About RBK Leather Crafts
I got into leather work completely by accident. Up until 2014 I wouldn't have known what a saddle stitch was and as for a seam well that's where coal came from wasn't it?
Then at one of the country shows I trade at (my other life as a landscape and wildlife photographer) I saw someone making a leather knife sheath and I thought "that's cool", "bet I could do that". So began the journey to where I am today.
Learning about edge bevelling, saddle stitching and generally covering everything in leather dye (everything but the leather in some cases).
Since last year I have been selling the odd leather product from my photography stall at Tynemouth and Alnwick Markets, now though after some encouragement I will be running RBK Leather Crafts along side my photography business.
Every item I make is truly hand made, I hand cut the leather, it is then hand dyed, hand tooled, hand stitched and then finished by my hands.
If you have any questions please, please get in touch my email address is or my mobile number is 07412345297.
Thank you for taking the time to come to my new website.
