Welcome to the leather workshop!
This started out as a passion project based on the family's shoes repair workshop, originally established in 1955. It was driven by the passion for traditionally handcrafted goods and also the challenge of repurposing leather materials. Reaching its third generation of craftsmen, we still proudly preserve old traditional working tools and crafting techniques developed in over 50 years, whilst maintaining the link with the modern world and technology through unique and functional designs handcrafted in very limited numbers.
Design follows function
Each item captures the aesthetics of hand processing whilst the overall design is the refined result shaped by it's main function. Durable and minimalist are the main attributes derived from these leather accessories created to satisfy the most exquisite tastes when it comes to durability and functionality. Whether it’s an iPhone sleeve, a minimal wallet or a watch strap we personally test each prototype for extended periods and we refine its design over and over to achieve the best balance between form and function.
The collection of minimal handmade accessories incorporates the traditional values as a core component of the production workflow (natural leather treatments, edge burnishing with beeswax, stitching on wooden horse) while combining these processes with new technology such as laser marking and accurate vector patterns developed in-house. The pieces are often fine adjusted based on leather thickness to deliver a quality fit item that will age beautifully with daily use.
