My name is Caleb Hand and
this is Made By Hand Leather.
In 1991, I began LARPing (Live Action Role Playing). I enjoyed making my own costumes. Back then though, I didn't know much about the right tools and materials. In the meantime, I have bettered my skills in costume making and leatherworking.
In 2013, using a play on my last name Hand, I created Made By Hand Leather. I started gathering the proper tools, leather, dyes, and skills. I began to design new items and started selling on Etsy and at renaissance faires. I have to say, there are two very rewarding parts of all of this. I love when I see a person at a LARP or faire wearing/using my creations. The second is hearing reports from customers that they love what they've ordered.
