Leathercraft handmade by Fiona Ritchie
All of the leatherwork featured in WorkStyle Leather and JG Accessories is designed and made by Fiona Ritchie, here in New Zealand.
Only genuine leather
There are many types and qualities of leather. While some imported leather items have as little as 10% leather content and can still advertise themselves as "genuine leather", Fiona only selects and uses genuine leather from New Zealand and Australian suppliers. Most of these finished leathers are available in only limited quantities and thus are most like exclusive to Just Gorgeous customers. For pieces that are made from "raw," full grain leather, Fiona hand dyes each piece so that the finish on each piece is unique according to the characteristics of the hide and the dying process.
Custom made to order
Fiona makes each piece custom made to order, so there are limited quantities. Most pieces are hand stitched with top quality, Irish Linen Waxed thread and pieces can be personalised with nameplates and hand stamped initials.

Embossed initials on men's leather
Fiona makes bespoke leather pieces for ladies and men. It was inappropriate tp put men's leather on a site called "Just Gorgeous". So, Fiona devised the Sparrowhawk brand for men, and developed a new site, Sparrowhawk Leather (named after our New Zealand Falcon). Some ladies have been ordering Sparrowhawk designs for themselves, particularly if they like handdyed leather. So do visit www.sparrowhawkleather.co.nz.
Special custom leather orders welcome
Fiona welcomes your suggestions for other custom made designs, for ladies or men.
