Red Bike Leatherworks creates charming, timeless leather pieces by hand, stitch by stitch

I am Jess Laird, founder of Red Bike Leatherworks and a second generation leatherworker. My mum was a saddler, making and fixing equestrian items from her workshop at home and as I work with the leather now, the deep earthy smell evokes images of me assisting with small tasks like threading needles and punching holes.

As a disinterested teenager, little did I think that 20 years on, with a set of hand-me-down tools and some offcuts of leather, I would open Red Bike Leatherworks!

Very little has changed. I use the same techniques, tools and materials that my mother used; I have simply swapped saddles for handbags!
