About me:                                                                           In leather working, I am influenced by vintage objects and new, modern design solutions. When ever possible and suitable I use recycled leather in my works, for an ideal ecolological design.

My muse is material and my playground is leather with all its magnificence, freshness and elasticity.

At first I have to find inspiring material, then comes subject and then starts the game of creation. To be honest, most of the times I can’t wait to be back at studio.
I design and produce individual custom orders of leather binding and accessories.
