We all know I love my local, small businesses. I just love promoting Perth creatives and their amazing products. Today’s post has been long in the making, but I’m finally getting around to telling you about Hammered Leatherworks!
Hammered Leatherworks is such an intriguing local Perth company, run by the lovely and vibrant Bec with her husband, Adam, by her side. I met Bec at a local creatives get together in December and I instantly fell in love with her business and designs.
She designs, sources and creates wonderful DIY kits for you to make yourself, or give to a crafty loved one. These kits are made from genuine leather pattern pieces, along with all accessories and instructions needed neatly wrapped inside the package. Not only do the kits come with a clear instruction booklet, but Bec also uploads concise video tutorials to YouTube for you to follow along with. Most of the designs also come with a matching thread colour, or a bold thread which you can use to sew your product together with. For me, local businesses don’t get much closer than this, as Bec’s Perth warehouse is only 15 minutes away from where I live!
I bought myself the Wrist Watch Kit in Khaki for Christmas, and labelled it ‘with love from Kody’, how did I know that it was exactly what I wanted!? One lovely evening I made myself a nice cuppa, logged into YouTube, and sewed my watch along with Bec’s tutorial, choosing the matching tread.
Sewing this was a really enjoyable experience, and at the end I was left with an excellent watch, custom made to fit me. I think these kits will be perfect gifts for any of my crafty friends!
