Welcome to GoodHiding Leather! Here you'll find details of my unique range of fine handmade leather products. In addition to the items featured on the site, I also produce a wide variety of specialised leather items, for example...

• Knife and sword scabbards, quivers, holsters, belts and other items for historical and re-enactment groups

• Accessories for motor cycle enthusiasts, individualised to your requirements

• Quality fashion items such as hair clasps, pendants, wristbands and belts

• Decorative panels for individualising bridles, saddles and panniers

• Personalised straps for all manner of musical instruments

• Sculptures and fine art items

• Repair and renovation of your leather items. If you have a worn-out leather product, I will attempt to reproduce it.

If you want it, I can probably make it for you! Here are a few examples of my work- click on a thumbnail to see a larger version.
