Vegetable Tanned Leather
Our accessories are crafted from the finest Italian vegetable tanned leather. This type of leather is dyed without any chemicals - instead, natural tannins like bark and flowers are used. A veg tan leather purse will get better with age and develop a beautiful patina full of character.
We are committed to producing high quality products here in the UK, working with factories in East London as well as in the North of England, ensuring Kate Sheridan products are made with care as well as supporting British trade.
In House Crafting
In addition to our amazing teams of crafters, we also produce ranges of leather products in house in our Clapton Studio and Store and regularly host workshops to share our love of leather work with others.
