When asked, I explain that I am a traditional English leather worker. Traditional means that the tools, materials and techniques which I use can be traced back in history for hundreds and, in some cases, thousands of years. Hand stitching is at the heart of all I do - I don't own a sewing machine.

I use these skills to make new items, repair and restore used ones, and to teach people on a 1-1 basis.

After more than twenty years experience I have a wide range of skills to share.
