Welcome to our
February Update
Hello, I hope you all had a good January and are looking forward to the (slightly) lighter nights as we move into February.


Just wanted to keep you all up to date with the on goings here at J.H. Leather. As you may have read in my previous post (see here) I am in the process on slowing down my production rate due to some health concerns. So far things are running as normal with a slightly longer lead time that some of you may be used to which is currently 3-4 weeks.


As we progress through the next few months some products will start to be removed from the store pages along with some leather and buckle options as stock is slowly run down.


I will be slowly moving over to the commission based ordering as stocks run down and will be steadily changing the website to account for this and my move into a more teaching based business. With more YouTube videos, pattern packs, DIY Kits as well as more dates available for 1-1 courses (once these can run again).


If you are interested in learning the art of leathercraft you can check out my free tutorials over on my YouTube channel or can have a look through our courses if you would prefer in person 1-1 training (as and when these will be possible to run)

Measuring Guide

Ordering a bespoke dog collar or belt? Please read the measuring guide to ensure you order the correct size.

Dog Collars

When measuring for your new dog collar, the best option is to measure the internal length of a current collar adjusted to how you like it fitted. To do this, remove the collar from your dog and do it up at the desired fitting, then with a flexible tape measure measure around the inside of the collar. This length will be where the middle hole will fit on your new collar.

How to measure your dog collar
You can also measure around your dogs neck. Place the tape measure around your dogs neck where the collar will sit and to a tightness that you like.

We will use the measurements provided as the internal measurement and add 2 larger and 2 smaller holes for adjustment. 


The best way is to measure your current belt from the inside of the buckle to the hole that is used most. You can also use a tape measure and measure around your waist where your belt will sit.

We will add 3 larger and 3 smaller holes for adjustment.

Hello and Welcome to J.H.Leather

Our 1:1 workshops are back for 2022! We are currently booking workshops from August - October and there are only a limited number of spaces available.

We are excited to announce the launch of our NEW acrylic templates. We have new designs ready now and are working to convert most of our range of PDF Patterns. You can also check out our YouTube channel for FREE tutorials.

In the workshop, we are working on about a 2-3 week turnaround on all handmade leather goods. We do have some ready to post items in our clearance items and our limited edition collections.
