Enjoy your journey through my magic workshop
I have been a crafty and artistic person my entire life and travelled through many kinds of artistic or crafty work. After a long journey through my skills and talents I found leather to be my real "true love". This material offers such a wide range of possibilities for creating something beautiful, yet lasting and individual. Each item I create in my cosy little workshop is unique and crafted with love and dedication, be it custom work or new items I develop. My aim is to combine beauty, usefulness and quality in my every work and I always like to take a stab at new techniques and features to expand the facettes in my creations.
Love is in the detail
I love using vintage tools that I find when I'm strolling trough fleamarkets. It's a great joy for me to restore them and make them shine in new splendor.
Many of those tools aren't manufactured like this anymore and often the knowledge about their use is fading. For me it is a challenge to reawaken this knowledge through utilizing these vintage tools in my craft.
Best sources for best quality
From the very beginning of my career as a leather crafter and artist it was my goal to only use the best quality leather I can get.
As I create all my products with much love and dedication, I want this good energy to be transported through my products. So my customers can always rest assured that my leather material will be from tanneries in Germany or Europe. Preferably I am using vegetable tanned cow hide and occationally also sheep skin.
My way of conceptualizing
I love the creative process of conceptualizing an idea. A sheet of paper and a graphite pencil is what I use to turn the pictures in my head into a visible structure.
Through my rough sketches I can see the feasibility of my idea and I can also in the forefront see limitations and adapt them right away. That enables me to adjust to my customers wishes and it also gives me a great basis for my further work process.
