It was always a dream of mine to have a working studio /shop open to public Somewhere I can work from whilst engaging with my customers about the things I design,make ,sell and repair.
In Jan 2022 I finally managed to make it happen in the little old town of Kington , Herefordshire. Here you will find me on the ground floor designing ,making and mending.
I prefer to do face to face sales rather than over the internet.
You can come into the shop , try something on and if it fits and you like it , you can buy it , hassle free.
If you want a repair done I will ask you to bring it in so I can see it and advise what is best to do. If I can repair it I will.
I can mend anything from Bell tents , bags to leather jackets and more domestic textile items .People come with all sorts of textile needs.
I love it .
The Old Shoe Shop is a grade II listed building lovingly restored by Bernard Ray of Grandads Shed. He rents out all the rooms to artisan makers like myself.
My opening times are Tuesdays , Thursdays and Friday mornings .The other days are spent working at Gaucho Ninja making bespoke shoes.
I make and I mend. I promote practical fashion for life.
Come visit the working studio, talk textiles . I offer a wide range of heavy duty and domestic sewing services that includes repairs and design. You can buy Sheepskins, sheepskin Gilets, slippers, seat pads and other fluffy accessories in the studio or online here.
Sheepskin Gilets handmade in Kington Herefordshire , using the finest quality British sheepskin.
I make off the peg Gilets as well as raw edge one off designs just like the one you see here
