Gretchen - Christmas Stocking
❤️🧦Meet Gretchen - I love her so much, she has a tooled and painted leather loop hanger and front flap. She just makes my so happy with her colors and feel! There are three tooled turquoise leather ornaments attached to the boot with brass rivets and a sweet little brass jingle bell. The leather of the boot is hand stained in Italy and is the softest to the touch.
This is a one direction stocking, it only hangs with it’s toe facing to the right. It does not have a custom ornament option as I felt it would compete with the decorative elements and design 😄
❤️Measurements: Across the ankle is about 5” wide, from heel to toe is about 8.5” wide and from the top of the cuff to the toe is 16.5” long. The overall drop is 21”.
👉How do I care for my handmade leather pieces?
👉👉Why isn't your leather waterproof?👈👈
All leather is a natural skin, it retains moisture, gets dry and can warp and crack without proper care.. Just like us ;)
For our tooled and painted vegetable tan pieces we use only the best eco & health conscious finishing products - eco-flo environmentally safe stains and varnishes. These varnishes are water-resistant but by no means waterproof.
For any of our pieces, remove before bathing, swimming, showering or hand washing. if your piece does happen to get a splash on it, blot it dry with a soft absorbent cloth immediately in order to lessen any adverse affects, then condition.
On all pieces, I add a conditioning creme to keep it supple and flexible. This is a wax based polish that really helps protect the piece from the elements.
You will want to condition your pieces over time as the coats I've applied wear away. You can use conditioning cremes like Fiebing's Aussie Leather Conditioner to keep your pieces supple and to rejuvenate them... This cream is a combination of natural and synthetic wax emulsions (with bees wax) and does an amazing job!
