Hegri Handmade founder Kelly Espindola is inspired by her coastal surroundings based at the Courtyard Studios in Irvine Harbourside, North Ayrshire where she hand makes leather accessories, which include bags, belts, purses, wallets and variety of smaller leather items. Each product is carefully handcrafted with responsibly sourced leather that has the option to be hand dyed in the studio for unique colour varieties. Creating beautiful accessories which are made to last. All items can be personalised and come specially gift wrapped, whether it is bought as a gift or a treat for yourself.
Kelly was inspired by her mother Eileen who made many of her clothes when she was young. Following suit, Kelly started to make her own daughters clothes which prompted her to complete her Honours Degree in Fashion Design and Manufacture. Making her final collection of coats in leather. Falling in love with the medium, began a journey to learn about the traditional techniques of leather working.
