Welcome to our site.

Spike Cadman has been making leather goods for over 40 years, his initial interest being the product of a misspent youth! In the early 1970’s at a rock festival he bought clothing leather off- cuts and a couple of tools, by the end of the ‘70’s he moved away from using clothing leather and was working in vegetable tanned leather.

Now working mainly with natural russet hide, Spike hand cuts, dyes, stiches and finishes all his products. In recent years he has broadened the range of materials used, particularly for belts, to include pre dyed belting shoulders, bridle shoulders and high quality bridle butts and all his leather is sourced from the UK or Europe.

He makes a wide range of items from key rings, mobile phone cases, purses and wallets, bags, belts and games boards; and items made to customers own designs or specifications.
Please see our photo gallery for some examples of both stock and made to measure items.

Beautiful stock items made from full grain leather, hand stitched and finished:

  • Handbags, shoulder bags and belt pouches
  • Belts made to measure
    including our luxury range made in leather from the last oak bark tannery in the UK
  • Guitar straps
  • Chess and other games boards
  • Purses, wallets and money clips

We also make items to your own patterns and measurements including straps for vintage cars and motorcycles, camera cases and instrument holders. Items can be personalised if required, e.g. named guitar straps.
