The trade has been taught and business passed down through generations of the family and is currently in the artisan hands of father-daughter duo Douglas Baggott and Sarah Hunt.
Doug Baggott has over 60 years’ experience in the leatherwork trade and is known and respected worldwide for his craftsmanship. He successfully supplied many major retailers including Harrods, Fortnum & Mason and Brooks Brothers in New York to name but a few.
Sarah is equally well respected for her leather craft and has carved a strong brand name in the marine sector supplying heavy duty cladding to superyachts in Palma de Mallorca, also in the classic & vintage car sector supplying leather straps worldwide.
Packing up, Sarah and her travelling workshop attend events across the UK year round where she makes your bespoke belt right in front of you. She tours with her impressive Royal Navy Collection of handmade tankards & champagne buckets, wallets, purses and much needed gloves at those winter Christmas markets.
All articles made by The Leatherworker are handmade using the most exquisite selected hides sourced in the UK, hand sewn using two needles and a saddle stitch with heavy duty waxed thread. This time honoured trade produces quality products that really stand the test of time.
