About


leathercraft

Inspired by traditional Japanese minimalism, Mollum Vellum makes minimalist leather products in London, the United Kingdom. We handcraft leather goods using traditional leathercraft techniques. 

We start from creating patterns for our products. We, then, hand cut and hand stitch leathers and finalise products by hand painting leather edges (where necessary). As you may have noticed, colour pallets for threads and edge paints are available on every product listing page. 

Most of our collections are limited editions as we do not mass-produce. Sometimes you may also find one-off items, i.e., you are the only owner in the world!  

We proudly source our leathers from well-established and leading UK and Italian tanneries and leather distributors. Our occasional trips to leather sellers are another fun part of our handcrafting process.    

Most products are customisable. If you like any leather or product, please just contact us using the Contact form so that we can discuss and make your special collection. 

All our products are made-to-order based on your custom selection and we do not keep stocks - We sometimes prepare small amount of stocks for 'direct sales event', e.g., craft fairs or exhibitions. Please note that we will usually need 1-2 weeks to make your product before dispatch.

Best wishes, Herin
