Here’s a little peak of what you can expect…
Why did you start your business?

“We are talking to the wonderful Tatum @tatumdiamond.london who makes leather accessories ✨
Why do you make?
I developed a bit of a 👜 obsession in my 20’s, I’ve always loved making things, but it wasn't until I my hubby sent me on a bag making workshop that I found my passion for leather. It is a wonderfully tactile and flexible material, which can be turned into so many things. I’m thrilled to be able to combine my love for bags with my passion for the environment.
Where do you make?
I’ve converted a spare room of our South West London, into my studio. It’s mostly organised chaos with beautiful leathers and suedes waiting to be turned into gorgeous bags and accessories.
What is your typical day?
Wake up, check instagram and think about what I should post, though I don’t always get as far as actually posting anything. Breakfast, take Milo the 🐶 for a walk and then it’s down to business. I’ve been spending lots of time on the computer lately, working on brand awareness. When I’m not doing that, I’m in my studio, making bags and working on expanding my range.
