Anita Nemkyova

category: Leather   

region: Wales   

Accessories label Anita Nemkyova was set up as a project to create beautifully crafted pieces. Every product is skilfully designed and made by hand in my workshop, ensuring high quality throughout the entire manufacturing process. With an emphasis on ethically and environmentally conscious production, I collaborate with sustainable British and Italian tanneries, using primarily vegetable-tanned leathers. This is an old artisan process where only natural extracts and dyes are used in order to be environmentally friendly. Leathers treated this way keep their natural look and unique character. With my passion for sustainability, materials such as cork or pinatex will be added to our seasonal collections, along with recycled materials such as canvas or recycled leather with the aim to reduce / reuse / recycle. My seasonal collections include accessories from bracelets to belts and body pieces, lifestyle products such as bags, backpacks, wallets and other leather goods.

Bask Bindery

Bask Bindery is noted for its fresh approach to the age-old profession, the bindery is set to shake up the industry with its handbound journals uniquely fused with striking collages designed to be covetable by the beholder and beyond. All pieces produced by Bask Bindery are designed to have the “oooh factor”. Truly individual, each piece is made by hand with high quality materials and include detail such as hot foil tooling, suede or leather onlays to add extra dimension to the collages.

All journals are Bradel Bindings. Bradel binding can be traced back to the 18th Century and the bookbinder has juxtaposed this traditional binding form with vivid modern collage designs to create standout handmade designs that retain functionality. For example, each journal can open fully. Each collage was digitally printed before covering the outer boards to create a truly distinctive handmade journal.

Kay Morgan

category: Fashion Accessories   Leather   Textiles - Clothing   

region: South West   

I design and makes leather purses, bags and accessories. Based in Bristol my range includes jewellery, corsages, hair accessories, small coin purses, large purses, clutch bags and handbags.

Every piece created is cut and assembled by hand ensuring it’s uniqueness. I enjoy experimenting with floral shapes, which are all individually hand cut to create dense areas of interesting texture, maximising the sculptural qualities of the soft nappa leather. The purses are lined with quirky coordinating patterned linings. All fabrics are carefully sourced so combinations keep changing in order to keep items individual. All items are hand-crafted with every detail carefully considered ensuring each item is both functional, beautiful and tactile. I enjoy creating beautiful containers such as purses and bags for people to carry around their treasured possessions, which are as beautiful on the inside as they are outside.

Rosanna Clare

category: Fashion Accessories   Leather   Textiles & Stitch - Interiors   

region: South East   

After completing a Masters in Textile Design, with my love of upcycling and repurposing I have developed a range of jewellery and accessories made primarily from offcuts and recycled materials of wood and leather. My designs are mainly influenced by geometric shapes and patterns but many pieces are dictated by the nature of the shape, size or form of the materials available. Having nearly a decade of teaching experience behind me, I have built up an extensive range of skills and I am very lucky to now have the luxury of time and space to make my own products and to experiment with different techniques and styles.
