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.

 

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DSCF0129Just added some new pieces to my online shop here, including a variation on a large purse style I originally made a few years ago.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!

I’ve been experimenting with new making techniques in the past week. This piece has an intricately hand cut and inlaid Art Deco style motif of my own design. The individual panels were carefully selected from suede, stamped cow hide and full grain leather to give contrasting textures and carefully machine stitched in place.

Traditional techniques only; hands, tools and sewing machine. No computers!
