Awl by Hand is a small business run by Lyndsay Stanton producing bespoke leathergoods in Felton, Northumberland.

Lyndsay spent most of her working and social life in the equine industry, 25+ years, then following a back injury Lyndsay retrained in leatherwork at the Cumbria School of Saddlery with Master Saddler David May. 

Awl by Hand was set up in December 2009, with the aim of producing the best quality goods using traditional methods, every item produced is cut, bevelled, stitched and polished by hand without the use of machinery resulting in the workmanship we are proud of. We believe that the best items should be available to everyone and with this in mind we try to keep our prices down without compromising on the quality of the materials used, the majority of which have a royal warrant.

In case you are wondering what the awl is, it's the tool that's used to pierce the leather during hand stitching.

Most items are made to order personally for you, with this in mind we have made the decision not to have a check out system 
Ordering is still kept simple via email and electronic invoicing.
