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DSCF0129Just added some new pieces to my online shop here, including a variation on a large purse style I originally made a few years ago.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

Navy leather billfold wallet

DSCF9253DSCF9263DSCF9256

Just finished this navy leather billfold wallet, available in my Etsy shop here. It was hand cut from quality fine-grain navy cowhide leather and durably machine stitched with strong nylon thread throughout.

Fully lined with a bright multicolour stripe print fabric and expertly hand finished. The hand punched triangle motif on the front of the wallet shows the contrast lining colours underneath.

A fold down section with 3 card slots flips up to reveal a further 3 card slots. Each card slot holds 2 cards each, so twelve cards in total.

There is a hidden pocket behind the card slots for receipts and papers, and a spacious notes pocket to fit paper money up to 8cm x 20cm.

The coin pocket has a quality metal YKK zip, and the side panel expands to allow easy access to plenty of change.

All cut edges are hand treated for durability and give a superior finish.

I welcome custom orders and variations on current styles, contact me to discuss your requirements here.
