Rob McRae is the artisan behind Leatherworks who began his work in the early 1980s on a vintage Singer machine. After honing his craft with Master Craftsmen locally and around the world and with the Jam Factory, Rob has been awarded a space in Regent Arcade to use as a workshop and retail outlet.
Exposure to mass production markets and fast fashion has influenced Rob’s direction as a designer-maker, which is to slow down and produce good work that people enjoy using and want to keep for a long time. Rob’s family are important partners in the Leatherworks business as key advisors, sales and public relations managers, logistics experts, market researchers, product testers and most of all, Rob’s inspiration.
