Braiding News: Introducing a New Mailing list

To better serve your braiding needs, we invite you to join our leather braider email mailing list. Periodically, we plan to send Braiding News that we trust will be of value. Included will be any new material or tool sources, new available books and information that might be of interest to braiders. If you would like to be included on our list, please send your email address to hought@humboldt1.com. We look forward to hearing from you and thank you for your interest.

Gail and Eric


Please allow 4 to 6 weeks for delivery of kit. 
Leather prices have been rising at an alarming rate.  Critical evaluation revealed braiding kit costs did not reflect rising material costs be it kangaroo, latigo or rawhide.  New braiding kit prices reflect those rising material costs yet material quality remains as high as always.  All materials must meet my standards before they are included in a kit for you.  Fortunately my labor costs remain unchanged.
