Designers

All of our chosen designers and craftspeople have a huge passion for what they do and many have been brought up in the family business where skills have been passed down from generation to generation. The pride in their product is not only demonstrated in the design and production but also in their choice of raw material suppliers, with many sourcing their leather hides and hardware from tanneries and manufacturers in the same region.

All of our designers either have their own workshops or work very closely with local manufacturers. This enables the Designer to be involved in the whole process and therefore brings about a huge attention to detail that is clearly demonstrated in the finished item.
