All pieces are hand cut, machine stitched and hand finished. Custom commissions will be considered and personalised gifts are a speciality.

Just posted to my online shop here. Black leather wallet with zip coin pocket and notes divider. Smooth nappa leather outer with fine grained cow hide inner. Fully lined with 7″ singles print lining (I’ve spotted MCA, Two-Tone, Epic, Motown…)
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.
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.
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.
