Made from soft bovine leather with gilt detailing, these are a natural product with unique colour and texture variations. No two are the same!
Crafted by Meniscus, the same talented artists and craftspeople who fabricated beautiful leather pieces for The Hobbit movies.
Each piece of the Banners of Middle Earth™ collection from Meniscus sports the official heraldry imagery from The Lord of the Rings™ and The Hobbit™ motion picture trilogies.
We employ traditional leather-working methods using turn of the century sewing and splitting machines, hand tools and anvils. We also embrace new technologies and like to mix old techniques with modern mechanics. We source premium raw materials from as close to home as possible and our small crew make every single piece by hand.
With a commitment to enduring design, Meniscus Leather Goods are renowned for their specialist armour, props, footwear and costumes for the world of film and beyond. Their work can be seen on the screen in films such as The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit motion picture trilogies, Avatar, The Lion, the Witch & the Wardrobe, King Kong and The Lovely Bones, as well as the record-breaking exhibition Gallipoli: the scale of our war, a collaboration between the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa and Weta Workshop.
Most recently, Meniscus contributed prop, art and costume elements for the critically-acclaimed Pete's Dragon.
