New leather luggage and bags page

Mulholland Brothers All Leather Lariat Longhorn

Once again I’ve added a new leather product page in my store. This time It’s quality leather luggage from Luggage Pros, a leader in brand name luggage, bags and briefcases. They have a good selection of leather luggage, from carry-ons, bags, duffels, rolling carts, garment bags and more.

All the leather is made from cowhide, buffalo or pigskin to give you years of use. It’s all top quality, no patchwork, bonded leather or other crap. The leather comes in different colors too, not just black. Plus it’s from top brand names, like Mulholland Brothers, Hartmann and more.

The leather has been treated and sealed, so you don’t have to do a thing with it once you get it. Just condition and seal it once a year or so depending on how often you use it. I highly recommend any leather products from Luggage Pros. They only carry top quality items. So check my new leather luggage page out and tell me what you think!

Alligator hide farmers can’t sell their hides

Alligator hide leather farmers can\'t sell hides

I bet you thought I would never write another post here! No, I’m still around, just busy. Hope your summer is going well. I thought I’d share a news story with you I heard. Seems like with all the bad economy going on, people who farm alligators for their hides can’t sell them. I don’t mean they can’t sell them for much, I mean they can’t get ANYONE to take them!

The places that process them and make them into all those fancy alligator leather boots, wallets and purses just don’t have enough demand for them anymore. Even the big shots that buy the high end alligator leather items are cutting back. So it’s not surprising that the alligator purses and boots are the first to go!

There’s a lot of alligator farms around here in Florida. The guy in the picture above is one of them. He’s ready to kill his whole farm of alligators because it cost so much to feed and keep them. It’s just not worth it anymore. I imagine it will take a while before people start buying the high end products, and alligator leather is one of the top price items.

Once this guy gets rid of his gators he will freeze the hides and wait until the price picks back up. I guess only a few will come out of this good. You can read about it here: alligator hides not in demand. So see, even the CEO’s are cutting back, poor things! They will have to downgrade to cowhide like the rest of us. 😉

Leather jewelry,bracelets & necklaces

leather jewelry and bracelets

From time to time I start to get a little writers block about leather. There is only so much you can talk about as far as leather goes. I’ve pretty much covered all the ways of cleaning, conditioning and caring for leather. But today I happened to see a pretty leather bracelet and realized I have never talked about leather jewelry.

Now to some jewelry made from leather just does not sound right. Like, what can you make with leather that looks like jewelry? But actually there are many kinds of leather jewelry made. Often the leather is only part of the whole piece of jewelry, like a braided leather necklace with a silver pendant on the end.

Or in the case of leather bracelets the leather makes up the whole thing, or most of it. Cowhide and pigskin are the most common types of leather hides used to make leather jewelry. Almost all leather jewelry is made by making the leather into long thin strips, then braiding them together to make a nice looking pattern.

leather jewelryleather necklaces

A leather bracelet or necklace can have many small strips of leather braided together, or just a few thick ones. It all depends on the leather artist. And they truly are artist; it takes a damn long time to learn how to braid leather into jewelry, I know I can’t! Some use different colors of leather strips to make a colorful piece.

Often they also add silver, gold, copper, nickel or stainless steel to the leather jewelry to really make it look nice and give it more function. The types of leather jewelry is only limited to your imagination. There are leather roses, leather picture frames, leather jewelry boxes and many other forms of leather jewelry.

So if you wanted to see just what kinds of leather jewelry there are out there, just google leather jewelry and you’ll find lots of them. Sometimes there are even leather jewelry shops in my sidebar ads I sell. If you love leather, than go all out and get a few leather necklaces, bracelets or any other leather jewelry and show off your love of leather!

buying and care of a hard leather briefcase

hard leather briefcase

When I use to sell monogrammed leather products, the biggest seller at Christmas time was hard leather briefcases. I think lots of dads get 4 things for gifts; socks, ties, wallets and leather briefcases! Of course most get the cheap ones that cost around $20.00 bucks and not made of real leather. I made a post about soft leather ones, now I’ll talk about hard leather briefcases.

