Meet Yolanda

Prince Custom Leather began as a desire to work with the things I love most, which is my family and our horses. If you are a horse lover too, you know if you have horses, you must have saddles and tack - and sometimes things break or simply wear out. Since I am a "do it yourselfer" I set out to learn how to repair my equipment. From that came my desire to learn the art of hand carving and tooling my own things and from there it led to family and friends requesting that I make something for them or fix something that was broken. Thus my business began.

I specialize in handcarved and handtooled western leather goods and custom made leather goods. I can also do other types of custom made leather goods such as motorcycle/biker items. If you have a specific item in mind, send me an email and we'll discuss your idea.

I do all the work myself, from the cutting, carving and handtooling to the dying or staining and the completion of the finished product which can be either hand sewn or laced. I use #1 veg tanned leather for my projects and all the items are hand cut. I do not use pre-assembled kits. I make a high-quality product which will last for years to come but quality craftsmanship means a quality price for the item made. You know the old saying" You get what you pay for."

I travel to local festivals and craft shows and rodeos. I have made awards for rodeo associations and have taught classes for Vacation Bible School's and at Heritage Days for our local school system. My work is unique and no two items will be exactly alike as they are all made one item at a time. Variations in the leather such as wrinkles, scratches or brand marks all are conditions of natural leather and add character to each piece; however, the durability and quality of the leather is without question. My craftsmanship is guaranteed and I stand behind my work. If any item is found unsatisfactory due to workmanship, please return it within 7 days, (less s&h) and I will repair or replace the item or refund the purchase price. Since I custom make all the items, I have decided to work one on one with my customers as far as ordering and payment arrangements, so please email or call me and we will discuss your idea/project.
