Custom Orders- Start to Finish

It's been a while since our last post... our shop has been keeping us pretty busy. Over the past few months we've had a lot of custom order requests, thank you to all of our customers. We thought it would be fun to show you some of the process of what we do from start to finish.

The beginning...
All of our leather comes in a whole skin about 12-18 ft with awesome raw edges. We then choose which leather would be appropriate for the piece were making. All leather is different in weight (oz.), texture and function. We always use high end garment leathers like; elk, deer, buffalo and some bull hide for certain creations.

The lace starts out as a 6 inch circle and is hand cut to the appropriate width for the piece. After the lace is cut, patterns are cut and we create our piece! All of our leather work is handmade, cut, laced and designed by us.

Here's a few samples of some of our custom orders these past few months;

Elk skin book cover...

Deer hide leather cuffs...

Elk hide purse...

We love being able to create that one of a kind piece your looking for. Thanks to our Etsy customers!

Custom Cuffs For Gabrea

Thank you for believing in our work and letting us create these special pieces for you!!  Much love & peace from both of us!

"The leather hand made cuffs I received from Cloudfeather were not only luxury and high quality, but made for rock and rollers, by rock and rollers. I have known Donna and Mike for years, and their design sense and artistry is born of years loving Music, Art and the Rock n' Roll culture they live in. They are the real deal, as are their products." - Gabbi Villarrubia, Sayulita Mexico

Our New Leather Shop on Etsy

Hello and welcome to our Cloudfeather Leather Shop Blog! We started this blog to let people know who we are and keep everyone up to date with our newsletters, designs, and upcoming events.

About Us:
We started a small handmade leather business on Etsy in March 2009. We're husband & wife leather crafter's with a passion for music, fashion, art and things handmade. My husband is a Rock-n-Roll Blues musician and has a background in fashion and design. As for myself, I'm a longtime crafter with a background in sewing, jewelry making, design and art. Together we've created our vision of unique leather goods that we call "wearable art".  We specialize in creating unique handmade leather Jewelry, Accessories & Apparel. *Handmade in the USA*

Our designs are inspired by Native American traditions, Rock n Roll culture and our love for 
the 60's and 70's era. We strive to make wearable modern day pieces that still reflect our inspirations. All leather and exotic materials are high quality and hand selected. Everything is designed, cut, stitched and worked by hand resulting in a one of a kind piece. All Beads and buttons are made out of natural materials such as sterling silver, bone, ceramic, glass, stone, metal, shell and wood.  Most of our pendants used in our necklaces are antique Tibetan pieces and are very unique.

Omawnakw, a Native American Hopi Indian name meaning, Cloudfeather.  Our  shop is named Cloudfeather after part of our Native American heritage, traditions and is inspired by our Native American wedding ceremony. 

Coming Soon... were launching our new website for our site, Fall 2009! You can currently shop with us at our Etsy site at:
