Our story begins in Fremont, California in 2009.  In the beautiful San Francisco Bay area.  Xsotica LLC started as a handcrafted jewelry company.  We sold our designs at local Art and Wine shows.  Then in 2012 we expanded our sales nationally by opening stores on Etsy and Ebay.  We also expanded our product lines to include Leather Cord, Tagua and Acai beads.

By 2013 even though we only had a selection of 8 colors and one size our leather cords sales had outpaced all of our other items combined.  We began to add new colors and sizes and by the end on 2015 we had increased our color selection to over 35.

In 2016 we launched our website  We offer over 55 colors of round leather cords.  Please shop with confidence even though our shop is new we have been selling cords for several years with thousands of satisfied customers.  See our reviews on Etsy and Ebay:
