Artist and author Thomas Willeford. Purveyor of high end corsetry, leatherwork, costumes, steampunk accessories, and other unique items since 1995.
Supporting American industries and workers is very important to us. All of our materials, including fabric, metal, leather, and acrylic are made in the United States or imported from Sheffield, England. We do not outsource any of our labor to other countries. Even the fabric is milled in Pennsylvania.
Human and animal welfare are also very important to us. We make monthly donations to our local food bank and PAWS of PA, a no-kill animal rescue and spay/neuter group.
