Martin Pryce Leather Artisan

Martin Pryce Leather Bags featured in Elle Magazine

We were delighted to be featured in the April issue of Elle Magazine. Myself and Mary Pryce (the kids!) were selected to be featured in the Brighton street style section of both the magazine and online respectively. We had a brilliant day of pampering, make up and despite Mary having her foot in plaster and a clod hopper (an NHS special foot cover thing) our pictures were used.

The theme of the April edition was 'Spring Leather' so a great opportunity to check out the latest trends, have a rummage through a clothes rack the Elle supplied and pick a fabulous look for out time in front of the camera. Mary wore a stunning blue shift dress from Whistles, really struggled to hand it back. Soft leather and loose simple fit but the leather hung beautifuly, she wore this with the Martin Pryce Gold Metalic Momo bag which really lifted the outfit. I wore a Rag & Bone Trench coat supplied by Elle for the shoot with the Purple Metallic Momo bag. Again a really strong look for spring with a lush combination of textures and colours. Unfortunately the bags are 'just seen' in the images - it was a super windy day but the feedback from the Elle team about the bags was fantastic. 

Thanks for a great day, Catherine  x

Welcome to the shop...

It's been exciting times since opening the shop in Ludlow (where I live and work) and I've been blown away by the response of people popping in to say hello and look at the products. Finally thought it was time, and after much harrasment from my daughters Catherine and Mary, to create the right space online to show you what I get up to. 

All of the products, bags, straps etc are handmade, solely by me and they are just for you. They can be created in any colour or size (with in reason)  so together we can create a unique bag tailored to your tastes.  Leather has been my business for many years and I love creating pieces of work that are timesless, durable and a real statment for those who wear them. 

Watch this space for new collections, news on the shop and what I've been up to such as adventures collecting leather samples in London and where my inspiration comes. We will keep updating the photography and add some style sections soon.

I want to say a special thank you to my daughters Catherine and Mary for help with the site and social media and to Matthew Halls who created the branding, logo and signs for the shop. They all look great. Cheers kids, Martin x
