Over the years our relationship with the food industry has grown stronger and stronger. From chefs using goat meat keen to show the whole story from nose to tail and beyond, to restaurants looking for custom leather menu holders made to the highest standards in the UK.
We offer a bespoke service from design to sourcing and production. Whether using our own British goat leather, deer leather, or carefully selected leathers from the best tanneries in the world, we'll collaborate with you to find the best solution for your hospitality project.
Previous projects have included premium leather-bound menu covers for Akoko, bespoke tortilla holders for Kol and leather aprons for Silo. As well as many more for the likes of Fortnum & Mason, The Ledbury, The Palomar, 67 Pall Mall and The Ned.
Leather menu covers
Dining is an immersive experience which utilises all five senses. So yes, the presentation of the food itself is important but so are all the little touches in the eating environment. Including the tangible menu your customers hold whilst choosing their order. One of our most popular bespoke restaurant products is our custom leather menu covers which can be crafted in various styles and shapes to match your branding.
Customised with your branding
Our leather menu covers can be personalised to suit your restaurant’s style and the cuisine that you serve. You can choose a menu colour that ties in with your décor and each leather menu book can be embossed with your logo or other chosen wording.
There are plenty of options when it comes to customisation. We have 6 different set menu styles to choose from including A4 and A5 menu boards, leather menu book covers, elastic and screw strip books, screw spines and a classic 8-corner style available in A4 or A5. Or, if you are looking for something totally bespoke, we can develop leather menu covers with custom dimensions and designs.
We offer British goat leather in 4 core colours: Chestnut Brown, Black, Forest Green and Navy as well as deer leather in Bark Brown. However, we also source exceptional cattle leathers from the UK and Italy. For large orders bespoke colours can be created, so if you want something different, we are happy to explore the possibilities.
Our soft leather menu holders start from £40 each for A5 deer leather elastic menus. The minimum order quantity depends on the menu style and whether you have selected any options from outside our core range but starts at 10 units. Get in touch to discuss your bespoke requirements.
Leather Bill Presenters
Bring a touch of luxury to the final moments of your service with our premium leather-bound bill presenters. We understand that settling the bill might not be anyone’s favourite part of the evening but with a branded bill presenter, you can ensure that your guests’ experience stays special right to the end.
Originally created for the Ox Barn at Thyme in the Cotswolds, our custom bill presenter has become a firm favourite with our restaurant clients.
Customised with your branding
Leather is a great choice for a luxury bill presenter. It’s durable yet stylish and the nature of the material makes it possible to brand it with your choice of design or wording. You could opt to emboss your restaurant logo front and centre for example or choose a simple phrase thanking customers for their visit.
Our fold-over bill presenters measure 220mm by 120mm when folded and feature a single slip internal pocket; the perfect size for holding an itemised bill. Like with our leather menu covers, there is a choice of core and bespoke colours to choose from and you can select a leather, suede or microfibre lining.
Minimum order quantities start at 20 units. Prices per leather bill presenter range from £20 for unlined cowhide designs upwards. Options outside our standard range will incur additional costs to cover development and tooling and will also have larger minimum order quantities.
As seen by
Since we first transformed a farm building in the Midlands into our small-batch tannery in 2016, we have worked with a wonderful range of clients, helping each to add additional luxury touches to their eatery while still aligning with their branding and ethos.
Recently we worked closely with Aji Akokomi, the founder of the West African fine dining restaurant, Akoko. We created a full range of bespoke leather goods including leather menu covers, branded bill presenters and coasters. All were crafted from Chestnut Brown goat leather and featured an embossed logo. The custom leather menu holders had screw spines, with Aji opting for brass hardware to complement the warm hues of the leather. Since our first collaboration, we’ve even revisited the project to create presentation holders for the restaurant’s tasting menu.
We’ve also worked with plenty of other establishments across the hospitality industry including Pensons, a Michelin-star restaurant located in Tenbury Wells, The Mulwray, a wine and cocktail bar in the heart of Soho, and the private members club, 67 Pall Mall.
All of our goat leather is sourced from Cabrito, the UK's leading ethical goat meat supplier which in turn sources from Delamere Dairy. We take the leftover goatskins that were previously going to waste, and turn them into bark-tanned leather in our own small-batch tannery.
Our premium leather menu holders and range of restaurant accessories are then made in our UK workshops from this exceptional material. This uniquely circular approach adds another layer to your restaurant's sustainable story.
