Buckled Garters
Garters can be decorative or functional. On tall boots they can be used to tighten the fit so that the boot will not slide down your leg. If that's the way you choose to use them, the placement needs to be considered. If they are decorative, they can be placed where ever you'd like them.

More Details for Consideration
Your Coat of Arms: can be painted on your shoes or boots if the area is large enough to accomidate the design. If it is simple enough we can cut the design through the leather and apply a lining from behind. We'll need a clear DETAILED copy to work from.

Embroidery Patterns: can be added with paint and would look especially good on the toes of a slipper. We have a library of Jacobean and Celtic patterns that are available or you can give us a copy of your favorite. A border design could be added on the edge color.

Your Fabric: can be made into your slippers or boots. It needs to be a tightly woven upholstery fabric. We would be happy to let you know if it is possible. Send a large sample for us to test

Your Custom Designs: can be made , send us a picture for a quote.
