Leather Craft Handmade in Wales by Colin Jones

My grandfather worked as a saddler in Bridgend, Wales over eighty years ago. The things I make today would have been made in very much the same way, with mostly the same techniques all those years ago. It would be quite possible for him to take my place in my workshop for me to get a coffee; if only we could build a marvellous time-travelling machine which would allow such a thing to happen.

I came to leather work myself while recuperating from a mildly serious operation. It started as therapy, but I soon found myself taking to the craft like a duck to water. Slowly I began to get good at saddle stitch, then I started finding my own way into the craft.
