These brand new totes are part of an effort that as a designer of leather goods I felt compelled to give a try. These bags are made with our Leather Waves workmanship and design in “leather-like materials”. No real leather is used in this product line for our clients who want an alternative. We have mixed rich thick woven tapestries with faux leather trims and pieces, those pieces are finished with a lace trim. The linings are also done in faux leathers and are very strong and made to last. There is a large zipped pocket in the interior. A great carry all bag. These totes are all available now Off Rack.
This is a simple pouch envelope that we originally designed for men, but that our women clients began to buy.

We also make this pouch in Leather, Suede, Tapestries and “No Animal (faux) Leather” (look for photos in smooth black or brown paisley). These Are Available Now or can be custom ordered in other colors and textures. Please look up the purse and wallet in their respective categories, this page only reflects the pouch/envelope price.

This is a coat we have made for years. You will see that it can be made with a hood or with a wide shawl collar covered with leather. The coat can be made in Women’s sizes or Men’s sizes. It is a loose fitting and wrap-around style, calf to ankle length. The patterns and colors are based on what is available when you order. Our favorite blanket fabric is made by Pendelton and is a wool blend, but there are many other varieties to use as well. The coat comes with a long wrapping belt that is held in place with belt loops so that it can be worn with or without it. Looks great when hanging open, or wrapped and tied with the belt. This can be a warm coat for cold weather and snow, and is great because it is roomy enough to layer clothing underneath it. We had a client who used it as a bathrobe…in fact we do make a fleece version of it that is perfect for a robe! -ask for details- Also shown is a messenger styled bag also in blanket material with leather details and trim, look in our bags product pages (mens and womens) for pricing. Made by custom order only.
Love is so tempting, yes? So I made a red leather Valentines Day dress this year. Interestingly enough it’s actually made from “no-animal” fabrics but I’ve constructed and sewn it in my typical leather working manner. Pieces of printed silk are interspersed on the bodice, hem, and trim along the exposed zipper. The zipper is black metal and finely fabricated with a beautiful matching pull. The red fabric has an exotic lizard leather repeated pattern in the lengthwise direction and is trimmed with a faux smooth black leather. The shape is meant to be sculptural and rounded by the hips, making the drape a bit extreme, yet this also provides a roominess that allows for comfortable wearing. This dress is available now in womens size 6. It can also be made by custom order in a variety of fabrics and in real Leather or Suede as well, prices vary and are available upon request. Happy Valentines Day, kisses.
You will see this jacket already listed but I have come up with a second version of the first, and put them both up for your consideration because they are both great! Same leather, soft lambskin in a medium brown distressed finish. The difference is that this one is more fitted in the body and I did a quilted pocket detail that is very interesting. This jacket is available by custom order in a variety of leathers and suedes, and “No-Animal” fabrics as well.
If you were giving an incredible bottle of wine as a gift, this would be the cover that would always be remembered. A leather or suede drawstring bag with a faux fur lining, tied with a satin cord. Or just display it on your favorite bottle in your wine room or on a wine rack. A very beautiful and reusable leather bag….after the wine is gone! By custom order.
Some of our clients are vegans and vegetarians who prefer an alternative to wearing real leather. There have been many strides taken in textile industry to create fabrics that look like leather. At Leather Waves it’s always my supreme desire to give my clients exactly what they are looking for, so in 2010 I created a new and additional label called “no-animal”. My goal is to produce my leather designs in an alternative fabric that mimics leather, as an alternative to our awesome leather designs. In these photos see a “no-animal” leather backpack that can also be worn as a shoulderbag. It has a funnel neck that folds over and snaps down. A cell-phone pocket and zippered area as well as interior velcro-ed pockets make this a very organized bag. You can purchase this bag by custom order in a variety of colors and textures…you can also order this design in real Leather and Suede!
One of our new pieces, the “No-Animal” Wrap Sweater Jacket. Made from a leather-looking fabric, light as a feather with a soft combed cottony feeling interior is a very dark grey. Wash in cold water and lay out to dry, this piece is a very practical investment. The back of the jacket is shorter and more fitted and as it comes to the front it is very full and long, throw one side up over your shoulder or let it hang loose in front. The style mimicks the very popular wrap style cover-ups in fashion today. Made by custom order in black, other colors can be order by request. this style can also be ordered in our thinnest and most desirable black plonget leather…gorgeous.
