Covid19 and Born to Thread
Hey everyone! I hope you’re keeping safe.
Born to Thread is still operating and taking orders as usual at the moment.
Everything is made to order in house by myself so I make sure that my workroom is cleaned and operated in a safe high quality way.
At the moment my leather merchants is still open and I can still order the leather to make jackets.
My posting day will be limited to one day a week and probably on a Friday. Currently there is about a weeks delay with Royal Mail so deliveries will be a little slower than usual.

I shall be watching the governments advice on how to keep safe during the coronavirus outbreak and follow all the relevant advice.
Sending lots of love to you all at this time and if you have any questions please do contact me.
Remember wash your hands and stay home!
I’ve found my perfect leather jacket; do you do replica’s?
I do NOT make direct copies and this is something that I am not comfortable with doing.
However, I am happy to take ideas and elements as inspiration to help design your perfect jacket.
Are Born to thread biker jackets real leather?
Yes my jackets are made from real leather and its is sourced ethically from a well renowned leather merchants in Nottingham called GH Leathers.
As leather can seem to be bad for the environment it’s actually more sustainable and long lasting than PU leather which is essentially plastic.

How long does a woman's biker jacket take to make?
Each one of my woman’s biker jackets are made from scratch so that means when you order – I make it.
If you are looking at a personalised jacket please allow 6 weeks to get in touch but it can be made within 4 weeks.
Made to order:
Jackets that are made to order from my shop can take 2 to 4 weeks depending how busy I am.
How much is a personalised leather jacket?
As a guide price:
Small designs start at: £373
Large designs start at: £450
(This prices also includes the jacket)
* This all depends on the fabrics and design involved the price can vary as I need to price the fabric and time accordingly.
I have several options when it comes to payment:
Pay the full amount or Payment plan
I usually ask for a 50% deposit from the full amount to cover costs of the fabrics, then you can either split the rest of the costs down in to one or two final payments, all I ask is for the payment to be completed before I post the jacket out.
I accept PayPal or Bank transfer via an invoice.

Do I need an appointment for a bespoke jacket?
It’s not necessary as I can discuss most things over email or Skype/video call but I do offer appointments if this is something you wish to do.
All measurements need to be correct when sending through for a bespoke jacket – this gives a more accruet result on a handmade outfit.
I do offer a measuring and fitting service and you will need to be available to visit my studio in Yorkshire.
Prices will be quoted on consultation for this service.
How does the custom design option work?
All my jackets can be personalised to suit whatever design you have in mind. When it comes to creating the designs I use a mixture of leather and glitter fabrics to create a cool unique effect.
Each design is handrawn first with your idea and colours in mind, I then take this to a digital copy to send to you to makes sure you are 100% happy with how it looks.
I can work with a majority of colours and text, so if you have a particular colour or style in mind then please feel free to ask.
Once you are happy with the design I will then take it to the jacket keeping you updated on the process and to make sure you are still happy with how it is looking.
