This famous success quote by Theodore Roosevelt is modified for a modern female perspective. The perfect gift for any businesswoman!

“It is not the critic who counts; not the woman who points out how the strong woman stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the woman 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 herself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if she fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that her 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.
