Wolfram Lohr has been working with leather for over 20 years after initially learning shoe making with various shoe 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 products 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.

Recognising the importance of slow fashion, sustainability and small batch production, Wolfram strives to bridge the gap between mass production and the craftsperson through his leather products and teaching leather work skills to others.
