  1. We have an entire studio/workshop of beautiful custom made leather, high end hardware sourced from Buckle Guy and lots of tools and supplies. We made handcrafted leather and waxed canvas bags and accessories and built a brand that people loved. We are located in Fresno, California. We closed up shop a couple years ago and we still have tons of raw materials. We have kept it all in our insulated and temperature controlled garage for the last couple years. I have been trying to sell everything, and I’ve had some success at selling some stuff but there is still so much left. I need it gone! I don’t want to keep paying to store it and I’m willing to let it go to whoever makes me the best offer. I can’t bear the thought of tossing it all in the trash. We have $22,000 in leather, $6,000 waxed canvas, $5,000 hardware, $5,000 tools, machines and studio supplies. I would love to get $15,000 for ALL of it but I am open to all offers! I built a website to show everything that we have available https://www.leatherandcanvasbusinessforsale.com/ Please reach out with any questions.
  2. Just got back from a trip to Korea. On a day outing in Seoul, we managed to find the neighborhood in the city where leatherwork supplies can be found. It's located on the Western edge of the city, in the neighborhood of Sinseol-dong. Go east of downtown to the Great East Gate (Dongdaemun), where there is a subway stop by the same name. The subway line (line 1) going East from there stops at Dongmyo, and then the stop you want is Sinseol-dong. You can also take a spur of line 2 (the Green line) which terminates at Sinseol-dong. From Sinseol-dong station you need to go up to street level and east to the large intersection, where Choui-ro (east-west) meets Nangye-ro (running north-south). Look at the map below -- follow Nangye-ro SOUTH from the intersection, on the WEST side of the street until you see the smaller road Nangye-ro 27-gil crossing the main street east to west. (You could also get a taxi-driver to drive you to that intersection; as of September 2017 I estimate the taxi fare from the center of Seoul (Seoul station or the downtown palaces) to get here as 4,000 to 10,000 won depending on traffic.) Now you need to turn right and go to the WEST, following Nangye-ro 27-gil. it's not much of a road, more like a wide alley, but don't be fooled. Look at the Google maps road view below -- this is looking NORTH WEST from the intersection of Nangye-ro and Nangye-ro 27-gil. See that blue street sign in the center of the picture? That's what you are looking for. After maybe 50-100 meters you should find the store fronts that sell the stuff you want. Here is a picture of the first one along the line, looking back towards the intersection you just left. It's the small store to the center right, with the silver car in front of it. This first store you see here is full of rivets, decorative and functional. Some map applications in Korea (for smart phones or computers) can use the phone number to locate the store on a map, and the phone number of this shop is 031-528-1626. The other stores start west of this one. Google Maps streetview won't go down there, however. In my 15 minutes of looking I saw at least 3 stores FULL of rivets, grommets, etc. (HUGE bags of them, as well as small ones). One store had nothing but thread, thread, thread and more thread. Leather, buckles, tools, oh my! One store had paint, more sizes of hole punches than I knew existed, needles, thread, templates, and 3 different kinds of stitching ponies (I bought one for 20,000 won). I didn't go very far down the row, but I believe that skivers (big and small) and hides (including tooling) and elec I saw very few stamping and tooling supplies. Lots of leather and hardware, thread and coloring, for bags, clothing, and the like. (skivers, head knives, needles, strap end templates and punches, stitching chisels, etc.
  3. Hello my name is Brent was wondering if someone could make custom sheath folder for a knife I had made. The main folder that holds the knife out stingray and would also like a folder 1 inch wide and 4 inches length made out of toad or shark leather attach them to look like one item on the right side, both in black with a metal belt clip. I will include a drawing of the knife and the pen to help with measurements. my email is hunterbrent@outllook.com Thanks, Brent

  5. Hi Everyone, not long ago I got a sample of Alan Sully goat leather, one in 3 ounce and one and 2 1/2 ounce. I was thinking I’d like to make a medium sized bag with these using reinforcement and was thinking of using Salpa. I noticed that Salpa comes in several different thicknesses including 0.5, 0.6, 0.8 mm. Does anybody have any suggestions on what thickness to use? I was thinking of getting some 0.6 mm but I wasn’t sure if this would provide enough rigidity to the bag. I hesitate with 0.8 because I don’t want it to be really thick in the end. If anybody has any suggestions and experience working with these products I would love to hear your feedback. Thank you!
  6. Hi, I am hoping someone can help me identify an issue with my new cobra class 26 sewing machine. I just received it on Monday and assembled it yesterday, which seemed rather straightforward. I just got the machine turned on and running this morning and am concerned about this loud sound the machine is making while in use. It seems to be coming from under the machine. I reached out to leather machine co. but am awaiting a response. I was hoping someone in the meantime could offer any insight. Please check out the videos. Thank you! IMG_3123 (4).mov
  7. I’m getting ready to start making belts. I have looked at numerous leathers still have not found exactly what I’m looking for. Money is not as much of a concern as quality. I want a single ply belt in the 9 ounce range that is super smooth on the back, scratch resistant, and won’t crack when bent. What leather do you use? I tried splenda BOM leather; it was everything I wanted except for the fact that it cracked when bent. I feel like there has to be something that meets these qualities.

  14. Hello leatherworking enthusiasts! My name is François, I'm 34 years old, originally from Belgium, now based in Lyon, France. My atypical career path has taken me from the benches of biotechnology to the bench of leather craftsmanship, where I strive to marry tradition with innovation. My adventure into the world of leather goods is as singular as the pieces I create. With a degree in biotechnology, I bring scientific precision to my craftsmanship, fusing intellect with creativity. My academic career is a testament to the successful fusion of science and art.My field of expertise extends far beyond traditional leatherwork. From ancient forging to cutlery and jewelry design, I navigate with ease through a variety of disciplines. My portfolio even includes work in the unconventional field of BDSM manufacture, illustrating my willingness to explore the boundaries of my craft.In addition to my studio, I'm also involved as a cultural mediator and journalist. My involvement with the media outlet UAP Check, specializing in unidentified aerial phenomena, geostrategy and scientific innovation, demonstrates my commitment to exploring the unknown. As a journalist, I offer a unique perspective, interweaving elements of history, anthropology and AI to deepen my analyses.As an avowed geek, I find joy in a multitude of hobbies, from history and literature to new technologies and video games. My involvement in martial arts and historical re-enactment further underscores my varied interests, creating a rich canvas that feeds and enriches my artistic creations. In my hands, leather transcends its utilitarian function to become a canvas for artistic expression. My journey from biotechnologist to craftsman illustrates the infinite possibilities that emerge when intellect meets craft. By constantly pushing the boundaries of traditional leatherworking, I remain a shining example of the harmony between science, history and innovation in the world of creative craftsmanship.
  15. hello everyone; I am breaking my head on : HOW TO CARVE INTO WHITE LEATHER? I want to make a handbag which is black and white. The bag shall be white. I can either use soft white leather which has a good finish already on it no not get dirty and then sew carved parts on it. or there is a option of white vegetable leather, where i could carve in it. But it will get for sure very easy dirty with not enough protection. Your advice?? thank you, lg Teresa
  16. ‘Hi all, Im new to this blog and leather sewing in general, bought my first industrial sewing machine few month ago Seiko STH-8BLD-3 very pleased with it, then about month ago bought Durkopp 541 post bed and now looking for cylinder bed machine, I don't do heavy leather its mostly for upholstery and small items but I find my self more relaxed while sewing stuff, I enjoy finding new information and this blog coming up often on google searches for what ever I’m looking for to solve. Thank you all for your input and problem solving guides, I am hoping to also share my experience with you all and hope that someone might learn something from my mistakes.
  17. I dyed one of my best saddles with fiebings pro dye dark brown, and it turned almost black. I’m so sad and it looks hideous. Is there any way to lighten, bleach it or take the dye out? I would love to save it ❤️❤️❤️
  18. Hello, i would like to know the origin of the leather used for the bag in the picture. Mabe pig?
  19. The machine is practically new . It was briefly used to sew leather pillows and it is in excellent condition. It is an industrial machine suitable for leather, synthetics and heavy upholstery fabric. Included is the original Seiko manual and complete set of accessories including bobbins, needles, oil, screw driver set, set of wrenches, zipper, welting and presser feet. The Family Electric Servo Motor model FESM 550-s, 0-3450 RPM, 110V, 550W installation and operation instructions included. The table with a two spool thread holder is used and in good condition. EDITED: (OP Requested Price Change) Price changed to $900 OBO, with local pickup.
  20. I work with Scouts mostly on small projects. I have at most 4 hours to complete all the requirements for the Leatherwork Merit badge. The 1st hour or so is discussions on various related topics and tool demonstrations. So 3 hours is the time they have to complete their projects. Including hand sewing. What can I do to really speed up the drying time between tooling then dying then applying top coat then sewing. There is definitely not enough time to allow the proper time for each of these steps. I normally use Saddle Lac because it dries super fast but if I teach in California I'm not sure I can use it since it's not available for sale there. I've been using the Tandy Professional dyes instead of the All-in-One type of finishes because of the color options. I live in Las Vegas and can leave it in the sun after each step. But there are issues if the weather isn't cooperating, especially if it's windy, and I use fans for indoor classes. I'm wondering about other options available no matter how crazy. Here are some ideas I'm spitballing: Microwave Convection oven Food dehydrator Warming mats like the kind used when starting seeds in the winter Heat lamps or heat emitters like the ones used for reptiles Build something that uses a combination of 2 or more of the above. I don't have any idea how the leather would react to any of the above ideas. We don't want to end up with leather that gets too hard or curls too much I'd like to get you opinions along with any additional ideas you have. Thanks, Dale
  21. I haven't finished anything to show off lately so I thought I'd brag on a few new tools I got from Bruce Johnson Leather Tools. These were always at the lower priority end of my tool buying obsession until I discovered on Facebook that Bruce Johnson is now a dealer for CS Osborne. Concho cutters that actually cut, and dividers I can set and lock. Love 'em! If you need something, and need it quick, check out Bruce's operation at http://www.BruceJohnsonLeather.com

  23. Has anyone shopped at https://buyleatheronline.com/en/ ? Any feedback in terms of the quality? Their prices seem to be very interesting. And given where I am, online is pretty much the only choice.
  24. Hello to the lovely leatherwork community, I joined the forum as my father in law has passed away and I have so many sewing machines machines, presses, leather goods, many of the items I am finding which I have no idea what they are! lol I have about 12 sewing machines, enough shoe lasts, leather, buckles, rivets, hand tools, punch tools and various other items to last a lifetime. The shoe shop was around for 100 years and I know a couple of the machines are 1850's just from a little google search. I am hoping that people will share their knowledge with me so I can make sure the items are given a new home and preserved. Thank you for reading this post.
  25. They're considered "unsalable" and not carried by most leather suppliers (and for good reason), but are the almost point-for-point historical equivalent once a little processing is done for something I need. Any ideas? (Tannery guys? If you're seeing this, I'm serious and I know what I'm asking for.) (Cannot use wet-blue, sorry)
