Williams Handmade

Category: Textile
Location: Bircher, Leominster, Herefordshire
Description: Williams Handmade was founded in 2010 by award winning designer Sarah Williams. The ethos behind Williams Handmade is to produce truly unique,
 sculptural, timeless pieces while raising the appreciation of hand
craftsmanship. 
Each piece is handmade by the founder Sarah Williams in her workshop, which is in a converted school in Bircher, Leominster,
 located next to National Trust property Croft Castle. The making process is extremely labour intensive with 
each piece of leather being cut by hand and constructed individually using 
traditional techniques, while maintaining the highest level of quality. 
All of the products are made from the highest quality, English Bridle
leather, sourced from Northamptonshire, where it is finished by hand, by
 an experienced craftsmen. All of our fittings are cast in one of the last
 remaining foundries in the UK. British materials can be more expensive but 
Sarah strongly believes that they reinforce her dedication to quality and
 truly British designs. 
The unusual sculptural shapes and forms featured in Williams Handmade
 designs are a deliberate attempt to draw attention and encourage the
 viewer to take a closer look and therefore gain appreciation for hand
 craftsmanship. Williams Handmade has gained numerous accolades including Accessories Collection of 
the Year Award at ITS#NINE, The Accessory Award from Absolut Vodka, “Power 
of Craft” exhibition at the V&A. 2013 saw Williams Handmade 
being shortlisted for the Ketel One Modern Craftsman Award as well as 
being selected by Selfridges as one of their Bright Young Things.
