I have worked in the leather industry for more than 29 years covering all aspects of the handbag and accessories trade ranging from samplemaking, patternmaking, benchwork and machining to gain a high level of expertise and craftmanship. Prior to working, I studied Manufacture and production of Leathergoods at Cordwainers College London from 1987 to 1989.
In 2002, I designed and created my first collection of leather accessories using simple shapes with touches of colour detailing. My work over the years has developed to be stylish and functional, keeping up with the ever changing modern tech world, with colour.
All the backpacks, bags, belts, small leathergoods and dog accessories are designed and individually made by me in my workshop, in Woolwich, using traditional and modern leatherworking skills, using carefully selected leathers sourced from England, Italy and Europe.
I regularly take on bespoke one off commissions for people who want to turn their ideas into reality or to have their old favourite bag remade.
And I also work with businesses who require small batch production making products such as leather boxes for an electrical engineering company to leather folders for hotels. If this is something you are looking for or have any questions, then you are very welcome to contact me for a discussion.
