Here is a short video showing just a few of the processes involved in bag making.  The video was created by the talented @sixeightvideo who was a pleasure to work with. I'm not one for being this side of the camera but I surprisingly loved every part of it.

MORE ABOUT SJH HANDCRAFTED

Welcome...  My name is Sarah and I have always loved crafts in various forms. It started with making items on my sewing machine for friends and family but one day a class in leather work caught my eye. I took that class and from there I was hooked.  Working with this material, appreciating its source, it's durability and the potential for taking a simple item to the luxurious is what makes it extra special.  

I enjoy working with clean lines and bright colours which results in timeless items that can be treasured for years to come. 

All the items you see are handmade.  I cut each piece individually, hand sew and finish every item myself.  This creates an individual item just for you. On occasions I even find myself experimenting with dyes and patterns directly on the leather which creates something truly unique.

The leathers used are bi-products of the food industry. I use veg tanned leathers which reduces the negative environmental impact in comparison to leather using chrome tanning methods. Veg tanned leathers also develop a natural patina which improves the appearance and feel of the product over time.  This is an item that has the potential to last a life time with a just a little care and attention. 

If you have any questions in relation to any of the items you see or would like further information, do not hesitate to contact me.
