About us

The History



Albert begun his career with leather in 1972 as an artist/craftsman (hippie leather worker) producing leather bags/belts using British harness making techniques, materials and fittings, selling them at markets and country shows. Over the last 35 years the company has been involved in all aspects of the leathergoods trade. Designing, making, manufacturing, wholesaling, importing, exporting, repairing, cleaning, restoration, teaching etc.

During all these years we have always had a shop in Oxford and our mission statement is the same now, as it was then … “To be recognised as the best leather shop in the world.”
