I have opened the Atelier out of love of extraordinary crafts and design that brings people together.
Over the last fifteen years, I have learned to design, restore and create luxury bespoke handbags, shoes, travel cases, and wonderfully unique family heirlooms for my clients and established business in London like John Lobb Bootmakers.
The Art of the Saddle Stitch
The saddle stitch is a refined, balancing act between two needles and one thread. There is no need of power nor force to push the needles through and weave each not, step by step. Read more about why we insist in using hand stitching over machine stitch in our Journal.
All our products are designed in London and crafted to stand the test of time. Made to endure, our products are simply, an invitation to consume less disposable fashion without compromising on style, expressing your unique character.
In our Journey, we strive to master centuries old techniques passed down by exceptional Craftswomen and Craftsmen. We craft each handbag by hand in our London Atelier Read more about techniques in our Journal.
We strive to bring joy to the experience of creating one of a kind bags and leather-goods for you and cherish the honour of becoming part of your story
We believe in the power of one-of-a-kind connections and decided to grow organically as part of our community. We believe that staying close to the processes of making we can create better quality handbags, be more responsive to you, our clients, and ultimately, together, live a more fulfilled life.
Sustainability & Responsibility
All our leather goods are made entirely in our atelier in London, so there are no elements of the production process that we do not control. We never waste anything, off-cuts always find a delightful repurpose. We are committed to making our manufacturing footprint a very faint one.
We share our customers values, of sustainability.
Where ever possible we choose Eco-died leathers, Vegetable tanned leathers so we’re sustainable and climate positive. This applies to our entire supply chain. All our handbags are free from toxic substances and 100% plastic free.
