New compact wallet design

dscf1157

This new compact card wallet stays slim and comfortable in the pocket. Designed to carry 6-8 cards and a few folded notes – just big enough for the essentials. It’s hand cut from sheep nappa leather, with a bright striped lining and bound edge construction. The over all dimensions are 102mm x 139mm when opened out.

Available to buy here.

You can also see my work at Bristol Harbourside Market, every Saturday and Sunday up to Christmas 2016, between 11:00 – 16:00.

The wallets above are brand new pieces developed from this sample work.

They’re hand cut from a combination of sheep nappa and cow hide leathers. Expertly machine stitched, and fully lined with cotton linings, they can be made to order in your choice of colours/feature. Contact me to discuss a commission here.

Current styles are available to order from my Etsy shop here.

 

Prototype testing – cycling map holder

IMG_1636IMG_1637

Here’s a custom cycle map holder I just developed and prototyped. I wanted something to fit the free Sustrans paper route maps and attach securely to my handlebars. It’s constructed with a single piece of flexible acetate, leather edge binds, velcro straps and a pop fastener to close. It should be shower proof, but the weather this week didn’t allow me to test it. What a shame…

A few more tweaks and I plan make them available in my Etsy shop.

New work May 2016

DSCF0129Just added some new pieces to my online shop here, including a variation on a large purse style I originally made a few years ago. These new designs have hand stitched details and can be made to order in different colours.

All new pieces will be available to buy from my Bristol Harbourside stall on Sunday 29th May… so long as they aren’t snapped up from my Etsy shop before then!
