Wolfram Lohr has been working with leather for over 20 years after initially learning shoe making with various makers in Brighton. He branched out to create an accessories range of luxury handmade leather goods soon after seeing a need for good quality, long lasting and stylish product for his customers.

Wolfram has grown in the UK crafts scene and has been exhibiting at fairs and trade shows for several years, travelling to the USA, Paris, Frankfurt and London.
