My Creative Process
All my leather designs are handcrafted by myself from vegetable or oil tanned, food sourced top quality hide, using non-toxic water based dyes. My style has been called 'illustrated leather' because of my artistic renderings. Hand-stitched, hand-riveted, hand-dyed, hand-cut and uniquely designed by myself or inspired by traditional sources. All artwork is completed by my own hand using a tooled/carved process and then dyed or painted. I build each piece to stand the test of time, using traditional hand tools and techniques. My pieces will shape themselves to fit your form and develop a pleasing individual patina with age and use, this is all part of the ownership experience.
My leather luggage and bags are built completely by hand and hand stitched throughout. I use military spec hardware where possible for the toughest finish and utility. My designs are unique to me although I do sometimes draw inspiration from classic designs but put my own spin on it. They are made to serve you for a lifetime, this means I put many man hours into each piece, I take great pride in my work.
Many of the items available are unique one offs, even if I produce another similar item it will always vary slightly, no two are exactly the same.
My leathercraft collections are curated with a purpose in mind. I am constantly experimenting with designs, techniques and function to bring you something truly individual that you are happy to use everyday and that will last you for many, many years.
