ives custom leather banjo strap

"I just purchased a custom banjo strap from Eric James Leatherworks and couldn't be happier. James worked with me in the design of a strap that would combine strength, comfort, and ease of adjustment. And best of all, the rich black leather complements the design of my unique Black Diamond long-neck banjo perfectly. I know I'll be using this for a long, long time. Thanks, EJL!"

drew nelson custom leather guitar strap

"Thanks for such a great guitar strap. This is the guitar I just finished building. It's going to a guy in England.... The strap isn't! "
- Drew from Grand Rapids, Michigan

"James & Jill! The bracelets are absolutely perfect, thank you. I love them, and am actually feeling the teensiest tiniest bit selfish, as I want to keep the double wrap for myself, instead of gifting it... I guess I will have to be patient, if you can put me at the top of the list for another, when you return from your summer travels. Thank you again!"

Corrina's custom black leather purse with braided strap

"The soft black leather bag you designed and made was the best gift ever! I destroyed cheap department store bags before and my boyfriend had this bag made for me. I have had it two years now, and it looks great even though I am really tough on purses. I get lots of complimets and I like that it is one of a kind.

leather envelope clutch

"I acquired a beautiful leather Envelope Clutch last spring from Erik James Leatherwerks. I use it often for my iPad, and a notebook, a few business cards and a pen - old school meets new school. I feel like my materials are safely being carried, and quite frankly, I feel like I'm sharing a beautiful piece of art. The feel, the smell and the functionality are not lost on me. Thanks for sharing your talent and beautiful craftsmanship with us."
