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.

Small Satchel


(13″ x 9″ x 4.5″ / 330mm x 230mm x 115mm)

Henry makes the small satchel from the same grade and weight of full grain leather and robust construction as the large handmade leather satchel. Not roomy enough for a conventional laptop but can accommodate the iPad and A4 paper (but not an A4 file). Its smaller size makes it appropriate to serve as a handbag. The shoulder strap is 1.5″ / 38mm wide and made from a double thickness of leather and is adjustable down its whole length.

The basic bag is an empty shell with a single front buckle closure, and back zip sleeve. If, however, you want to customise the design by adding one or other add-on option, the price would change accordingly. You can specify any changes you want in the ‘queries/requests’ box in the order form which Henry will confirm by personal email.

Price: £130

Your add on design choices are:

  • Double front buckle with integrated flat grab handle +£25.
  • Upgrade to raised handle +£5.
  • Front pocket feature including pen slots, phone pouch and internal zip pocket +£40.

You can stipulate the length of the shoulder strap (measured from the top of the bag, up, over, and back to the top of the bag) for no additional charge.
