DSCF1834

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.

I’m taking commissions in other colours. Click here to find out more about the purse, or contact me to discuss your new wallet.

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 concertina purse style, green calfskin with peacock lining

green leather pop purse 5green leather pop purse 3I 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.

Approximate dimensions:

120 x 75mm when closed and empty
2-3mm thick at stitched edge
Maximum 20mm thick
