If you enjoy crafts
...and you can thread a needle you'll be able to follow our easy instructions to create your own individual leather bag, rucksack belt and accessories.
You can even make your own shoes, boot and sandals. Our foot comfort is legendary and you'll be so proud to have made them yourself.

Our handmade leather kits have everything you need - there's nothing to cut or glue and all the holes are pre punched so it's not even hard on your fingers! You'll be hand sewing using simple stitches like running stitch and backstitch.

Our shoes, boots and sandals really are ' the most comfy shoes you'll wear ' and as we create each pair using a different mix of pattern pieces we can accommodate odd sized left and right feet and even single shoes.

If you love the idea of something made by hand plus fabulous foot comfort, but don't want to make them yourself - our entire range is available Ready Made by our skilled team so you can use them straight away.
