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 Renaissance era (at the moment ;-) )


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.


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