It was the eighties - I was 21 years old and my sister wanted a pair of suede pants. I had already delved deep into the world of sewing but it all revolved around fabric fashion - no leather. The rest, like they say, is history!
Leather clothing shifted into leather accessories. It was then that my skills as a leather smith truly began to flourish. I taught myself bag making and have spent years designing and developing an extensive small leather goods line.
If it can be made in leather, I have probably made it, whether it be belts, blotters, leather hassocks, motorcycle side saddles or even leather wedding dresses.
