Bracers, Vambraces & Larger Armbands


Featured item:

The Bracers of Gondor


From the Lord of the Rings! Boromir's Bracers that Aragorn wears after his death. Fully researched from actual museum displays and meticulously hand tooled from my own pattern, hand stitched dual layering (everybody else machine stitches these), all artwork painstakingly reproduced fully by my own hand. Includes quilted leather padding of your choice (see below), and buckles!

I am the second person on the entire web that started making these and have been doing so now for years! And still these are less expensive and better quality than others that are now making them!

Only $325 per pair

Variable Color Schemes

My studies have shown that the truest colors are a Dark Brown top layer over a Chocolate Brown (chocolate brown is darker than dark brown) layer, with medium brown padding, as shown in the main photo above. You can choose that, or any color combination that works for you!

how I determined the colors

An example of a Raven Crest. This is my Raven for the order I belong to. (This actual emblem is not available to the public.)

This was a single one ordered, with an engraving of a hammer, and some lettering. Note that the point also cut off.

These were Black Gondors with the tree replaced by three golden clovers.

PROTESTERS take notice: Boycotting leather goods will not affect the production of raw leather!

No animals were hurt or killed for the creation of these products; most leather is a by-product of the ginormous meat industry!

If my colleagues and I didn't make stuff out of it, that leather would just get thrown away and wasted.
