A lifelong passion for the patina and authenticity of time-worn things is at the heart of Jean-Marie's work in leather.

Naturally processed skins, carefully selected, are worked into simple utilitarian objects, where purity of line and perfect proportions are combined with beautiful hand stitching to create to create timeless and desirable accessories.

Found objects, especially old and used knives, but also buckles and other findings, feature in Jean-Marie's work too, where they are given new lives by the unique touch of this alchemist in leather.
