BaileysBespoke - Big Impact on People, Small Impact on the Environment

Updated: May 8

The Idea for BaileysBespoke started over a few pints, and the vision was to oversee the crafting of every item that departs their workshop; from the very first stitch to the packing and dispatch.


The Story Behind BaileysBespoke


BaileysBespoke was started by Tristan and Peter back in 2019 with the vision of doing everything in-house from the first to the final stitch.

It started as a hobby for Peter, making hats was a nice way to unplug and relax. Tristan joined and tried his hand at the supply chain.


"I ordered about 75 square feet of leather, and when it arrived I realized I had over-ordered by a massive amount."

When life gives you lemons you make lemonade, when you order 75 square feet of leather you make EDC Leather Keyring Clips.


Starting with smaller products like key rings, the next 14 months were spent planning, practicing, and perfecting the leather game. What started out as a hobby for both founders, eventually turned into "high-quality goods for the modest adventurer."


Which Causes Are They Supporting?


Both founders are from South England and grew up with an appreciation for the environment. The love of nature has been an integral part of the company's ethos. All packaging comes from previously recycled material that can be recycled again by their customers.


Beyond their sustainable practices in the shop, they support causes directly through sales on their online shop including:
