About Fatbob Crafts
From my workshop in Godmanchester I make handcrafted and handtooled leather goods and accessories ranging from wallets and belts to motorcycle luggage and saddles generally made using veg tanned leather with bespoke handtooled designs and solid brass fittings, as such each piece created is unique to the customers own requirements. Every part of my process is hand done right from the design and cutting of the leather, then hand tooling the piece, dying and painting and then finally hand saddle stitching, finishing the piece with the hardware and treating the leather to protect it.
Tooling leather everything from motorcycle panniers, motorcycle saddles and bags to wallets and bags.
