London Leather Shopping Trip

London Leather Shopping Trip


This is a brand new course available. After many requests from you lovely lot I have arranged a trial of our "1 Day London Leather Shopping Trip." Buying leather can be quite overwhelming at the beginning as there are so many different options and prices. So we have arranged a day to visit all of my favourite places for leather and hardware shopping in London. 

Prior to our shopping trip I will contact via email to discuss your objective for the day. Will you be sourcing things specifically for a design you have in mind or are you just interested in the experience of buying leather? If you have a specific design in mind we will go through what you will be looking to buy while we are in London. I would highly recommend bringing with you a wheely suitcase so that you don't have to lug around any heavy carry bags.
