George Cleverley Footwear and Leather Goods

    The British bespoke shoemaker is known for its custom, handmade shoes, and has more recently expanded with an array of unique leather goods. Its newest introduction was a limited-edition collection of men’s accessories fashioned from reindeer skins found amongst the ruins of a nearly 200-year-old shipwreck. These miraculously preserved skins are the last known examples of leather made using an old-world tanning process that took up to 18-months to make. In 2010, George Cleverley used the skins to create leather bags, belts and wallets, including the Holmes wine carrier, Watson shoe kit, and the Gladstone hunting kit bag, which is a modern interpretation of a satchel once used by British hunters. All of the bags are lined with green goatskin and can include, upon request, a personalized gold monogram.
