I fell in love with leatherwork while I had my bookbinding company, Two Women Boxing, 20 years ago. In creating the set design for our 2017 look book we included some of my hand bound books for props. While gathering inspiration for the leather cuffs I went back and looked specifically at Coptic books because of the sewn construction techniques and handcrafted details. I’m intrigued about the possibilities of marrying the same sensibility with my leather and bronze cuffs .
