About Us

Handcrafted Designs

Leather & Lace participates only at high end juried art shows.  All of our work is designed and made (truly by hand, from scratch) in New York's Upper Catskills, by Joe Maurice Reboh. Joe started out as a teen in 1969, apprenticing with a master leather craftsman on Long Island. A true New Yorker, he soon found his own, now vintage style. His Moroccan roots are evident in unique, intricate hand tooled or carved designs in many of his pieces.

Committed to Quality

Joe at work in the leather workshop

Sourced from hand-picked, top quality cowhide, moose, elk, deer, lamb, goat, python, bison, water buffalo or pig skin. The spirit of each animal is always greeted from  the heart, every piece a prayer.

Dyes are blended and applied by hand, creating unique pieces of functional art.  Everything is made to last, and be passed down to the next generation(s), with proper care.
