Leather Swatch

Choose from around 40 colours!

Each pair of shoes is individually made especially for you. This means you have a greater choice in what your shoes look like. We use top grain leather which is the highest quality. We describe them as ‘full-grain’ the ones with a slight shine, ‘nubuck’ a suede like finish, ‘ripley’ rippled effect on the surface and extra soft or ‘waxed nubuck’ a more casual look with wax pools on the surface of the leather.

Whilst our styles can be made for you in the colours shown on the product pages, we can also make your shoes in any colour displayed on our website or even multicoloured. If you have spotted a colour that isn’t an option you can leave a note at the checkout of what you would like or just drop us an email to double-check. You can view our online gallery here which will give you lots of ideas!

Our leathers aren’t always the same, they come and go. We often get a couple of new colours around once a year. We have popped some examples of our current leathers below made up in a variety of styles.

Our Facebook & Instagram page is a great place to find examples of shoes we have made in different colours by special request. We currently have around 40 different leathers to choose from so if you would like to receive some leather samples through the post, let us know which colours you would like and we will happily pop some in the post to you so you can see them in the flesh!

All our leathers come from 3 UK companies who we have worked with for over 20 years. We use the highest quality leather which is strong and durable. The leathers we use come from tanneries located in Europe (Germany and Italy) and are a by-product of other industries. We often use industrial waste leather from big companies who don’t have a use for it anymore, rather than letting such a great product go to waste. Our suppliers work with reliable and ethical tanneries and suppliers that conform to REACH standards.
