Reindeer leather is a precious commodity that is difficult to source. Most of the reindeer hides are used by the Saami people for their own clothing and personal use. I am only able to purchase the reindeer leather in small quantities that are sold as scrap leather. I stitch the small pieces together in order to make purses, pouches, reindeer bracelets and other items. Nothing is wasted. Each purse is unique and a combination of different coloured leathers depending on what I have on hand.
If you would like to order a custom made purse in a different size or colours, please ask. Custom orders take approximately 3-4 weeks to complete. I ask for a 50% Non-refundable deposit on all Custom orders. This pays for the material costs, should you change your mind.
