My family’s love affair with fine leather goes back over 130 years. By 1884, my great grandfather Gustavus had established a reputation as a master craftsman, making and restoring fine shoes in the small Belgium town of Oostvleteren.
My grandfather, Camille, having come to this country in the early part of the last century, was to follow firmly in his father’s footsteps, hand crafting leather belts and handbags in Chesham, Buckinghamshire.
It was from Camille that my father David in turn learnt his trade, going on to own a saddlers and leather goods business in the same town.
