What Makes Me Tick in My Business

As a child I always designed and made my own clothes out of whatever was available around. So there came a time in my adult life when I realised that my artistic skills were still in me, and I decided to do something about it.

I took to leather as I had always loved the smell and feel of various leather types.

My work is very time consuming, as I make everything by hand. Simplicity is the motto of my work. However, as these days there is so much cheap mass-produced stuff out there in shops, my work sometimes seems a little pointless, as fewer and fewer people these days appreciate unique handmade things. However, the inspiration within me keeps me going and gives me hope that someone out there still longs for simple, one of a kind designs.
