A bespoke leather designer producing hand stitched leather articles.

I work with beautiful vegetable tanned leather, which lends itself to hand stitching. Leather is sourced from across Europe and bespoke work can be created using leather from British tanneries. Based in the West Midlands I have access to wide number of leather dealers as the area is famous for it's manufacture of quality shoes and saddles.


I have a number of designs which can be tailored to meet your personal style and I enjoy working from customer's early ideas and sketches to help create their own completed design, which will last for years and whose day to day use adds to the rich patina of the piece. My work includes

  • briefcases
  • handbags
  • wallets
  • belts
  • repair work to that much loved leather article 
  • reproducing your favourite but worn out article
