Handmade Artisan Leatherwork

He who works with his hands is a labourer. He who works with his hands and his head is a craftsman. He who works with his hands, his head and his heart is an artist.

About Apricity

IN AN AGE OF MASS PRODUCTION and questionable quality, where obsolescence is often built in, Apricity Leatherworks invites you to take a look at a selection of bespoke leatherware items in the gallery below which shows examples of the craftsmanship, design and quality of our products.
Apricity is a small Artisan workshop near Brighton where I work with a passion to make beautiful and distinctive leather goods, every item being hand crafted and hand stitched with care and attention to detail. Creating luxury items to love and to cherish today and for years to come.

Bespoke Leather Creations

ONLY THE BEST MATERIALS are used for the products I make:

  • J & FJ Bakers in Devon, the last remaining Oak bark Tannery in the UK, for top quality bridle leather
  • AA Crack & Sons in Northampton, at the historical heart of the leather industry, for Stevedore Belting leather
  • Solid Brass, Nickel or Stainless Steel fittings from Abbey, England
  • All items are hand stitched using the finest threads – Lin Cable thread for our small bespoke items and Tiger thread for increased rot resistance where products will have more robust use
  • All edges are bevelled, burnished, dyed and polished to ensure durability and a beautiful finish
  • All leather items shown on this website are entirely handmade and finished here in Brighton, England
