In my workshop I only use top quality leather. I predominately use British leather but I also have Italian and American leather.
For my belts and dog collars I use shoulder that is around 3.5mm thick. The shoulder cut is strong and flexible; making it perfect for belts and dog collars.
For my wallets, purses, passport holders and journal covers I use a range of leathers that are slim and soft, giving a lovely feel to my products.
Products made from quality leather will last for years and develop a beautiful patina showing the wonderful journey you have had with your product.
Leather is a natural product, with each item responding differently to tooling, staining and treatment adding to the individuality of each item.
All my leatherwork products are hand tooled so everything I make is unique with its own special character.
I exclusively use vegetable tanned leather. This is the traditional process of tanning leather (using tree bark to tan the leather) and uses fewer chemicals than modern methods, which is better for the environment.
My finished products are treated with a protective cream to make them water resistant. Like with all leather products, if taken care of can last for years.
I enjoy creating fresh and new designs using this traditional craft.
