We've just had a new shipment of our leather upholstery offcuts arrive in store and we've been inspired! It's amazing what you can do with all those bits and pieces of all shapes and sizes. We think it's a great way to recycle top quality leathers in new and exciting ways.
So here are some DIY projects using scrap leather from around the web to get you inspired too.

So there you have it. We hope you've been inspired get creating! Now all that's left
to do is to grab some of our leather upholstery offcuts before they're all gone.
PS. Can we just talk about how gorgeous those necklaces from project ideas 1. and 2. are for a second?
