Handmade Leather Crafts

I use leather purchased here in England to handcraft all my items.

I create all my designs from first sketching in paper, then transferring the design to card & sometimes I may use my computer so I can straighten out any uneven lines.

All my designs, are hand cut, I use a pencil & a sharp blade to cut out the patterns from the leather. This means I am always with a blade in my hand, that constantly needs sharpening. I use a variety of traditional leather working tools and some everyday objects fashioned into a tools. Old tins to store my tools, and japanese waterstones to shapern my blades.
It has taken years to collect all my tools, many I bought, some given to me, some I made from wood & metal.
Every tools serves a purposes in making an item much more complete.

Items can take days, hours weeks, & sometimes months to complete, I work all hours, so I may be up at the crack of dawn or burning the midnight night oil. If you want something bespoke, custom made please bear this in mind that it all takes time..
I make design, pack, list, photograph everything that you see in my shop, unless stated otherwise.

Leather is far one of the most fascinating materials that I have ever used, it bears its history , where at once time, it would have been one of natures most beautiful creatures, living a life amongst other cattle, grazing on grass, & being out in the open in all weathers, all this elements make each hide unique, variations in texture, smell and feel which makes leather so fine. & sought after. With a little care, it will last a lifetime.


Custom options? Because we are all different. if you are prepared to wait a few days longer for a customised option, you may prefer a different colour?
Send me a message & I will let you know what I can do, if its not too much trouble then all it will cost you is a few extra days in time for me to fabricate your request. If i need to purchase more materials to meet your request then I will let you know, if its something I can or can't do.
