My idea for making leather jackets came to me in 2016 where I discovered samples of leather that looked amazing and thought it would be really fun to try and make one so I did; this really ignited a passion in me for leathercraft.

I taught myself how to make a jacket from an existing one I had, then developed the patterns to change the style and create the perfect fit.

It also happens to be a personal favourite item of mine which is why I absolutely love making them.

Each one of my personalised leather jackets is made from high-quality leather sourced from an ethical leather merchant in Northampton UK and you can read more about why I use real leather here 

All handcrafted by my fair hands from my home studio in North Yorkshire UK.

I have options for plain jackets or designs with a personalised design to your requirements, where each design is hand-drawn and cut out in leather to create a truly unique investment piece just for you.

Ready to become a Total Luxe Rebel and be that badass you deserve to be.​
