How we work
We work with our clients to achieve the product that they are looking for. Being a small growing company our priority is quality and we will not compromise this. We will not take on work that we feel we can not complete in the time frame required, as this will only have an impact on the quality of goods produced. We normally allocate a certain amount of time per project which takes into account our resources at that time. If you require an urgent job, there would be a premium price as it would have to be done at premium times (i.e. weekends or/and out of hours and this would also depend on availability of resources). The best approach for our clients is to allow plenty of time from sampling to production. In our experience this can take months and not weeks.
Made in England, each item is made and finished by hand, with many being completely hand stitched. As a result all of our products are as individual as the makers and the people that use them. We do not use any computer controlled machinery but do need to use basic leather working equipment and tools.
Using our reliable high quality industrial sewing machines. With some of the products we use the traditional ‘saddle stitch’ technique. It is the best method of stitching two or more pieces of leather together and lasts a very long time. Hand sewing with ‘saddle stitch’ will not unravel if one loop is broken.
Our hardware is made from the best materials on the market for example zips used are mainly Riri which is manufactured in Switzerland and of particular high quality.
We source the finest leathers available. The hides we use are tanned using both organic and mineral processes. The tanning and finishing process determines the final characteristics of the leather in terms of suppleness and structure and we choose the appropriate leather to suit each particular application.
