Partnership for Studio Burke: Bridle Leather, Bespoke Production, Made in England, Briefcases, Handbags, Luggage, Leather
at Studio Burke means working the best of the best master craftsmen and women to produce extraordinary custom leather goods.
We most frequently produce business cases and a customer will typically choose all the details such as leather color, interior lining, hardware & lock style, shoulder strap, et cetera in order to create a case to specifically suit their needs and style. Our range also includes handbags and travel items.
We can also accommodate true Bespoke, from scratch designs. We would be happy to discuss a completely custom project with you. We have designed many wonderful pieces including trunks, ostrich attaches, Gladstone style bags, and many more.
Below are a handful of images that show leather goods at different stages of production in our little workroom in Saffron Waldon.
HAND CUT PATTERNS
Each piece of leather in the bespoke process is hand cut. A selection of special tools are used to cut, smooth out the edges of the leather, create needle holes for stitching, measuring the folds in each gusset, polishing, and piecing together the final product. A typical business case will take about 16-20 hours to complete.
