Eddie Handmade is a premium label reflecting a sense of relaxed and timeless elegance, focusing on practicality and streamlined designs. All of the pieces are made with natural cowhide and Calfskin leather, used for its particularly smooth, supple, yet durable qualities.
Pieced together in the Florence workshop the leather is also sourced from the finest tanneries in Italy, a number of which also provide their material to world leading fashion houses.
Co-founders Emily and Nima both design and curate the brand. With Nima coming from a family background of 70 years in garments, Eddie Handmade was initially launched in 2013 after years of hand crafting items for personal use. Following 9 years of Fashion and Publishing experience, Emily’s background extends from Art directing high-end photo shoots to designing leading fashion industry magazines such as Harpers Bazaar, Cosmopolitan and Grazia.
The brand has been named after the cofounders cherished dog Eddie (who is also the labels motif): a cool, mischievous, kind and curious Jack Russell who is a true gentleman. The designs and pieces created all aim to have the character and personality of Eddie, even if it is just an ounce of his desirable attitude.
The Eddie Handmade leather studio in England provides a base to design unique and premium leather accessories. Inspired by the lifestyle of the city dweller, combining quality, durable handpicked leather and streamlined designs, we create pieces that will live and age with a fast paced city lifestyle.
In addition to the ready-to-buy collection, those looking for the ultimate in personalisation can opt for bespoke. Minor customization (adding or removing pockets, straps, handles and allowing the customer to pick a leather and hardware of their choice) is available. We can also advise on the options of using exotic leather for the tailored pieces, and an engraving service of initials can be achieved to exclusively personalise accessories.
