Chair and Chisel had its beginnings as a leather armory and cosplay supply shop operated out of Houston, Texas. We specialize in unique custom leather armor designs for the cosplay community. This year, our accessories and designs are being modeled in Feroce magazine and our armor can be seen in the British film ‘Black Fields’ premiering in March 2021. Our line of elf ears, fangs, and wigs have been popular in the Tik Tok community and the elf ear line is now carried by Dolls Kill. Dissatisfied with the tool and supply options on the market for our leather and cosplay designs, we decided to launch a second shop with our own line of crafting supplies and tools. We aimed to meet the understood needs of the growing DIY crafting community and home-based small business movement. In under a year from launch, we grew both shops to rank in the top 1% of shops on Etsy globally. We specialize in unique hardware designs in high demand for a broad customer base. Our crystals, rivets, eyelets, and tools have a wide application and are used by artisans in leathercraft, jewelry, clothing design, and DIY projects. Our unique designs of our hardware and ease of application with our tool suite have earned us thousands of 5-star reviews and re. With our growing customer base of small business owners, we decided to participate this year as one of the first 500 United States owned businesses on Alibaba.
