The birth of a business
Jon, from Leather Pens of Somerset, is a well known and respected field archer who had a passion for wood turning and other projects.
He was trying to satisfy his creative drive by transferring his wood turning skills into leather turning skills, so The Belt Makers gave him some of their leather trimmings.
Being a field archer, he began making stacked leather handles for arrow rakes. After a while, and as his techniques developed, he started work on smaller and more detailed pieces. This is when he took up a challenge to make a leather pen for a friend, and others soon began to ask for them too. Jon has never looked back.
Refine and develop finishes
Taking the opportunity to refine and develop finishes that complimented the beautiful material that is First Grade English Bridle Leather, it was not long before TBM & Friends commissioned Jon to make leather pens to sell in their shop.
Beautiful and unique pens
The positive reception and demand for these beautiful and unique pens inspired Jon to make pens for his own retail purposes and so Leather Pens of Somerset was born.
