Our leather goods have all been made for us by Jason Stocks-Young, a member of the Guild of Master Craftsmen. I love going to his workshop in an old mill on the edge of the Pennines, so many beautifully kept and displayed tools, leathers, threads and an air of creativity and warmth. I feel so lucky to have found and met someone who shares my ethos and is as excited as I am about the limited editions we can create, all naturally different of course.
Our trays have all been cut from the same single hide, a shoulder that comes with all the natural variation, nicks and stretch marks that hint of our cow’s time in the field: a life we celebrate in this range of trays, limited editions and naturally different.
We have used British bridle leather that’s been vegetable tanned and finished in the UK with its famous high gloss shine – picture horses with shiny bridle and reins, that’s the leather!
The finish on bridle leather adds strength and protection, as well as being soft and flexible. Bridle leather can’t cope with heat so is no good for our coasters, but it does work well for our beautiful trinket trays.
2nd class postage and packing to anywhere in the UK is included.
Our leathers are safely packed in British sourced tissue paper and cardboard boxes, Opening the box is a treat with the colourful tissue and the smell of leather.
Leather will age and change over time with the melanin in the leather changing in the light, it develops a patina that’s characterful and unique, reflecting its natural heritage and character.
Keep your trinket trays out of direct sunlight for long periods of time if you don’t want to leave a tan mark.
Other than that, treasure it and enjoy its feel, smell and character.
