Luxury leather office decor! This famous inspirational quote by Theodore Roosevelt is laser engraved and hand cut perfectly for your home or office decor.

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly,  so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”

— Theodore Roosevelt


Leather art is available as 8×10, or 11×14 inches and either unframed or framed in a dark brown wood frame.  No glass is provided as leather needs air to breathe.


We cut pieces of leather from full hides of leather. Made in the USA and humanely sourced as a by-product of the food industry, they are natural and environmentally friendly.

Because our tannery is located in Pennsylvania (our home state), this cuts down on emissions and allows us to do our part on sourcing local and working to protect the environment.
