Leather Lovers
Releasing the Soul

There’s something instinctual about leather; its touch, its smell, its connection with nature. Chazz Micheal Micheals (Will Ferrell) sums it up in Blades of Glory; “Before a competition I like to work with leather. The Native Americans always say that working with hides and pelts releases the soul.”

Leather Lovers
Releasing the Soul

There’s something instinctual about leather; its touch, its smell, its connection with nature. Chazz Micheal Micheals (Will Ferrell) sums it up in Blades of Glory; “Before a competition I like to work with leather. The Native Americans always say that working with hides and pelts releases the soul.” Leather is durable yet supple – after all it used to be skin - and since no one is throwing red paint on hide-hounds like Madonna and Meat Loaf just yet, it might be time to get yourself kitted out by some of the city’s top rawhide artisans.

Despite a name that sounds like you’re playing with portobellos, the Fungus Workshop is a creative centre run by leather-loving lads and featuring a wide collection of hand-made leather goods, including satchels, coin purses and notebooks, as well as wallets, camera cases and photo frames. The Fungus team’s latest innovation is transforming vintage leather jackets into designer handbags, and for those that want to release their own souls, there is a range of leather-work classes which cover the basics - you can make your own organiser cover or even a diaper bag for Faith Hill.

“Keep them doggies movin', Rawhide!”
