The tale of this company is one of personal growth and undying dedication to one's passions. we are a team of artists whose personal aesthetic and sense of style has always leaned toward the bold and unconventional. we know we're not the only ones, and have decided to bring that aesthetic to the public. we treat every piece we make as an individual artistic creation, in which it is our hope, will help to allow the wearer that same sense of personal expression.

Knotted bone is a custom design workshop that produces quality, hand crafted leather apparel and chain-maille  accessories for the modern day warrior. we believe that style and functionality must go hand in hand, which is why all of our items are made in the old world style. simple, rugged, and built to last, each piece is meticulously cut, tooled, dyed, and assembled by hand, there is no machine stitching or stamping to be found here. whether you are a period re-enactor looking for the perfect bracers or belt to finish your attire, or if you just love the appeal of a rustic aesthetic and want a unique hand bag for going out and making a statement, we can make that personal piece a reality. choose from any of the many items in our shop, or contact us to discuss a completely new custom creation of your own Design. don't let mass produced Fads define you, let us help make the gear that you will use to define yourself.

for almost 10 years, we have been working to perfect our craft to be able to bring you the highest quality hand crafted leather and chain-maille goods around, Based on the ancient methods and styles of Traditional, old-world design. Much of our inspiration comes from the old norse, celtic, And Slavic aesthetic, incorporating ancient tribal patterns, knot-work, and shamanic symbolism. we also like to create pieces that are less specific and stylized in a way that has a more universally rustic feel, so that they may be used in a much wider spectrum of occasions.



to request a custom piece be made to your specific design, First send us a message with a detailed description of what you would like to accomplish so we can determine its feasibility. once a final design and color scheme is agreed upon, we will run through all of the materials and supplies that will be needed, the price of which will be required up front as a non-refundable security deposit. this is in place as a safety measure for both parties. once we purchase specific materials and begin production on a very personalized piece and then it is decided by either party to cancel the order, we don't loose money on the initial investment and you won't have paid full price for a piece you no longer want. once the order is completed you will be notified and the remainder of the price, which covers labor, will be due before shipping. Average time to complete a Commission is 1 to 2 weeks depending on size and complexity. Please Contact us with any questions regarding a commission.
