Middle Earth Leather Works
All items are handcrafted at our local workshop out of Syracuse, New York. Everything is made from scratch, including the patterns that we create and develop. Every single stitch belongs to us. If there is something you're interested in, please feel free to contact us regarding availability. There are limitations on materials and what color schemes are available.
Our work is limited.
Our work is our own.
We have no employees.
We do this alone.
