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 Tote Bag


Henry has designed a variation on his classic shopper bag. He has stripped away some of the (possibly unnecessary) detail to leave a simple, strong useful carry space that is easier on the pocket. There are four sizes and all have his usual tough fabric lining with a zip pocket and 2 patch pockets. The handles are all 23″ long but if you want to specify the length you would prefer, please email Henry.
