Katy Warriner


Founded in 2018, Warriner Leather was born out of a desire to make practical, long-lasting leather wares, highlighting a need to slow down and be more thoughtful of where our materials come from. My designs are timeless pieces, that reflect values of tradition and simplicity as well as being practical and durable to everyday living.

I work with my hands, using traditional tools and techniques. Every piece is entirely handmade, using local leather, waxed linen threads and brass hardware.

I make things to tell a story, to give my customers more than just a belt or a bag. I tell the story of leather, from its beginnings to its end. A circular story, from soil through to soil and all the processes in between.

It is my responsibility to help people reconnect with the things they buy, to repair rather than replace, to honour and keep alive traditional crafts.


Warriner Leather is an artisan leather workshop, designing and making leather wares that stand the test of time.
