Vendor Q&A with Fisticuffs Leather
What is your craft all about?
It's about taking discarded leather materials already in our environment and re-purposing them into functional, wearable art.
How did you get started in your craft?
Well, I bought a motorcycle and decided I needed something to fill that void between your glove and the bottom of the sleeve. I found a really cool old belt and made a cuff out of it. Once my friends saw it they all had to have one too. I've had a real passion for making them since.
Where has your craft taken you?
The sky is the limit with my craft. I continue to expand my retail base as well as craft festivals on the weekends.
