Ruthless Leather has always been a side hustle for Dave and I but as both of our other businesses are taking up more and more time it’s becoming impossible to keep all the balls in the air. Before we drop one we’ve decided to close Ruthless Leather for a while. We don’t know exactly how long, but until we catch up with all of the other things we’ve fallen behind on, look after some health stuff and maybe even spend some time together where the pay-off isn’t orders backing up.

We’re both people pleasers and struggle with the fact that we’re letting people down by taking a break. But lightbulb moments like neither of us having time to take Trixie to the vet recently (we made time, she had three grade 2 tumours removed) and planning to catch up on paperwork while we’re on holidays made me realise we need to make some changes, to stay on top of both business and normal life stuff.

We’ve disabled the add-to-cart button on all our made-to-order listings and gift vouchers but not on the ready-to-ship listings, so you can still buy from that section. We’re contactable. If you have a voucher you can still redeem it, just email us. Orders in the queue will be completed and if you sent an enquiry before this decision was made we’ll do our best to look after you.

If you’d like to be notified when we re-open you can subscribe to our mailing list here.
