A 5mm flat cotton braided cord was used to provide the reinforcement. I made a tool to roll the leather over the braid.

Office Desk Leather Top

2024

-

An office desk bespoke fitted leather cover. Ok, this was a new build so not exactly repair and restore! This desk is just over 2m long. There is not a hide big enough to do this in one piece, hence the French seams. The cross stitches were done by hand.

Bespoke leather corset design project

May

2024

-

This project was part of a collection designed by a final year design student. The client worked with me to make and realise her design. The leather used was natural veg tanned lining leather, wet moulded, hand dyed and machine stitched. Bottega Vaneta Intrecciato was done on the side panels, connecting to plain panels on the front and back. The necklace strands are real leather, cut and split to size and thickness, hand dyed and braided using the 4 strand round braid pattern. The Turks head knot holds the nails in place, which can be slid up and down the tassels.

I was sent photos and the original (plastic) article with a request from the customer to replicate in leather. The customer wanted 'an exact' copy, although we did decide on a Mexican edge braid which was not on the original.

Bespoke Shop Hanging Rails

May

2024

-

5 bespoke shop hanging rails. The customer supplied the leather and I sourced the thread after they had chosen the colour of the thread. I did samples using Baseball stitch, Cross stitch, butt stitch and straight stitch. The cross stitch was chosen. The edges of the leather were first skived, then folded and punched using a 1mm punch tool. Punching with a round punch gives a nicer look than using an awl.
