Announcement   Everything in our shop is designed and made here in our Cambridge, workshop (in the case of T shirts we buy the T shirts but all the screen printing and decoration is done here).

If you are a fan of interesting, original, well thought out design please take a look at what we do.

The main techniques we use in our work are leather craft and image design. We love working with leather, applying new techniques for finishing products, constructing and decorating them. Screen printing is also a mainstay of our work and we print on T shirts and some of our leather.

We are constantly refining and developing our range. For our Mens Karabiner Bags we've spent years developing it and have sourced a wonderful oiled, thick, brown leather but for our purses and make up bags the colour is the most important thing and we have a range of fantastic coloured leathers. Our Mens T Shirts feature striking graphic designs which are also easy to wear contemporary designs. Purses, make up bags, belts, wash bags, cardholders, Dopp bags and satchels are all part of our range. With love combining unexpected materials, adding quirky prints or using interesting personalisation options.

As we make everything here if you would like a modification or personalisation chances are we can help out so just get in touch.

About

Self taught Designer Makers who make everything themselves; from key rings to workshops

We are Ros and Ed the pair of Designer Makers behind Stabo. Ros grew up near Cambridge, UK and Ed in Sevenoaks, Kent, UK. We both always loved making things and spent many happy childhood hours constructing and building but neither of us imagined we would make a career out of it.

In 2001 Ros started selling some of the tops she had created from mens shirts on Portobello Road Market, London. We ran this stall for 18 months until we left on a year long visa to live in New Zealand. We set up a little boutique shop there on Cuba Street, Wellington. By the time we returned to the UK in 2004 we were making mens and womens shirts, T shirts, skirts and ties, bags and wallets. We got a stall at Spitalfields Market in London and also one at Cambridge Craft Market which we ran for the next ten years.

This allowed us to buy a little house in remotest north Cambridgeshire and build our first workshop. We now live right next to Cambridge in Impington. Our collection of self built workshops numbers three as do our children. Stabo's range has grown broader and includes printed mens T shirts, leather purses, make up bags, wash bags, we make beautiful and original leather manbags and are always developing new ways of decorating the materials we work with.
