Leatherwork Through the Ages

Researching and Recreating Historical Leather Items

This site is intended to give information on leather items and their recreation through the ages from the Egyptian through the Roman to the Baroque era (at the moment ;-) )


If you interested in following the progress of the things I'm working on please visit




Since I have been asked repeatedly: yes, I do make various items to order, depending on how far real life permits. Feel free to contact me for more information through the Ask a Question section if you are interested.

Disclaimer: I'm not a historian, archaeologist, shoemaker nor leatherworker by profession, so do not take anything you find here for granted. Except maybe when I’m citing somebody else.
