New Website

Coming in the next week or so! I'm busy working on orders, just got back from a nice trip to Cape Cod, and I'm almost done with the new site. it will be way more integrated and simple, and will hopefully give Corter Leather the ease and aesthetic beauty I think it deserves!

Until then, keep the orders coming. Fall season is usually when the wait list gets to around 50 people (last year we had 200 people wanting wallets when we were taking a break and finishing school!) so it's best to get the orders in early!

I found a hide large enough for 4 premium belts, so those are back for the time being!

Also, new Corter Leather Bracelets are available in both single and double wrap, for $25 and $33 respectively.

Lastly, I've got a couple wallets for sale very cheap. shipping will be $5 or $7, depending on where you are in the world.

$80, interior has an ID slot thats just a tad too small, and full card slots.

Going Green

Leathersmithing is inherently a very eco friendly trade. Everything is done by hand, and besides a bit of electricity for a laptop, camera, and a light, I use very little other energy. While I usually try to be kind to mother nature, I've never been super fanatical about it. I'm introducing a new selection of wallets, I'll call them Scrap Wallets. They're made out of just that: scrap. I've had this idea for a little while, and I finally got to act on it this weekend while traveling. I'll be making, from time to time, wallets out of interesting, reclaimed leather from my shop. I've got the first two here, and they're available for purchase on the main site now. 

This first one is a regular snap wallet with 6 card slots. The shell is made from a piece of leather I've used to test dyes I custom mix. The concho is a hand made peso concho I got from an artisan in the midwest. 

This next one was a big piece of leather that got spilled on, it's a maroon color (more red than this photo, I couldn't get it to come out right). It's got 3 card slots and a coin pouch, and again- a handmade peso concho for a snap.

and lastly, here's a picture of the past group's orders (well, half of them)

Now Accepting Orders!

Round 3 is well on it's way to completion (7 orders left) so I'm now accepting orders for round 4. I'll take 15 names this time, and this order list will take me to September. I'll put all 15 names in a hat, and pull one. That person will get their order free! Please email to get your name on the list.

I'm heading off to Bonnaroo this afternoon, so all emails will be responded to next tuesday unless I get decent phone service in the big field in manchester. This will be my 3rd trip down, I'll be sure to take lots of pictures to share. For those who haven't seen the lineup, a few of the shows I'm absolutely going to see are Bon Iver, Phish (yes, I'm a phish fan, from back in my long haired tye dye days), Grace Potter, Dear and the Headlights, Jenny Lewis, Wilco, Neko Case, and Justin Townes Earle. 

Also, Corter Leather is now on twitter! you can follow us at:

it's mostly just random ramblings and pictures, however I will be posting more about prototypes and how fast the waitlist is going, etc.
