Meet the Suppliers

Say “Hello” to the suppliers for Theater-Masks.com!

Hello! From the Studio

Tandy Leather

Provides rivets, punches, specialty tools and extraordinary customer service. I love doing business with this company and their store in Indianapolis. I have been doing business with them since 1999.

Weaver Leather

I found this company when looking for a rivet punch that would speed up my manufacturing process. They make a tool called “The Little Wonder” and it is exactly that. This tool allows the operator to set a rivet without having to punch any holes first. Using this tool makes me smile every time I rivet a strap. Oh, and the folks at Weaver Leather are super nice.
