AtelierduCuir's Shop Announcement

Welcome et Bienvenu to The Leather House - Atelier Du Cuir ! .

We have been making & selling fine leather goods for more than 25 years now.
Each item is made by hand, in the finest selected leather hides.
Making leather goods by hand to the kind of very high standards that you see iin our product range requires many years of skilled experience in every stage of our craft; from design to hide selection through to carefully sewing & putting an item together.

This is what we do in our small atelier workshop. Unlike mass produced leathergoods, here you will notice in our product range, beautifully turned leather edges, edges & decorative features of hand tooling - techniques which mass production does not allow for & is only passed on by hand from one leather master to their pupils. We use unplated full grain leather hides, this shows the natural grain of the leather enhanced in specific dyes that we choose, - leather grains like any skin varies across the piece - our hand made items will reflect the beauty of this natural leather rather than plating the leather as you see often in mass production ( or even using bonded leather )

We order specifically full grain hides from the tannery, we love to work with vivid colours & textures our distinctive waxy or pebble feel in vibrant copper, indigo or green.
We will then select the best hides from the drum to work with as for large items like bags & attache or briefcases we need large pieces which although showing grain & small nicks must not have large scars ot ugly markings on them. With the rest of the hide we cut small items, like purses or wallets so that wastage is at a minimum. This is also why you see the same colours running through our ranges.

Our team, we are a small group of six trained leather master crafts people with life times experience in making leather goods ; as well as I who designs
