Wolfram Lohr: Master Leather Worker
Accessories for men and women who stands out from the crowd.
Wolfram Löhr is a master leatherworker: a true craftsman in the traditional sense. His high-end leather goods in premium vegetable tanned leathers, draw inspiration from classic and vintage designs, which he combines with an exciting contemporary twist.
Wolfram designs and makes quality items that are a pleasure to use and beautiful to behold. Ranges include handbags, belts, wallets, laptop and hunting bags that stand the test of time, and mature with age. An imaginative combination of different coloured leathers is a particular area of expertise.
Alongside custom made items, Wolfram creates bespoke accessories to suit specific requirements, working with individual customers to find the best solutions for their ideas. Sizing can be altered on certain designs; and accessories can be personalised with embossed names or initials.
Wolfram and designer Sarah Gardner run a highly successful, established family business from their spacious workshop in Hove, East Sussex. They sell internationally: in London, Paris, New York, Florida, and in outlets in Canada and Australia.
Most of Wolfram’s ranges, and leather care products, may be purchased through the Wolfram Löhr online boutique: www.wolframlohr.com. The workshop is open by appointment.
