Our Belief

At Leather & Thread we don’t subscribe to the mass production, throwaway culture that we see increasingly today.

We believe that the products we buy should be unique, they should be designed to last a lifetime and get better with age. Our handmade leather wallets, purses, card holders, belts and accessories will become a part of their owner. Telling their story with every use.

At Leather & Thread we are firm supporters of considerate consumerism, which means we make a concerted effort to minimise the effect that our work has on the environment. All of our materials and processes have been carefully selected to ensure we stay true to this belief.

Every leather skin that passes through the Leather & Thread workshop to make our handmade leather items is a by-product of animals that have been farmed organically for human consumption. We only use high quality vegetable-tanned leather that has been produced using traditional, environmentally-friendly techniques. Where possible, we source our materials locally, from small independent businesses. In addition a​​​​ll of our packaging is made from recycled materials and designed to be used after your purchase, rather than just tossed in the bin.

By investing in a Leather & Thread item you are making a stand against the throwaway culture we live in today, and in doing so helping us to stay true to our belief.
