Where simplicity meets traditional Japanese leathercraft techniques

Mollum Vellum (MV) is an independent leather products maker in the United Kingdom. All leather bags and purses are designed and handcrafted by Herin in London. 

Herin learned practical leather bag making skills from 'an industry sensei' in Seoul followed by her first step with the University of Arts London. She utilises Japanese leathercraft techniques to create leather products by hand cutting, hand stitching and hand painting. Her fundamental skills are originated from sample production and hence she focuses on pattern design and actual crafting process. 

Mollum Vellum was officially born in February 2016. Incorporating simplistic and yet elegant concepts using traditional techniques is one of the most fun factors in our work. In order to achieve satisfaction for our leather products, we only source reliable and quality materials from industry leaders in the UK and Italy.

Most collections can be customisable and available with various colour options, i.e., colours of threads and leather edges, to personalise. And every product delivered is unique per order as products are created for one at a time. Hope you like seeing our latest collections.

We have 'very limited' amount of final pieces for occasional direct sales. If you want to short-cut processing time, please just get in touch. We might be able to dispatch it much sooner.

If you have any question or any gift ideas please just contact us.  

Best wishes, Herin
