THE LIVING PAST AND PRESENT
It’s not enough to know and respect our roots and traditions. We are to find them a place in our everyday lives. Any beautiful a piece of folk art might be if it doesn’t match with your outfit you won’t give it a chance. I strongly believe in using the millennia-old Hungarian motifs in a fashion suitable for modern wear.

HERITAGE IN LEATHER
Isn’t it disturbing that we live in a world of mass products, and there is no real uniqueness among clothes and accessories? You can’t avoid coming across ’yourself’in the street time to time. Fortunately, uniqueness is not a question of money. All you need is a spark of imagination, knowing yourself and the drive and bravery to show it to the world.

HAND-MADE QUALITY LEATHER PRODUCTS
With twenty years of experience I produce such accessories and various leather products such as bags, pouches, wallets, belts, jewellery, or accesssories for archery. All my products are a 100% hand-made. I create the patterns, cut and sew the leather by hand. As I closely follow the needs and expectations of my purchasers you can be assured that you won’t see the same product on somebody else and the item you buy will be unique and will perfectly match your style. You’ll be able to carry on your valued traditions while being trendy at the same time. But of course I draw not only on Hungarian motifs so wish you follow any other traditions of the world or just have your own pattern in mind I will surly meet your expectations. On top of all mentioned I’ll happily apply any pattern or text on any sort of leather product lets say your name or logo on a belt or folder. With leather the possibilities are infinite: from engraving the image of your precious pet to a sheet of leather to creating a picture on your wall nothing is impossible.

Welcome to my Shop!

My name is István Steixner, I was born in 1984 in Székesfehérvár, Hungary. I was 10 years old when I first got acquainted with folk crafts by favour of Sarolta Pásztor leather artist. As of this time, I continuously improved my skills: during primary school years, I learnt enameling and goldsmithing from Judit Korcz and Csaba Fehér; wood carving from József Berta and applied graphics from István Bauer. This led me straight to the School of Fine and Applied Arts where I was majoring in leather crafting then to Lórántffy Zsuzsanna Secondary School, Dunaújváros where I was majoring in leather-goods crafting. My results at the Outstanding Student of the National Trade competition has convinced me even more that leathercraft is the most suitable profession for me.

EXHIBITIONS, FESTIVALS, EVENTS
At this time, I met the leather artist, Anita Molnárné Lukács who recognized my skills and talent and helped me to further improve and train myself. With her support, I suceeded and won the first place at many tenders, national and county competitions in the category of fine-, applied- and folk-arts. I also asked her for opening my first exhibition in 2004. Since then, I had up to 20 exhibitions and salons. At this time, I was already a demonstrator and led study groups. I learnt calligraphy and diploma writing by autodidactic way as well as I studied about ethnography and art history. As of 2003, I was invited to many artisan markets, festivals, individual- and co-exhibitions. I received Sárvíz art prize. Afterwards I went on with my studies at the School of Folk Crafts and Arts in Budapest where I could attend classes of famous folk craft artists, Anna Petrás and György Petrás. Festivals, exhibitions and markets are still very personal to me and I like visiting such events and places with my products that helps me to keep up an even more personal relationship with my costumers. Over the course of the past years, I had the chance to visit more than a hundred of such events. That time I had more time to assess needs, new trends and show my work and products.

BEYOND LEATHERCRAFT
I worked as a leather craftsman lecturer in Sárbogárd between 2006 and 2008. In 2007, I initiated together with my crafts colleagues The Source of Traditions events series in Aba; also I was elected as a member of Magistrates of Aba. Since 2008, I do leathercraft as a full time job and I make customized articles of personal use, bags, jewelleries, pouches and accessories for archery. In 2010, I did a cultural project manager course of TIT (Scientific Informative Association). I continuously look for new ways to improve myself therefore I have been studying frippery work since 2010, bone and horn carving since 2011 and wood carving since 2012. Together with many fellow craft workers, we teach these old craftworks. Every summer, I organize programs, craft and teach at different folk art events. Since 2013, I do craftwork for business too. It’s always a great experience when I’m asked to design and create something new and unique or to restore some real unique pieces. In 2016, I moved to Dunaújváros, where I started “developing” my business and myself. In 2019, I moved to a new workshop with my staff, where, thanks to the excellent team, I have now produced nearly 10,000 works, in 44 countries worldwide, on a wide variety of topics. In 2018, I joined the Heves County Chamber of Industry, where together with my creative colleagues we take our program package and creations to fashion shows here at home and abroad. In the same year, I submitted my “Griff Collection” application to the Hungarian Chamber of Commerce and Industry for the first time, with which I immediately won the Outstanding Hungarian Handicraft Excellent Award. In 2020, I took 3rd place at the Eger Junior Expo - National Entrepreneurs Exhibition. Also this year, I was awarded the title of knight as chief captain and president of the 1956 World Federation of Knights; and with my premium men's bag set with stingray inserts, I again won the MOST EXCELLENT OF EXCELLENCE- Outstanding Hungarian Handicraft Master Award. The line of recognitions continued, in the XXVI. At the Professional Elite Charity Award Gala in October, I was awarded the Gold Star of the Year EXCELLENT PROFESSIONAL OF THE YEAR 2020 Award! In January 2021, I had another honor: I was admitted to the repository of values in Dunaújváros.

IMAGING OF FOLK ART
I aim to show through my work all those objects and themes that belong to the Hungarian nation which never changed or faded away through history. My works thrive on this several thousand-year-old world of patterns showing them in their own way or customized to the present era. I try to adopt the ancient Hungarian tradition in a modernized way. I can combine tradition with any modern style as per the customer’s preference. It pleases me that not only Hungarians but also foreigners are very much interested in my work. Because through their orders, the Hungarian culture can spread out to the farthest part of the world, thus making our ancient patterns and folk art recognized and well known worldwide. But, certainly, not only Hungarian themes are used to decorate my work, patterns are customized as per the customer’s preference. There is no limit!

ALL MY WORK IS HANDCRAFTED TO THE LAST STITCH
All my work is based on individual ideas and made by hand from designing the pattern through tailoring the leather up until the last stitch. I pay significant attention to each product therefore I may work on only one piece at a time, until it is brought to perfection. Beside using good quality Hungarian leather, I prefer using other natural materials like wood, bone, horn, felt or beads as well as I make my products perfect with goldsmith accessories. If you are interested in my products, you can see photos of them under My Work menu!
