Art and Survival Leather accessories and jeans are handmade in Galgalinburg, Tennessee. I enjoyed watching Billy Moore made belts and on a table right in front of me at the show. You really get to see first hand all the work that goes into making these fine leather accessories. The belt buckles he even makes himself out of hand wrought copper and nickel. Belts are of hand dyed and hand painted leather that will last a long time for they are very thick. He also makes handstiched business card holders out of beaver-tail which is an extremely heavy leather. Other ideams in the line are bracelets $60-$80 retail and jeans in all different washes at $280.00. The belts are $150.00. To read the interesting story on how he started go to WWW.ART-SURVIVAL.COM
