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 Large Shopper


(14″x12″x4.5″/355mm x 305mm x 110mm)

Henry designed the large shopper to carry A4 files and laptops without the bag looking like a satchel or briefcase. But it works just as well as a large handbag. The tough cotton drill lining has a zip pocket and two patch pockets for phones/glasses etc. The two shoulder straps are cut to 20″/500mm (measured from top of bag back to top of bag) but, for no additional charge, you can specify a preferred length in the queries/requests box that is part of the order form. Or you can have adjustable buckles on extra long straps for an additional £15 (re: queries/requests box).
