We are Sara and Melissa, Italian designers, makers of bags and accessories and founders of The London Leather Workshop and The Bag Making Suppliers. 

With 20 years of experience in the fashion and accessories industries in Italy and the UK, our combined skill set and expertise span different areas including design, product development, pattern making, sewing and leather crafts.


Since 2012, through The London Leather Workshop, our first joint business venture, we have assisted local and worldwide brands in developing their bag and accessory collections. We have supported aspiring designers and craftspeople by offering various courses in bag making, leather sewing and leather crafting techniques.

Recognising the challenge of finding trustworthy material suppliers for accessory makers, with our shop we want to create a one-stop destination where brands, designers and our students can find everything they need under one roof.

Our products are available online and in our London Shop.


We carefully select our suppliers based on their commitment to quality, sustainability and reliability, ensuring we provide our customers with the best materials and tools for their projects.

We take great care in assisting our customers in making informed material choices and selecting production processes that align with their values.

Our services support the growth of emerging businesses by providing guidance with a flexible and personal approach.


As experienced designers and bag makers, we offer professional advice to customers seeking materials for their projects.

Our selection of tools is based on our hands-on experience in leatherwork.

We conduct our business in the most sustainable way possible and are passionate about supporting the growth of conscious businesses that share our ethos.
