Fusing a love of leather and a passion to reduce waste, Rosanna Gethin created Rosanna Clare; a sustainable range of beautiful, luxury leather goods including expertly crafted bags and accessories.
Much of the leather she uses has been discarded from the furniture industry, or is ‘upcycled’ from unwanted items like leather jackets, whilst new leather is sustainably sourced from Italy, Spain or Belgium.
All of Rosanna Clare’s leather bags, jewellery, homeware and gifts are hand-made in her studio in Smithbrook Kilns, Cranleigh, using traditional artisan skills and years of technical knoweledge.
Rosanna also enjoys passing on her leather crafting knowledge to others via fun and hands-on workshops for individuals, groups (up to six) or corporate events and has hosted clients, Soho House and Spotify.
Rosanna’s popular leather craft book, Sew Luxe Leather contains step-by-step instructions on 20 projects, including detailed information on leather working tools and suppliers. A must read for any budding leather worker.
Rosanna’s inventiveness with waste has led to her taking part in the BBC programme Money for Nothing where products destined for the tip are transformed by artisans like her. Keep an eye out for series 9 this Autumn to see what she transforms.
From handbags to pet accessories, trinket trays to purses, Rosanna Clare's designs give a nod to geometric shapes and patterns with the option to personalise products with bespoke embossing- making them the ideal, luxury gift.
