Love these durable leather sleeves for my tea or coffee. Thick leather, well made to last. I have had many compliments as well. I have purchased two sleeves from Sara. Love her leather goods!

It all started with a hard hat

My partner, Martin, had asked me to make a leather band for his hard hat. After wandering down to a local leather store I walked away with a few scraps, a new obsession and completely forgot about the hard hat! Who knew making things out of leather would be so addictive?

At least a year (and how many hides?!) later, I bring you Illo Leather. Named after our 2 boys, Illo Leather promises unique and functional pieces made entirely by hand- no machines are used.

Illo Leather revolves around an ongoing collection of leather goods with limited edition colours and styles. I do custom work as well, feel free to send me a message if you have something in mind!

[And yes, I did eventually finish the hard hat...]
