About Genevieve Bennett
Genevieve Bennett is a visual designer based in London. Her leatherwork is rooted in the tradition of the decorative arts and yet has a bold, contemporary aesthetic of intelligent and creative beauty. Focusing on cutting edge techniques, she believes
in creating products, which are precious, distinctive, and will last. After gaining a Masters in Printed and Embroidered Textiles at the Royal College of Art, Genevieve worked as a consultant for eight years, designing extensive and unique collections of home accessories for brands such as Habitat and Wedgwood, with many designs becoming best sellers. In 2008, she established her own bespoke leather studio.
Genevieve derives inspiration from three-dimensional sculptural qualities, surface relief, and striking pattern. Designs are initially hand sketched and drawn on
a vast range of archival material and influences range from historic silks to 17th Century woodcarvings. She is committed to the pursuit of exploring and cross pollenating intriguing pattern, luxury materials, and innovative techniques to create exquisite, covetable, and lasting pieces. In a charming Victorian industrial space in Bethnal Green, she has created a place where a dizzying and diverse array of influences converge.
