Welcome to the Leather & Thread journal, where you can keep up-to-date with all that's going on in our workshop and read our musings on leathercraft and all things leather. But please don't judge us on our writing, we're leather workers not wordsmiths.
A warm welcome to the new and improved Leather & Thread website!
It's been many months in the making and taken many a late night and abundant cups of coffee to get there, but we are finally live! We hope you like the end result as much as we do.
Why the big change?
To quote the legend that is Bryan Adams, here at Leather & Thread everything we do, we do it for you. We wanted to make our new website as workable and user-friendly as possible for you, our customers.
For instance, we've changed the navigation on our site to make browsing our handmade leather items as easy as possible. Should you know exactly what it is you're after, you can simply select from the category menu. Alternatively, if you're still not sure what floats your boat, you can simply browse all of our handmade leather wallets, purses, card holders, belts and accessories all on one page.
What's more, we've made it quicker and easier to personalise your items by adding initial embossing to your order without having to add an additional product to your order.
We've also added a brand-new review feature, so you can read what other people have to say about our handmade leather items. Now, there's no excuse not to write us a review if you've purchased from us in the past though, we really do love hearing what our customers think of our work.
We didn't stop there.
As some of you may have already noticed, we've also been working on upgrading all of our product imagery. We've switched to a plain white background, meaning you can now view every detail of the item you're browsing, and gaze at its true colour in all its glory.
Keeping you in the loop.
And don't forget our awesome new L&T journal, keeping up-to-date with all the goings-on in the Leather & Thread workshop, and giving you the inside track on what goes on in our workshop (we don't just drink coffee all day, honest). You'll never be stuck without something to read on the toilet again.
Finally, and a little more boringly, we've gone to great lengths to make our website as secure as possible. We've added a new payment gateway, enhanced SSL security certificate, as well as a customer login area, so you can easily track the process of your order.
We're pretty darn pleased with how it's turned out, but we really want to know what you think. Have a look around and let us know if you spot any typos (go easy on us, we're leatherworkers not copywriters after all).
And remember, we're still the same handmade leather workshop you know and love... we've just had a bit of a makeover.
