A change of career meant that Mia decided to study saddlery at the only 2 year full-time course in the UK. She achieved the Cordwainers’ Diploma in Saddlery at Capel Manor and is a fully qualified saddler. Now concentrating on bespoke leather design, she uses English bridle leather and hand-prepares, hand-stitches and hand-finishes her leather products, applying the high standards required of saddlery.
Rooted in traditional craftsmanship and based in the Highlands of Scotland, SABEL Bespoke Watch Straps allows her to offer customers the experience of creating a bespoke leather watch strap or fob watch holder. Each creation is individually conceived and hand-crafted to complement a client’s treasured timepiece. Her unique fitting service ensures that a customer’s strap, like a bespoke suit, is fitted to them perfectly.She also has a love for restoring old luggage, furniture and unloved leather items, bringing them back to life to be cherished for decades more. Whether off-the-shelf, personalised, customised or bespoke, and enhanced by her brand, design and marketing experience, she is passionate about creating works of excellence that will last a lifetime.
