London Leather Shopping Trip

London Leather Shopping Trip

£50.00

Our "1 Day London Leather Shopping Trip" is back.

After many requests from you lovely lot I have put together an itinerary of my favourite leather and hardware shops in London. A few have recently moved or sadly shut down so I have selected a new combo to visit:

Alma Leathers - 12-14 Greatorex Street, London, E1 5NF

GH Leathers - 26 Cambridge Heath Road, Whitechapel, London, E1 5QH

J.T Batchelors - 9-10 Culford Mews, London N1 4DZ

London Trimmings - 41B Antill Rd, London N15 4AS

Buying leather can be quite overwhelming at the beginning as there are so many different options and prices. 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.

We will be getting public transport tubes, trains and buses so a travel card would be ideal.
