Has anyone received tack for Valentine’s Day? Or are you hinting that you want some? Keeping the Valentine’s Day trend going, I decided to showcase some of Luan’s Leathers – in pink, red & zebra.
Luan does amazing working & I had to throw in a bit of Q&A as well.
Q1. What was your inspiration to start Luan’s Leathers?
Luan - My inspiration for starting Luan’s Leathers? Well, it was never suppose to be a business. I have always enjoyed making things for my two girls and since they were both into horses I started making tack, spur straps, halters, belts and anything else I could think of, and when people asked them where they got them, their response was “Mom will make you one”, and that is how it all started.
Q2. Do you have an all time favorite piece or set that you designed?
Luan - My favorite design is the confetti pattern with either the rimset crystals onto the hide or using 5 different sized crystals on the conchos. I just really like the look of all the different sizes and textures.
Q3. What inspires you & where do you look for inspiration?
Luan - My inspiration comes from a lot of different places, fashion, boot tops, re-thinking an old pattern, but when I’m really looking for something fun I look through a book of old Cowboy gear. It has a pair of chaps with over 3,000 studs on them, there’s a pommel bag that I thought would make a nice purse and they had some pretty fancy parade gear.
Luan’s Leathers has a lot of great pieces & they make dog collars, cosmetic bags, handbags & more!
And of course, I have a soft spot for zebra print.
