Announcement    Hello, I'm Rosanna, a designer and maker of leather goods, welcome to my shop. I love making bags and accessories from leather and many of my designs are inspired by Art Deco and geometric shapes.

After nearly 10 years as a Design & Technology teacher, I gave up the day job to pursue my love of leather craft. Within 2 years of setting up the business I was commissioned to write the now very popular leather craft book ‘Sew Luxe Leather’ published in 2018. The book comprises of 20 projects complete with step by step instructions, templates and detailed information on tools and suppliers to get students started in the craft (available in my Etsy shop!).

One of my passions is reducing waste and utilising leather in every form. I love to ‘upcycle’ leather products like old jackets turning them into handbags for their owners. This led me to taking part in the BBC TV programme ‘Money for Nothing’ where products destined for the tip are transformed by artisans like me. My debut appearance was in series 9, shown on November 5th 2020 on BBC1, with more to come in 2021 so watch this space!

I thoroughly enjoy being able to pass on my knowledge of leather craft to others by running a series of workshops at my Surrey studio. But if you cannot make it in person I have a range of DIY kits available here that come with video tutorials and instructions so you can do them in the comfort of your own home.

About rosannaclaredesigns

Sales 558
On Etsy since 2011

Teacher to Leather worker

After completing a Masters in Textile Design, with my love of upcycling and repurposing I have developed a range of bags and accessories made primarily from offcuts and recycled materials of wood and leather. My designs are mainly influenced by geometric shapes and patterns but many pieces are dictated by the nature of the shape, size or form of the materials available. Having nearly a decade of teaching experience behind me, I have built up an extensive range of skills and I am very lucky to now have the luxury of time and space to make my own products and to experiment with different techniques and styles
