The Making of an EQUUS ATTACHÉ

See the bespoke attache case featured in this film here A traditional cedar framed Attaché is a fusion of crafts and in this short film we explore the heritage craft skills of the leatherworker, cabinet maker and metalworkers required to make one. A truly 'Made in England' product, the film is shot on location in Westholme, County Durham and Walsall, the heart of the Black Country. Westholme is the 17th century hamlet in the North East of England that is Equus' home base. Walsall was formerly England's industrial heartland whose output powered an Empire but where now the foundry making our brass work is the last remaining in the UK. Watch as the craftsmanship we so carefully nurture brings the wood, leather and brass together in to a finished product. The Attaché is designed not to fulfil the current obsession with FAST i.e fast fashion, fast manufacturing and short product life. It is made to last, made to build a relationship over a lifetime of use with its owner, made by hand, made with passion and craftsmanship, not with a machine. Shot entirely on 16mm film, the organic and analogue nature of the medium reflects the textures, feel and personality of our workshops, where the natural beauty of leather and linen thread needs no digital enhancement. In an environment where many of the tools are older than those operating them and where the beauty of a product is determined solely by the skill of the hands of the maker the beauty of natural light captured on a film emulsion is a natural extension of our creative process.

Making a Handmade Leather Travel Wallet

► GET TOOLS & MATERIALS HERE: ► GET THE PATTERN HERE: Making a Handmade Leather Travel Wallet Leather travel wallets are fun projects to make out of leather because they can be as simple or as complicated as you want to make the - all they really have to hold is a passport! Our handmade leather travel wallet holes much more than that, with 6 credit card slots and two big pouches for ticket, notebooks, receipts, or cash on top of an easy access slot for a passport or a notebook. When making a leather travel wallet by hand, we like to use a saddle stitch to sew and we like to use saddle leather in our construction. This leather travel wallet is made with hermann oak veg tan and Old World Harness leathers, poly threads, and a solid brass snap that we had custom made by Scovill. We also use solid copper rivets from our Sponsor Weaver Leather with their heritage setter, which is an affordable way to set rivets in a solid, efficient manner!

Leather Wallet | Easy DIY

It has been a while since my last leatherworking project, decided to make something easy to get back into it. Ended up with a decent looking wallet that I'm already using and that I like a lot! If you want to make one, here you can download a free template with the precise measure I made mine: Made to print on a regular A4 size paper. The leather I used is 2mm thick, making this with a thicker leather might be pretty hard. I am no leatherworker so take this just as a quick project, I'm sure there are plenty better design. Index of operation and materials: All cutting done with a box cutter and steel ruler I used the pattern on my cutting mat for measuring cuts 0:39 10mm hole punch 1:03 5mm hole punch 1:27 beveling tool 1:58 thinning down the inner side of the card holder 2:25 Sanding edges to smooth everything out 2:55 Folding the two piece of leather together to mark button location 3:24 Setting in the clip button 3:46 Fake chamois leather from a pair of boots 4:13 Dyeing the cuts with brown leather dye 4:52 Leather finish to seal edges 5:10 Burnishing with a pen (anything that fits will work) 5:46 Glueing cards pockets with contact adhesive 7:04 Glueing backing again with contact adhesive (same boots fake leather) 7:49 Glueing two parts of the wallet, care where you add glue 8:23 Sanding edges to make everything nice and square, but also slightly rounding edges. 9:06 Beveling sanded edges to break corners (also sanded off camera) 9:30 Cutting groove for the stitches 9:58 Punching stitches holes with forks 10:28 Leather finish on edges and burnishing 11:12 Sewing with waxed thread 12:17 Weathering outside by removing some color from the leather with alcohol 12:50 Branding iron I made a while back 12:00 Vintage looking numbers Off camera I also applied more leather finish and cleaned well with rag. For those asking where to find tools: I bought mine some years ago when I was starting to make leather sheaths. I went for the cheapest I was able to find. Have been working great so far! Can't find exactly the one I have but the following are pretty much the same and any similar ones will work aswell. Here is all the stuff I used for this project: Stitching punches Hole punches Leather dye Leather finish Awl and burnisher Groover Waxed thread Snap buttons Yes, these are all affiliate links, buy wherever you want. Thanks a lot for watching, I hope you liked the video! Suggestions and comments are welcome.

Making an Equus Handmade Alligator Watch Strap

See our Alligator (and other) watch straps here - Take a glimpse in to the Equus workshop as we make a handmade leather watch strap from start to finish with the traditional hand skills and tools of the saddler and sellier. The work is deceptively simple yet incredibly precise, the materials beautiful yet durable, timeless yet ever changing. The techniques we use are time consuming and take years or decades to master, our products are a labour of love. In an age where luxury is often defined only by a logo and price tag an Equus strap is different, handmade, hand stitched quality, made to last, made with passion and craftsmanship, not with a machine.

The design and creation process of the Lloyd Coat wallet has been a long one. Based upon the design of a 1950s wallet owned by Charlie's (our Creative Director) Grandfather, the first and most important part of our job was not to spoil the beautiful lines of the original, but to bring the design up to date, the original having been designed in a world before credit cards or other such things. A design on paper isn't the end of the story though, and the complex shapes and construction had to be brought together into a single beautiful object, with each element adding to the form, as well as the function of the finished piece. The result is a traditional wallet, the largest in our Lloyd series, but sharing the same beautiful curves that run throughout. Each one takes more than a days work to create, with every stitch meticulously done by hand, but we hope as a result will be passed down the generation as was the original the design is based on.
