LAPINEL ARTS LEATHERWORKS

About Us

Cathy runs all aspects of this in home business. The first stage is purchasing the highest quality hides, planning the cutting process and preparing for design cuts. Next is the preparation of all the parts that will eventually become belts, cuffs, purses, clutches, wallets and totes. This is followed by the use of original designs & dye choices, patterns either by stamping, carving and or coloring by hand. Next is sewing, hardware placement, finish application and elbow grease for fine edges finish the product. Finally there is the meticulous application of various finishes to enhance and protect the item While almost all the items are single run art designs Cathy does accept commisions.   

Many of these products are functional art leather pieces. Some are whimsical in nature some more traditional but they are all designed in house. Please enjoy the image of Mr. Squirrel below.
