Elytra England products are handcrafted from carefully selected Italian vegetable tanned leather and suede, by Justine Weyman, who works from her studio in Frome, Somerset, where she lives with her family.
Justine started off her career as a scientist having studied this to degree level. This involved studying entomology, and it was during this time that she rekindled her creative side by making bags and purses for herself and friends. Over the following years, she started working with leather and suede and founded Elytra England. Elytra is the scientific name for the outer wing cases of beetles and fitted well with the leather iPad cases she was making.
Always interested in the natural world, Justine uses a lot of natural colours of leather and likes to contrast these with vibrant suedes, drawing inspiration from the colours found in nature.
Each product is designed and made by Justine, who carefully selects each piece of leather and suede and choses colour combinations to produce eye catching products with a contemporary twist.
All products are sent out by first class post (signed for service) within 5 days from placing your order.
