Growing up in the Midlands we have always been aware of the rich history of the local leather industry. We moved to London to work in marketing and design, but when we found out about the terrible waste of goat hides going on in Britain, despite knowing nothing about leather production, we decided that we had to act.

Our wider team now includes local leather industry veterans, a leading accessories designer, our team of makers in Somerset and Jack's father Charles, who manages the tannery. Together we hope to prove that there is life in the British leather industry yet.
