Winter Tree Crafts LLC is a full-time one-man shop located in the forested West River Valley in southeastern Vermont. WTC opened in 2005 and got its start hand-making high quality leather belts and accessories and now well-known SCA gorgets.
WTC is now a full-time armoury serving the WMA and SCA communities with semi-custom spring steel armour. Semi-custom means that I will generally only perform limited customizations besides sizing on my established lines of armour. This allows me to keep the quality of armour high while keeping the price reasonable. I generally will not accept comissions for fully custom work. My work and pricing is what I like to call middle-market. It is of higher quality, fit (and price) than munitions grade armour, but still has a long way to go (and is much cheaper) than the handful of very talented armourers out there who make some of the world’s best reproduction armour and who do fully-custom harnesses.
