Hello, I am Sally Thompson and I am mad about leather.
Working with it or wearing it, I think leather is one of the most beautiful, luxurious and tactile natural materials available. I am also passionate about good craftsmanship; if something is designed and made well then, to me, it’s a work of art =)
My work is inspired by shapes found in architecture, nature, couture and origami. I look at all manner of handmaking techniques from around the world, ancient and modern which I then experiment with to create my own techniques to produce unique leather designs.
All my leather products are handcrafted by me – from initial concept, through the planning and cutting stages to putting together the finished article. My website allows me to show you what I have made and on the ‘What’s on the Makers Table’ page you can see how I carry out this process of manufacture.
