The leatherbug!

Hello, and welcome to my little corner of the big worldwide web! This site is reserved for the wonderfull craft of making beautifull and usefull objects from leather.

Here you will find a number of items for sale, all crafted by myself. All my work is done completely by hand. I dont own a sewing machine. Sewing machines are great tools, and in the hands of skilled operators can produce excellent results. The internet is full of excellent leatherwork, done by using machines. And, lets face it, if you do large numbers or big orders, you can not compete if you do it by hand!

But, you see, I dont wish to compete with anyone. I simply love leatherwork and stitching every project totally by hand gives me complete and absolute control over the quality of my projects. Furthermore, I still believe no machine can match the quality and appearance of proper hand stitching. This is my little niche market. So you may have to wait a week before I ship your order, but this is not really much compared to a lifetime of enjoyment you will get from the item.


All my work is completely covered by my own personal guarantee: ANY DAMAGE TO THE ITEM WILL BE REPAIRED FREE OF CHARGE, EVEN IF THE DAMAGE OCCURRED AS A RESULT OF YOUR OWN DOING! Lets face facts, we all have little mishaps from time to time, and if some damage occurred to your favourite Messenger bag bought from me two years earlier, I would hate to see the bag getting retired into the bottom drawer. Send it to me, and I will see how we can get it back in action. The only condition is that you pay postage both ways.This guarantee is not for any predetermined period of time, as is usually the case but  for as long as I am practicing my craft . 

 Or, when you have received your item and are not completely satisfied with the product as far as materials or workmanship, you can return it within 30 days for a full refund. However, all postage costs will always be your own responsibility.

The guarantee on REIVILO watch straps/bands is very much the same. All damages to your strap that makes it unusable will be repaired free of charge for up to a year from purchase. However, we all know leather watch straps dont last forever. Therefore, after the first year all damaged/worn straps will be replaced at 50% of the then selling price. However for these guarantees to be effective, the damaged straps and buckle must be returned to me. I will re-use your buckle in the new strap- they are stainless steel and nearly indestructible. Once again, you are responsible for the postage to and from me. Alternatively, send me a photo of the damaged strap, and I will make you a new one for 80% of the selling price at that time, plus postage.

I am very confident that you will have to search very hard to find any other similar guarantee anywhere else in the industry. The reason I offer this is because I know what a quality product you receive when you buy any of my products.

I am not new to selling my work on the internet. I have been a seller on ebay for a number of years under the name of olie4. My feedback is 100% positive on all my craft sold there. You can also find me on Etsy, under the name..

If you have any special project you wish to have made, send me an e-mail. I would love to discuss it with you.
