On November 3, 2005, Master Steve of Butchmanns came up with the idea of making a “Leather Tribal Quilt”. In its first conception it was to be used as a fundraiser for South Plains Leatherfest’s International Master and slave travel fund and got donated to the Leather Archives and Museum (located in Chicago).
It is a moveable part of leather pride.
The Leather Quilt has grown so large that it has been split into two displays and now attends more events around the country. Each year the curators exchange travel cases so all panels may circulate nationally.
