Wolfram Lohr has been working with leather for over 20 years after initially learning shoemaking in Brighton. He branched out to create an accessories range of luxury handmade leather goods soon after seeing a need for good quality, long lasting and stylish products for his customers. The brand has grown from a one man band to a partnership between Wolfram Lohr and Sarah Gardner. Together with their team they run their successful business and leather making courses from their eclectic studio in Hove. Wolfram Lohr has also grown in the UK craft scene and has been exhibiting at fairs and trade shows for several years, travelling to the USA, Paris, Frankfurt and London.
Wolfram draws creativity from bringing old and new together. He has a passion for traditional leather crafts and his own personal collection of vintage objects, from leather bags to hats to clothing is a constant source of inspiration. He takes shapes from vintage products and adapts them into modern accessories, creating a balance between functionality and contemporary design. His current product range consists of strong belts, wallets, stylish handbags, beautiful rucksacks, messenger bags and desk items.
All Wolfram Lohr products are handmade using high quality, traceable, Italian vegetable tanned leather and is created with a passion for quality and strength. They are made to last gaining more character as time goes on. Each product is also stamped and dated with an individual reference number, this highlights the artisanal qualities and makes the product unique for each customer. We recognise the importance of slow fashion, sustainability and small batch production and we strive to bridge the gap between mass production and the craftperson.
Commissioning a piece of work is really exciting – it is a chance to have something made especially for you and an opportunity to really engage in the creative process.
Perhaps you need accessories to go with a particular outfit or a piece of furniture to fit a specific space in your home. We can work with you to design something truly unique. You’ll be able to discuss your ideas, likes and dislikes with the Maker and together create a piece of craft, handmade for you.
This is just a first step, so don't worry, there’ll be plenty of chances to discuss details before finalising a commission.
