Welcome to Wild Foot Leather – a small, independent leather workshop set in the heart of Devon.

Creative designs are brought to life using traditional materials, tools and techniques. Each item is crafted to last a lifetime in the most wild of places!

I’m Matthew, the designer and crafter behind Wild Foot Leather. Initially just some wild ideas, ‘Wild Foot’ is about stepping out in a new direction and transforming those ideas into reality. Whilst working as a chef, I began experimenting with leather craft in my spare time, and after a few years, I realised I had found my calling.

Nature has always played an important part in my life and I’ve been fortunate enough to grow up alongside people who share my love of the outdoors. My main sources of inspiration come from the beautiful Devonshire landscapes that surround me, from wild open moors, to deep valleys and dense forests.

Leather has a fascinating way of telling a story and each item that is crafted is at the start of this journey.

Thank you for your interest in Wild Foot Leather – why not join the adventure?

Stay wild!
