreds of skins of small/baby alligator or crocodile, I am not sure which. They were left over from an old project and I'm hoping someone can help me figure out exactly what I own and how much it is worth and where is the best outlet to sell them. I have 5 different colors. They vary in size but are all approx. 25" long and 2-3" at the widest part. Thanks!
