Real Ale Reds

Real Ale bottle tops adorn these red cuffs.....I am hoping to meet some morris men over the holidays to wear them for some promotional photos. I think the tops are such fun and well they make me happy!

Party Time!

Party Bags for the festive season....The one above is an Ivory Bow Belle tote bag in Ivory faux snakeskin leather...very lush........A4 sized with a zipper section inside.

The smaller 'Sparkly Party Bag' is made out of a gold tinged siver leather with gold handles.
It has a turn lock fastener on the front.... very cute.
Both are sitting in the shop anyone going to a party?

Briefcase order for Matt Stone

This briefcase was another special order ...the colour is espresso and the whole briefcase worked out beautifully....somewhere for his laptop, clothes and a section at the front for books.

Headteachers Bag

This cherry red briefcase bag was a special order as a retirement present for a local head teacher.......I think she will love it. The maple and rowan leaves represent two of the classes in the school.

Box bags and a new workbag/satchel

I have just finished a batch of light olive bags...two box bags, little essential 'fit it all in' bags that sling over the shoulder and a laptop/briefcase. I decided to leave off with the lining to reveal the glorious green colour which usually gets covered by the pigskin lining.

Starting out

I am a full time maker designer living a rural life in Devon England. I have just opened a shop in Chulmleigh selling handmade leather bags and accessories.
My intention is to produce leatherwork and the first posts there will be more leather bags as I build up the business but I am an avid follower of the painting a day movement and enjoy the stimulation of daily posts from painters around the world.

These bags are from the 'contemporary workbags ' range in seasonal pumpkin coloured leather.
There its started!
