“HandMade by Helen” … Quality Must-Have Italian Leather Goods…

Posted on Updated on

Purses/Bags, Ornaments, Eyeglass holders and much more….. “Mulberry” Trained Machinist….. Christmas gifts with a difference. Unique and hand made. Come Check Them Out at MakeItWorkshop!

This really is a first for MakeItWorkShop.  We have been so fortunate to acquire the skills of the wonderful Helen who has trained at “Mulberry” one of the leading handbag  labels.  Helen worked at “Mulberry” making luxury leather handbags and is no stranger to the leather industrial sewing machine.  Not only was Helen taught complex hand-cutting techniques from a senior member of the bag-making team, she was taught a range of skills: cutting, stitching, skiving (shaving off the edges of the leather pieces so the pieces sit right together on the seams) and inking (dyeing the exposed leather edges in tones that compliment the leather).

Using a variety of wonderful materials which include Italian leather, iridescent leather, Glittered leather, Snake skin and Faux Crocodile, Helen has created a range of wonderful goods exclusively for MakeItWorkShop.

Dependant of the type of leather used prices range from £6 to £12 for the Pull-Up Purse.

Make Up Purses


Iridescent £15……Detailed £12…… Glitter £12…
