Mark Angelo-Gizzi

2013 QEST Leathersellers' Company Scholar - Leatherwork

Based in Knebworth, Hertfordshire, Mark produces handmade leather satchels and bags from the very best materials. Following the traditions of craft leatherwork, every aspect of each bag, from the cutting and stitching to the finishing, is done completely by hand.

A QEST Leathersellers’ Company Scholarship in 2013 enabled Mark to attend courses run by three of the best leather craft tutors in the country. This experience gave him the skills and confidence to give up his job in an advertising agency in London in order to set up Gizzi Leather and concentrate solely on leatherwork.
