Welcome to Krakenwhip!

If you’re here, it’s likely because you’ve seen our booth at a Ren Faire, costuming, or leather event. Maybe we even got a chance to play dress up together in one of our utility belts, holsters or ruff tops. You may have heard us joke that we’re much better at making leather goods than we are at making websites, and that's still very much true. But we're trying to change that. Slowly. And with help. 

The biggest news is that Molly Conway and Win Wallace, (longtime employees and booth managers) bought the company on January 1, 2024, and we've been trying to do some major repairs on this ship while still keeping her afloat.

Many aspects of this transition have been difficult (like suddenly having to shut down our Etsy before we had our own website ready and needing to change POS systems) but we're still beyond excited to move the brand forward and we’re incredibly grateful to our community for all of the love and support we’ve received in this transition.

At the moment, we’re finally wrapping up the last few outstanding custom orders we've inherited, keeping our ren faire booths stocked, and getting ready for SF Pride. We really appreciate your patience, and promise there’s some great things coming. (We’re working on expanding our size range, reducing our turnaround times for custom orders, making it *much* easier to order from us in general, and even debuting a few new products to add to the line.)

Feel free to check us out on Instagram to see what we’re up to; just remember that we’re makers first and content creators fourth.
