Kerry Phipps is a hugely talented artist who does custom leather creations. Her work is found on the site Custom Made. It is here that you can find a giant selection of items that Kerry has made and choose from those, or have Kerry make a custom project for you. 
     I contacted Kerry to make a portfolio for me. She did an amazing job, it is pictured to the left. Kerry's family has been producing custom designed, hand tooled, and completely handmade custom leather products since the early 1950′s.
Each item that Kerry's team makes is custom designed to your exact specifications. After they receive your order and understand it, they hand cut the leather from the hide, hand tool, hand dye, and hand sew your order, there is never a machine involved in the creation of your hand tooled leather items.

     During the creation of the portfolio, Kerry Phipps kept me updated of the process and sent me pictures of the process. It was amazing to see the product unfold from a piece of hide to the portfolio you see in the photo.  The portfolio is very high quality and extremely well done. The difference between a handmade product and a a store bought one is extremely noticeable. The stitching is near perfect, but has a unique quality to it. The entire product is absolutely beautiful. 
     Kerry Phipps has designed many gorgeous items. She has even made a custom leather journal for one of the actors on Duck Dynasty. If you are looking for that special holiday gift, be sure to take a second and look at Kerry's Custom Made shop here
