Art of Creation: Eliza from Thomas Lyte

Thomas Lyte Eliza

Next up for #ArtofCreation is one of London’s top leathersmiths, Thomas Lyte. Of the many handcrafted pieces Thomas Lyte produces, including purses, wallets, cufflinks and silverware, the Eliza handbag is the most beloved. In this short video, see how the master craftswoman takes a plain sheet of fine leather and moulds it in to this smart and stylish handbag:

The Eliza Collection, named after Pride and Prejudice’s heroine Elizabeth Bennet, represents the quintessentially English nature of Thomas Lyte’s design and craftsmanship. The bag itself is made from fine grain and bridle leather, with a soft suede interior, and is available in black, mustard, cognac (pictured), and petrol colours. It’s a staple piece of the Thomas Lyte range which promises to be around for many years to come.
