contemporary - country - quirky  

 Hi, my name is Debra and my studio is in Rockhampton, Central Queensland - the beef capital of Australia where I live with my wonderful husband Mac.  Mac and I have lived in this region  for over 30 years and have raised two beautiful girls - Mall and Prue.  We owned our own cattle property, and four generations of our family were, and still are, on the land in this area. 

We hand pick the leathers and hides from reputable Australian businesses as we like to select leather that actually looks, feels and smells like genuine leather should.  As you are purchasing a handcrafted, generally one off piece we want to give you a quality item that will last. Each piece is hand-cut and stitched on an industrial machine using UV stabilised heavy duty thread which is designed for stitching leather. We are a small family business and take great care with each and every piece that we make.  Silkwood Designs only sell Australian made, quality handcrafted products, we don't import any of our products - our products come from passion not from China.

 If you're looking for something refreshingly different, we have unique, generally one off  designs from contemporary to quirky, and always distinctive.

Exotic and exquisite leathers on availability, for example can include crocodile and sting ray.
