  • About Cornish Leather Craft
    the time care and effort that goes into each and every one of our carved leather products First the design is chosen drafted and transferred onto tracing paper Next the leather is chosen measured and cut to size Even this is not a straightforward process as leather comes in different grades qualities and thicknesses having been tanned in different ways not all leather is fit for carving and the correct leather has to be chosen for its fitness for purpose think about the difference between a suede jacket or a bike jacket or the difference between a sheepskin leather handbag or a pair of DMs The next step is to wet the leather and transfer the design from the paper to the leather this is done using a not too sharp stylus or pencil After the leather has begun to dry out a little the design can be cut carefully into the leather with a knife This is where the really tricky bit starts A bevelling tool and leather mallet is used to follow the edge of the cut design this causes the design to become 3D and to stand out from the leather The speed and movement causes burnishing a change in colour of the carved area Different tools and a stylus are then used to finish off the pattern to create scales background effects water patterns and to finish off the 3D effect I usually experiment a little on scrap leather until I get the effect I am looking for Finally the carved leather cut out is prepared for finishing in this case the bible cover needs holes around the edges so that the inserts can be stitched with leather cord To complete the piece a dye can be used to colour the leather or to keep the

  • Examples of Cornish Leather Craft's work
    greyhounds running and some celtic knot work incorporated We added press studs so that a trophy buckle can be added at a later date We thoroughly enjoyed this one from start to finish We were asked to design a guitar strap with a nautical theme incorporating a band logo and a kraken As the band is from Port Isaac we took the coast outline from google maps so that the local areas are showing This is one of our favourite pieces to date This bag was a comission for the daughter of someone who has had one of The Leatherman bags for years How fitting that the leatherman s kid should be the one to create a bag for the daughter She sent us a jpg of a feather and of a bird she liked We adapted the image to fit the front of the bag and decided to have the tail feathers drifting over the top and down the back We were very pleased with the finished item Other examples of our work These items are not for sale as they are all test pieces with flaws or were made as gifts for friends and family One of the first pieces I did for myself a cover for my carry around notebook It was made with two fronts so I could write in the book from either side I learned spanish edge lacing for the edging This uses lots of lace but I think you will agree it gives a lovely finish The book is secured with some left over lace The front of my leather notebook cover the butterfly copied from a tattoo and the primrose being one of my favourite local sights you know it s spring when the hedges have yellow measles The other front The
