Melissa Simpson has worked in the leather industry for more than 29 years covering all aspects of the handbag and accessories trade ranging from samplemaking, patternmaking, benchwork and machining to gain a high level of expertise and craftmanship. Prior to working, she studied Manufacture and production of Leathergoods at Cordwainers College London from 1987 to 1989.
In 2002, Melissa designed and created her first collection of leather accessories using simple shapes with touches of colour detailing. Her work over the years has developed to be stylish and functional, keeping up with the ever changing modern tech world, with colour.
All the backpacks, bags, belts, small leathergoods and dog accessories are designed and individually made by Melissa in her workshop, in Woolwich, using traditional and modern leatherworking skills, using carefully selected leathers sourced from England, Italy and Europe.
