Vegetable tanned leather (using surplus material)
'The name ‘Couper et Coudre’ comes from the French verbs meaning ‘to cut & to sew’. Handmade in Bristol; I use organic fabrics and vegetable tanned leather in my designs. I like using natural, chemical free materials, as they are better for everyone involved: the farmers, dyers, makers and wearers/users. Being natural and chemical free it means they are biodegrade; so after their use and with time they will eventually return to the earth'.