Most hard leather briefcases look pretty much like the one in the top picture. They normally close and shut with a latch or combination lock, or both. Some lock with a key, and yet others close with a buckle. But the latch and combination lock are the most common. If it’s made of real leather, it should say “made of genuine leather” on a tag or inside somewhere.

Leatherette, man made leather or “leather like” is NOT real leather. Patchwork leather is a very cheap and worthless material, please don’t get one made like that. There is actually two ways a hard leather briefcase can be made. One way is using thick leather that has been treated differently than how they treat leather for jackets and apparel. [Read more…]

How to buy a quality soft leather briefcase and what to look for

buying a leather briefcase

How do you buy a quality leather briefcase? What do you look for when buying a leather briefcase? How do I know if a briefcase is made of real leather? If you’ve ever tried to buy a leather briefcase chances are you’ve asked those questions. I use to sell leather briefcases, and airbrushed monograms on them.

There are many kinds of leather briefcases. You have very simple ones with just a few compartments, to briefcases with many compartments, file holders, pen holders, pockets, laptop compartments and more. The two main types of leather briefcases are hard briefcases and soft briefcases. The hard leather briefcases normally have latches with combination locks, or key locks.

Today I’ll just talk about the soft leather briefcases. Most soft leather briefcases have a fold over top flap that locks in place by a snap, twist button, buckles or simple buttons. Also popular are the zippered leather briefcases with several zippered compartments. What style you get is really a matter of personal preference. [Read more…]

Small leather items that make good gifts

leather items that make good gifts

In my last post I was saying how maybe getting someone a leather jacket might not be such a great idea, since it’s so personal. But today I’ll tell you about leather items that do make great gifts. There’s a lot of small items for the motorcycle or for yourself made of leather that are great gifts and not too expensive.

A leather purse is one item, that would be for a girl of course! You can find many styles and colors, along with many sizes. While were talking about leather gifts for a woman, another leather gift could be leather ponytail holders. You also can find leather waist pouches, leather backpacks and leather shoulder bags.

For more unisex leather gifts, we have leather cup holders for the motorcycle, leather cigarette cases, leather cell phone holders, leather cigarette lighter cases, lots of different types of leather hats and more. Leather gloves are also a good gift item if you know what style they like. I don’t think leather boots are a good gift, you really need to know the size and style they want. [Read more…]

Adding a leather jacket & apparel store soon!

new leather jacket and leather apparel store at Leather Supreme


Hi everyone. Before too long it will be cooler weather. Bikers up north will have to put away their Harleys for another year. But the lucky ones down south, like where I am, get to ride all year. In fact the fall and winter months are some of the best times to ride here. The weather is perfect, not too hot, not too cold.

Anyway I wanted to let you know that soon I will be opening up a leather store right here inside this site. I can make lots of pages with lots of items. I’ve sold leather jackets and other leather items before. So I know what is good brands and bad brands. When I just started out I sold leather that everyone else did.

That was really cheap leather, and it smelled, came apart and had all kinds of problems with it. So that’s what made me study up on leather, find out what the really good leather is, how to spot it, and who the hell sells it! So now when I open up my leather store I know just where to go, who to buy my wholesale leather from. So just what will I sell?

Leather handbags & purses

Leather handbags and purses


What’s going on everyone? The weekend is finally here, I bet your glad of that! I thought I would talk a little about leather handbags and purses today. I try to make this a leather site about all things leather, so I’ll include purse and handbags, at least once. Now, almost no where else is the problem of cheap and fake leather more common than in handbags and purses!

Most of the leather handbags out there are not real leather at all. There are a wide variety of “synthetic” leather that is passed of as leather. That means it’s rubber or plastic, with some fabric thrown in. Simulated real leather, leather-like, leather grain pattern, leatherette, all those names are fancy fronts for non leather fabric.

Even the real leather purses can be really cheap. Of course we have the patchwork leather purses too, which are even worst than the fake leather knock-offs! Don’t get a patch work, bonded leather purse or handbag. They will fall apart almost as soon as you start using them. They also often use leather so thin it rips just dragging a fingernail over it.
