Expressions in Leather by Brigit

Brigit's love affair with leather began in 1970 while in college. With a $25 investment and some encouragement from a leather supplier in Denver she was on her way.

She immediately became hooked on the texture, the grain and the feel of fine leather. It is a natural product with endless possibilities for creativity. She uses cowhide for almost everything she makes with an occasional piece of pigskin for a lining or an overlay.

Although Brigit takes her leather work very seriously she has never used it to make a living. This allows her to spend more time on each piece without worrying what she will charge. Her reward comes in the personal satisfaction of knowing that she has created something that will be used and enjoyed.
Even after 37 years she finds the time she spends in her studio to be very rewarding.

Brigit stands behind every item in her shop and wants you to be completely satisfied with your purchase. If for any reason you are not, she will work with you to ensure your satisfaction.

As you can see from Brigit's shop she still makes some "retro" items that are a throw back to her early years, but she works to keep up to date with things like cell phone and MP3 cases. Right now she seems to be going through a bright color phase. She has some absolutely gorgeous colors of leather.

In Brigit's leather Etsy shop you will find completely handcrafted gifts and accessories in leather and suede. She is a one-person shop so she makes everything from start to finish. Her work area is smoke and pet free.

She is continually adding new items so stop back and browse often. Don't hesitate to ask and send her and Etsy convo if you have a question or want something special made that you currently don't see in her shop.
