ABOUT THE LONDON LEATHER WORKSHOP

 

– WHO WE ARE –

The London Leather Workshop is an artisan studio offering a wide range of products and services, such as leather supply, sewing machine rental, working space availability, garment and accessory consultancy, sampling, manufacturing and learning opportunities.
We are a small team of makers and designers who, as well as working on their own products, are also happy to share their beloved studio’s facilities as well as making their personal skill set available, at an affordable rate.
Through classes, one-to-one training and collaborations, we intend to promote learning, ideas and skill sharing, as well as providing services, tools and materials, such as leather, for a reasonable price.
The aim is to create a friendly environment and share our passion for creativity and practical skills, as well as helping other designers and makers to achieve their own goals.

– WHAT WE OFFER

The London Leather Workshop supplies light and medium weight genuine Italian leather skins and hides with the most exclusive finishing, offering high quality at very competitive prices.
At the conception of our own design project, we struggled to source the kind of high quality, extravagant leather we required in the UK, so we started travelling to Italy and discovered the beauty of Italian leather and the immense variety of its finishings.
Astonished by the quality and diversity, we decided to import some of the Italian leather manufacturing traditions to London, and now we have made it available to other designers by selling part of our stock.
At the moment we do not stock a large quantity of leather of the same type (maximum 20 skins of each type) but instead we prefer to focus on the variety of styles and colours (about 200) which is what we struggled with years ago.
Besides selling leather, we welcome everyone to hire our industrial and domestic sewing machines, tools and some space inside the workshop. To know more about our facilities, please visit our Workshop Facilities page.
Having experience in leather goods, handbag and garment production and sampling, fashion drawing and illustrating, as well as fashion and accessory design and consultancy. We are able to help you with different aspects at varying stages of your project. To know more about what we offer, please visit our Our Services page.

– PROJECTS AND DREAMS FOR THE FUTURE –

The London Leather Workshop started as a small project by two friends who were looking for a wider range of raw materials in order to be able to express their own creativity without limits.
Having experienced struggle when studying and working in the industry, our dream is to provide assistance and possibility to students, teachers, designers and other businesses who are all on their own journey, by providing high quality goods and dedicated services at fair and reasonable prices.
We think we found something special and would like to share the wonder of this natural product, which has always been a symbol of quality, beauty and durability, in order to help others along the way.
Also, we love the idea of allowing makers and students to use our facilities and we are really keen on creating a very friendly and relaxed environment in our studio, where we can enjoy working and also sharing ideas and projects!
