Welcome to The Office of Minor Details, the hand is mightier than the machine!

After years of working as an architect I have decided to shift some of the focus of my creative energy form large scale projects to the more intimate details that enrich our daily lives. The little things that we take for granted but bring us joy through their timeless beauty and functionality.

I am often unable to find things that suit my need perfectly and resort to making my own instead. This is how I came to start producing the leather items in my shop. People would often ask me where they could get the bags and wallets I was using and so The Office of Minor Details was formed to provide a source. First for friends and now for the wider Etsy audience.

Welcome to The Office of Minor Details, the hand is mightier than the machine!

After years of working as an architect I have decided to shift some of the focus of my creative energy form large scale projects to the more intimate details that enrich our daily lives. The little things that we take for granted but bring us joy through their timeless beauty and functionality.

I am often unable to find things that suit my need perfectly and resort to making my own instead. This is how I came to start producing the leather items in my shop. People would often ask me where they could get the bags and wallets I was using and so The Office of Minor Details was formed to provide a source. First for friends and now for the wider Etsy audience.

I love making things with my hands and enjoy seeing others getting enjoyment from the things I make. My work is truly hand crafted. I make each item with only a few hand tools. Each piece is individually crafted by me with a knife, hammer, punch, needle and thread from hand selected leather. NO MACHINES ARE USED IN THE PRODUCTION OF THESE GOODS.

As a result of not using machines in the production of my pieces I find I can create unique designs that would be impossible to produce any other way. I think you will really enjoy the difference.

My bags, wallets and cases are simple and sturdy. Their price reflects the hours of loving hand craftmanship that is put into these original designs. They are made to become faithful companions which will only get better with age, gaining a beautiful patina with use. I hope you like them.

Many thanks for taking the time to find out a bit about me and my work.
