The Awling design approach blends traditional English leather goods materials and techniques with simple functionality and a modern aesthetic
Our designer has 25 years’ creative experience in the leather goods industry, this is apparent in our understated yet confident design style. During the creative process details are pared back and distilled to their essence. This simplification creates a strong aesthetic and also highlights the quality of our materials.
Our work practices and materials are essentially the same as those employed by leather craftspeople for centuries. Vegetable tanned saddle leather is paired with solid brass or pewter buckles and cut, stitched and finished by hand. These materials are inherently beautiful, in appearance and to touch, and only improve with age and use.
We balance our reverence for tradition with modern design cues. Powder coated colour, clean edge finishing, considered proportion and minimal detailing subtly harmonise with traditional elements. Awling belts represent a uniquely contemporary take on Britain’s leather making heritage.
