We work with small businesses, startups, aspiring designers and students at different stages of their projects.
We can help with the development of an idea and create the visual material necessary to make the patterns. Depending on the project, we can also take care of sampling and production.
Our clients have different levels of experience so don’t worry if you don’t have the technical knowledge or drawing skills, we are here to help.
All the following services can be either provided in person at our studio or remotely.
Here are our services in detail:
DESIGN AND DESIGN CONSULTANCY
We can help with either a single design or develop a cohesive and complete collection of clothing and fashion accessories.
During our meetings, we will listen to your objectives, discuss your ideas and support you through every stage of your creative project.
We will explain how to deal with aspects of designing such as understanding product construction, creating a mood board, choosing the right materials, defining a colour palette, calculating cost price and mark up for your designs and more.
SKETCHING AND ILLUSTRATION
We can help translate your ideas into sketches and illustrations.
Fashion sketches and illustrations are the first step in bringing your ideas to life.
The basic purpose is communication. They express the mood of the collection/item as well as the general specifications of each product, showing how the final product will eventually look.
We can create technical drawings of your design(s) using Adobe Illustrator.
They are black and white digital drawings showing the product from different sides to display all seams, top stitching, hardware, and any other design details.
Technical drawings are essential to guarantee clear communication between all parties working on your project, to avoid mistakes and wasting time, money and resources.
PROTOTYPING & PRODUCTION
Depending on the nature of the project, we can realise prototypes and small runs of production of garments in leather, vegan leather and non-stretch fabric. Please get in touch with us to check if we can help with your project.
Depending on the complexity of the product(s), we can carry out small to medium bulk production of your design(s).
We only require a minimum of 5 pieces of the same style.

Would 100% recommend booking with the London Leather Workshop. My partner and I spent a fantastic day with Sara, learning the basics of leather craft and came away with two products we were really proud of. Sara was highly skilled and professional, an excellent teacher with interesting and practical tips, but also so lovely to work with. She went above and beyond to make the experience as full and enjoyable as possible and even helped us do some of our own designing! Whether you’re a beginner or have lots of experience, London Leather Workshop is the place to go and we’ll definitely be back!! Read Less

I can not recommend The London Leather Workshop highly enough. Sara and Melissa are incredibly talented, passionate designers and generous, supportive, student-focused uber-patient teachers who made the day a relaxed, stress-free experience. It was so much fun learning the technical skills and craft of leatherwork with the bonus of leaving with a finished practical bag. Whoo hoo, she's a beauty; thank you so much. The biscuits were great too. Read Less

We have been working with The London Leather Workshop for several months on the development of a range of leather products. Their expertise, knowledge, and incredible skill truly is second to none and has exceeded all expectations. Our products look incredible and so much thought has gone into even the tiniest practical details to make our customers as comfortable as possible.
Sara has been exceptionally (and I mean exceptionally) patient as we learnt about the technical side of the design work, with a 'can-do' attitude and such generosity with her time and knowledge. For this we are eternally grateful.
I am thrilled to recommend the team to anyone who has hunted long and hard for a passionate UK-based workshop to help turn their vision into a beautiful product range...look no further! Read Less
