Hyde and Sheep

A trip to a leather trade shop started it all for founder, Ann. It took over ten years of developing leather craft skills to nurture her passion into a business. Ann first developed her traditional hand-crafting skills in the Welsh Valleys being taught by her father and passed those skills onto her daughter, Kat (pictured). They’ve combined their passions for leather and wool to create Hyde and Sheep. They sell their hand-crafted leather goods from a studio in the wild Welsh mountains at the Corris Craft Centre, Mid Wales.

Items include belts, dog collars, journals, earrings – even dragon heads!

The leather for each items is hand-picked, cut, stained, tooled and stitched to create these pieces. The wool gifts are made using wool from Welsh mountain sheep and hand-spun on a traditional spinning wheel.
