French & English Confectioner's is a luxury leather goods label, created by me, Lucie Gonnord. I rework classic designs in high quality Italian patent leather, to give a super-modern look.
I studied shoemaking at the world-renowned leatherwork school Cordwainers.
Each product is expertly handmade to order by me in my workshop by the sea in St Leonards, East Sussex.
French & English Confectioner's aim is to create simple, modern classic leather goods for men, women and children. Traditional craftsmanship, local manufacturing, and affordable design are the key concepts.
I love patent leather! But some people don't...If you prefer I can make most of my designs in natural, waxed leather (as seen on the backpack).
Please contact me if…
