Hi! I'm Eli, a designer-maker and the founder of Love and Salvage, a brand that transforms waste leather into beautiful handmade accessories. Our mission is to use what we have to create fun and functional accessories, keeping potential waste out of the landfill and in circulation for as long as possible.

I run workshops for anyone that is interested in creating their own designs, no matter the skill level - complete beginners are welcome! Classes are kept small, with lots of guidance and one-to-one support. You'll learn all about patterns, work with different materials and get to grips with a variety of tools. The workshops are a friendly ethical way to get into leather crafting. So please get in touch if you would like to do a workshop or have a project idea in mind.
