Wildcraft leather was created out of desire
One of my first wildcrafting belts I sold was to a large scale herbal farmer. She tried it on, fell in love and off it went. When I saw her a year later she told me she used it everyday. I knew then that I wasn't the only person who believed in and loved my belts. Since then I have been lucky to see my leather crafts go to some fantastic owners and homes. Off on their own adventures.
I am self taught, sometimes hysterically. I took me 4 years off bruised fingers and nifty awl work before I noticed in a catalogue a type of lacing needle that completely revolutionized my lacing technique. A while before I switched to kangaroo lacing and oil drummed leather or vegetable tanned leather. It is a fantastically forgiving and a beautiful craft, endless in its improvement and ageless in its relationship to us humans. As in most things in life I find myself motivated by the love of the craft which helps offset the hours in. I price my creations to what I feel is fair and still affordable. I don't know many rich gardening herbalists so feel free to offer trade or barters. One of the most satisfying parts of the process is when I get to decorate with beads the lacing tails, search for antique buttons on ebay and wander through the forest looking for wood beads, buttons and feathers.
