Green Acres Leather was founded by Julia Green (Canadian). Julia has been doing leather work and selling gear since 2013. Her love for the arts started as a young girl; she would spend hours painting, drawing and crafting in a wide variety of styles – from scratch art, to woodworking, and now onto leatherwork. Her love for leather comes genuinely from family roots – she has two Canadian cousins that are well known saddle makers and a great grandfather who was a harness and shoe repair man in the early 20th century.
Julia is committed fulltime to her craft and is currently having a larger office built. This will allow for a larger workspace, a retail store, and a larger space to teach her wine and cheese leather crafting classes. She will also be offering Air B and B accommodation to those who would like to stay over after the classes.
Julia endeavours to keep the business small, as she wants to continue to create unique handmade products. Each product is made with top quality selected leather and cowskins. The paints, dyes, seals, buckles and other hardware are top quality and are selected to last for years. Every item comes with a one-year warranty.
