Whitehouse Cox: Leather Goods Made in England

Whitehouse Cox was established in 1875 and hand make leather goods in Walsall, England. They pride themselves on the quality not only of their workmanship, but also of the (largely British) leathers they use. All are natural vegetable tanned leathers and their other components are sourced where possible in the UK.

As with so many other British businesses I talk to, they are better known in Japan, where consumers appreciate the heritage, quality and skills that go into making such products. It seems a shame to buy foreign-made leather goods with designer labels when you can support the home team with well-made products like these. They sent me some products to look at. All are beautifully made, robust and will improve with age, as only the best leathers can. For more information, see Whitehouse Cox.

They are beautiful, but very expensive. I think £67 for a simple leather key-fob is a bit steep!
