I have now accepted orders for all my remaining stocks of raw materials and intend to retire when I have completed and delivered them. So I have removed all the order buttons. I still have the equipment and premises and am happy to do any repair work.

I would like to express my boundless appreciation to all my customers – particularly the ‘returning’ ones – for allowing me to make a living from such a pleasurable activity.

But there is every possibility that later next year I will want to make a few articles for my more persistent customers so have decided to start a ‘reserve list’ for customers who might want me to contact them in this event.

I really enjoy making leather bags and am still able to do that well enough. It’s keeping all the small business plates spinning that I feel too old to do anymore.

If you would like to go on that reserve list then please email me.

The Zipper


(254x330mm / 10″x13″)

Henry sees so many of this basic design on the street that he thought he should build his own version – with attitude – out of good looking, tough leather. The front pocket has pen slots and a pouch for glasses/iPod/phone whatever. There is a zip compartment on the back to keep sticky fingers away from particular valuables when in crowded places. The bag is big enough for A4 formatted paper and an iPad but not files or regular laptops.
