Buy Better: Leather Treasures



Marie Meyer-Barton handcrafts leather goods from her original designs in her home workshop on Martha’s Vineyard. She uses buttery soft, locally sourced deerskin and other fine leather to create baby moccasins, purses, pouches, backpacks, wallets, belts, and leather jewelry. Meyer-Barton’s designs come in many colors and some of the items incorporate intricate designs imprinted in color on the leather. Others incorporate Native American-made wampum beads and buttons. 

Available at Night Heron Gallery, 58 Main Street; and Martha’s Vineyard Made, 29 Main Street, both in Vineyard Haven.
