Bare Naked Design specialises in bespoke, hand-stitched leather goods. All my work is made completely by hand using traditional leather-working techniques and hand tools, many of which have not changed in the past 200 years. By using these techniques, the finished product is unrivalled in its quality and longevity. I only use the finest top-grain vegetable tanned leather which is traditionally tanned in either Italy or the UK. This leather develops a beautiful patina over its lifetime, as the tanning process does not look to cover up the skins imperfections with artificial finishes.
I look to create modern and vibrant designs which will last many lifetimes over, in revolt to the throw-away culture that the fashion industry has created.
