Just finished this new layout as a special order for a customer; plenty of room for cards, a handy external coin pocket, two hidden pockets and pop fastener to close.
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.
Recently made to order for a customer, a replacement watch strap for a Nixon watch. The outer leather is cut from fine-grain dark brown cow hide, the backer is soft sheep nappa leather. The buckle was reused and the original dimensions matched very closely.
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!
Just finished working on this… added a hand stitched leather crossbar protection on my friend’s new bright red Brompton fold-up. I measured out and hand cut a strip of tan leather, pre-punched the stitch holes and carefully hand stitched it to the frame pulling it tight along the way. This will help prevent scratching the crossbar when locking up, and also gives a beautiful personalised finish!
I just finished a new purse design and posted two colour options in my Etsy shop here.
The purse is hand cut from soft, fine-grained pale green calfskin. Durably machine stitched with strong cream nylon thread and expertly hand finished this is a compact purse, perfect for cards, change and folded notes.
The purse closes securely with a gold finish nickel popper and is fully lined with a vibrant peacock feather print cotton fabric. The bellows construction gives three separate expanding sections, and two mini slip pockets between the main sections.
The cut edges are hand treated for durability and give a superior finish.

Recently made to order as a gift for a film buff…
The wallet is hand cut from soft calfskin leather throughout. The wallet is two tone: black outer/grey inner with contrast yellow stitch. The lining is printed with film reels (familiar to anyone who has been in a cinema projection room) and was supplied by the customer for this special order. The hand punched initials give an extra personalised element.
