Trailblazing designer and leather artisan Leslie Crow is known for her free spirited and authentic approach to the ancient art of leathercraft. Dedicated to sourcing only the finest quality wild harvested deerskin and elkhide leather from highly exclusive suppliers across America, and selecting leather that is a sustainable and humane byproduct of hunting and small scale tanning practices. She is passionate about never supporting factory farming or using leather that is a byproduct of that industry. Leslie personally designs and hand stitches each piece to guarantee an element of luxury and character, as well as a perfect fit that is unmatched in modern industry. She began her career in Los Angeles by a mentorship with legendary rock and roll leather designer Henry Duarte, then founding Heyoka Leather in 2007 with her two best friends Rachel Avraham and Angela Bruyere. Their collaboration became a brand which left its mark on the fashion world and established Leslie Crow as a leading visionary in the contemporary handcrafted makers movement. Now working from a small log cabin studio on a farm in rural Texas she has shifted focus to designing high end custom pieces made to order. Combining inspiration from her Appalachian heritage, genuine personal style and years of experience, each one of a kind leather heirloom is recognizable not by the label but by the craftsmanship and integrity of the creation itself.

We take pride in selling extremely special pieces that are usually one of a kind, ethically handmade, and celebrates true craftsmanship instead of toxic fast fashion.
