Our studio designs and handcrafts unique leather goods. It all starts with high-quality vegetable tanned leather, perfect for hand-toolong. We then create our one-of-a-kind designs by combining traditional carving and stamping techniques. Finally, we apply eco-friendly water-based finishes for the antique look and hand-stitch the item.

“My mind is captivated by crafting with leather. Being found of fiction stories, mythology, and vintage styles, I admire traditional handcrafts. I accomplish most with the creation of themed leather designs. Leather crafting provides me a lot of room for exploring and experimentation. While following the traditional techniques and styles, I seek for new themes and approaches. I enjoy projects linked to community cultural life like music and dance festivals. My love to nature viewing, combined with my education in natural sciences, drives my passion in decorating my leather items with floral and marine embossing. Each of my items is an encapsulated memory of a bright moment. It is a souvenir. Leather crafting immerses me into a world where the best stories begin.”
