Handcrafted leatherwork made to last a lifetime, becoming more beautiful with each passing year. Offering a wide variety of pieces, including tote bags, crossbody purses, belts, wallets, card cases, dog collars, cuffs, and more, it is my intention to provide long lasting leather items that will travel with you joyfully through life and grow better with age and wear.
I began working with leather soon after inheriting a leather purse made by my grandmother, Norma Hayden. I received compliments on the purse everywhere I went and was often told “you can’t find leatherwork like that anymore”, so with this in mind I gathered up my grandmother’s leather working tools and began learning the very satisfying art of turning precious animal hides into functional, durable, wearable pieces. After making my first belt in 2007 I haven’t looked back.
When I first began, I used a lot of my grandmother’s patterns. However, over time, I have developed my own style, which is inspired by traditional leatherwork, the English countryside, all things equestrian, and a life lived exploring wide open spaces.
