Custom Wallet Remakes

A bespoke piece based on a customer’s existing wallet. I borrowed the original wallet, measured up and made a pattern by hand, including a few design alterations on request. All the pieces were hand cut from a combination of sheep nappa, cow hide and cotton lawn lining. After glueing the pieces in place the wallet was expertly machine stitched together. The finished item was the solution to a long and previously fruitless search for a replacement.

Bespoke Leather Watch Straps

Occasionally I take orders for replacement watch straps, here’s one I made for a Nixon watch. The outer leather is cut from fine-grain dark brown cow hide, the backer is soft sheep nappa leather. The buckle was reused and the original dimensions matched very closely.

This replacement strap was remade in a custom colour scheme. The outer leather is cut from tumble grain eggshell cow hide, the backer is smooth red cow hide. The buckle was reused and the original dimensions were matched very closely.


Another early piece, custom made in smooth red and tan cow hide leather for a Diesel watch. Again, the buckle was reused and new rivets applied to the finished strap.
