About 1066 Leather

1066 Leather is based in sunny Hastings on the South Coast of England. Full of History and Cultural Art I have lived here all my life.leather_work

Not being able to buy a good quality leather items with day to day functions I decided to make my own. I have always had a passion for leather items but also like the slightly quirky but practical leather products. All the items we make on this site are hand made from vegetable tanned hides (a natural bi product from the food industry), most of these items can take many man hours to complete, cutting, dying and sewing (using a saddle stitch, stronger than a running stitch, burnished and finally polished. So if you are looking for something unique and not the same as on the high street this is the site for you.
