As a designer who has been used to work the whole day behind a screen, I realized I was missing something important in my life and that was the opportunity to do something with my hands.
I’m a fan of the amazing atmosphere of heritage goods and brands. I love the fact that many of these companies still make the same quality goods and stick to their origins. Inspired by a real craftsman, I decided to learn the skills myself and just by ‘learning by doing’ I have managed to teach myself the making of quality leather goods.
I work most of the time with natural ‘vegetan’ leather and have developed my own coloring which gives my products a great vintage and heritage look. Have a look at some examples of my work and don’t hesitate to contact me if you want something truly unique custom made….
With kind regards,
