Hand crafted leatherwork by Black Orchard
A selection of my work.
Leather Travel Journals
I make leather journals in a variety of sizes and leathers. Using veg tanned leather I can tool into the surface and create a beautiful embossed design before hand dyeing the leather to your colour choice. I also use pre dyed chrome tanned leather for some journals and use pyrography, burning the designs into the surface of the leather with a fine heated tip. Both techniques allow me to create very detailed designs and as you can see from my examples the subject matter so far has been wide!
Custom Leather Guitar Straps
Custom made quality leather guitar straps. Made to order to your own specifications from top grain veg tanned leather, these straps are hand tooled with a design of your choice and then dyed with professional water based leather dyes before being finish coated with a natural wax to protect the leather from the inevitable abuse it will get from a gigging guitarist! As a guitarist of 25 years myself I know exactly how tough a strap needs to be and iI can assure you that these are TOUGH! They can be made one piece, buckle adjustable or with a looped tail piece adjuster.
If you really want to stand out from the crowd with a custom strap, look no further! Band logos, studs, brass work, anything your heart desires, I can create so contact me for a bespoke commission.
Pricing on guitar straps starts a around £95.00 plus p&p.
Phone and Tablet Cases
These phone, tablet and ipad cases are made to fit your specific model and can be made as a snug fit or a bit more roomy with a felt lining. As with all my leatherwork I can tool or burn designs onto the surface and dye them a variety of colours.
