Welcome to renfaireleather.com, homepage of Lords of Leather,
a Renaissance Faire leather shop for all your renaissance festival leather needs. Browse our online shop and enjoy our fair priced, great quality, and handcrafted products. Also email us for any questions you have. We would love to hear from you. This is our seventh year on the internet and we are hopping to serve more people before the Renaissance Season starts this year. We have been going to faires for over twelve years and have met many very nice people, watched many fun shows, and have been rained out way to many times... Before the faires, we began over twenty years ago at pre Rondezvous reenactments selling leather pouches, moccosins, wooden camping sinks, leather jewelry, cups, lanterns, dream catchers, clothes, belts, and so many other things, just like the old fur traders would have in the 1830s and 40s. We have also been to Civil War reenactments, Pow-Wows, and even a few Native American battle reenactments.
We have always been and still are a family owned and opperated merchant. A Couple of years before we started going to Faires, we started making lots of different leather items, which is what led up to this site. Our shoe line has always been a best seller and many people have remarked on them, but we had many piles of scrap leather pieces and didnt know what to do with them. So we started make purses, pouches, cup holders, hair holders, belts, tomahalk covers, and other little things. So today we make all kinds of goodies that you just have to come to the faire to see. We love going to see different parts of the country and meeting lots of people, and most of all, we like to see that our work is liked by the people who buy our goods and add them to thier renaissance garb.
Something else that is new to us this past couple of years is the permenant Renaissance Festival in Des Moines, IA. Lords of Leather is proud to be part of this exciting first for us and for Iowa. We operate out of a 20x30 foot booth. The Des Moines Ren Faire starts the first three weekends of September annually.
I hope that this website is easy to navigate, and even easier to veiw our items for sale and purchase. We accept most credit and debit cards through PayPal. Its simple and quick, and I think you will like how ordering is handled. To choose colors of leather, Im working on some sample pictures to show different colors of our leather. We have or can get just about any color of leather you can imagine. Our shoe line is made from 4 and 5 oz leather which is going to last a long time. Most items that are worn on a belt and the armor that we sell is also made from this leather. Other purses and pouches are a softer flexible leather and is similar to what we make bodices with. We have many shades of blues, browns, reds, greens and we have lots of black. The rabbit fur is a good quality, as is the rest of our merchandise. We ask that if you order any kind of shoes, please email or call us for a little info. We dont use the standard sizes, we have our own size chart, so what we most often do is get a trace of the size of your foot. This is the best way to make a shoe for your foot. When we recieve this in the mail, we will find your size, and call you to get your email address and send you an invoice, collect payment and send your shipment out the same day.
No shipping or handling charges on any order (not because we raised the price, but because we figured we dont have to go somewhere to sell our items and pay a setup fee at a Faire... )
