We are a family owned and operated business that has been selling our unique brand of leather and suede clothing at Art and Renaissance festivals for over 40 years.
Miles Tonne was started in the 60’s by John Meilinger (AKA Miles Tonne) who stumbled upon a large scrap pile of leather and suede that was being thrown away at a coat factory in his hometown. Being an environmentalist, he grabbed all he could and started stockpiling this beautiful material. Soon he began patching together the scrap pieces and out of this he created many clothing designs which have been enjoyed by thousands of people over the years.
Now run by myself, Ian Meilinger (AKA Miles Tonne II) and my family, the company continues to create unique leather and suede clothing. We strive to create the finest products meant for years of use and guarantee all of the craftsmanship that goes into making every Miles Tonne piece. We construct each piece individually by hand using only resources which are a by-product of the food industry (Pig, Lamb, Cow, Goat). Each item we make is a one of a kind work of wearable art.
Our goal is to assist each individual in attaining their desired look. In addition to a wide variety of designs and color combinations in our physical shops, We also offer custom work to create the perfect outfit for each customer. Our styles fit in very well with the renaissance/fantasy theme and transcend time periods allowing for use in everyday life.
We hope you can get an idea of the possibilities within this collection of images. We have hundreds of unique pieces, spanning a huge variety of materials and colors. This is just a small glimpse into what we can do, please come to our locations at any of the festivals in the where to find us page.
