“Creating things has always come naturally to me. That coupled with my love for horses led me to saddlery and leatherwork.
I am a Society of Master Saddlers qualified saddler and use traditional saddlery skills in all my leatherwork.
When I’m not in the workshop, I can usually be found out in nature with animals of some kind.
I take pride in every piece I create – I only use premium materials and even though it’s a bit cliché, a little bit of love goes into every stitch.”– Lucy
Premium Materials & Award Winning Leatherwork.
Lucy Ellis Leatherwork was launched in 2019 after Lucy discovered that there was a lack of genuine, high quality leatherwork available. As a Master Saddler, Master Bridlemaker and Master Harness Maker, with years of experience in the equestrian industry, Lucy understands the importance of correct workmanship. She strives to create beautiful products using traditional methods so they are built to last, just like the good old days.
Quality, Bespoke, Handmade
Rather than succumbing to the pressures of mass production, we value quality over quantity. Almost all of our products are made to order, which also means each one is individual and easy to customize.
Pride in every piece.
We’re passionate about creating a sustainable future. That’s why the leather we use is all traceable, a by-product of the meat industry and tanned using plant matter instead of nasty chemicals. We source our materials locally and all our packaging is fully recyclable.
