Funny how life comes full circle sometimes, my first job, at the age of 4 was ‘floor-sweeping apprentice’ in Grandfather Moore’s shoe repair and leather goods emporium.
The smells and experience must have affected me more than I thought, as now 52 years later and near 45 years since they closed, I am finally ready to be let loose and restart the family business.
Hi, I’m Gary, and I make stuff out of leather, and PETA approved Vegan Cork.
Well that’s up to you, “whatever we can conceive together, we can achieve together”
Plus lots of everyday accessories handcrafted with traditional tools, techniques, and great pride.
Making items individually by hand allows for a far higher level of personalization and refinement that simply cannot be replicated by mass production or machines.
Living by Lord Chesterfields' advice to his son, repeated many many times to me by my father, " Whatever is worth doing, is worth doing well".
All Wagtail products are designed and handcrafted to last a lifetime.
Just like your skin tells your story: who you are, where you come from, what you have done, how you have lived.
Your Wagtail Cork items will come along with you for a very long time and tell their story.
-Gary, the owner and creative force of Wagtail Design
