DIY Leather Pouch / Clutch Kit

Are you a keen crafter, or ready to take up a new hobby? We’ve got you covered. Our DIY bag making kits have been created for you to make from the comfort of your home - no specialist tools or experience required.


Made for you 

If you don't fancy making this kit yourself, we'll make it for you! Just choose 'made for you' after selecting your colour and hardware type (there's a small extra charge for this).

Craft it Yourself! 

No specialist tools or prior experience required. 

The Process

This DIY Zip Pouch Kit is ideal for ALL - from total beginners to confident makers - you CAN make your own luxury leather pouch at home.

This is a perfect introductory DIY bag making kit to start your journey into leather work and bag making and arrives complete with everything you need to get started.

Have fun learning the basics of leather craft (for accessories), with introduction to techniques including: application of wax and edge finishing, inserting a zip, hand stitching on leather, and pouch construction. Simply follow the included step-by-step instructions to craft your own leather pouch / clutch. And, most importantly, enjoy the process. 

Inside your kit, you will find pre-cut leather pieces which require you to finish with a wax (included). You will finish the leather with a wax included in the pack and sew the leather to the zip to complete the pouch. 

If you have a small flat head screwdriver, this will be helpful, although it is not essential.

To make the kit suitable for home construction, some work has been done for you. Don’t worry though, there is still plenty left for you to turn your creative energy to. 

The Pouch

The zip pouch / clutch has a zip top closure. It is a raw edge construction to give a classic look and completed in a buttery soft vegetable-tanned leather which results in a supple but structured piece. 

The pouch is unlined meaning you can enjoy the natural grain and quality of the beautiful Tuscan leather. 

The size provides ample space for all your on-the-go essentials.

The dimensions of the zip pouch are H 160mm x W 240mm x D 7mm, and it will be the same construction as the pouch in the product photos.

There are NO ADDITIONAL COSTS. All tools, leather, hardware and products will be included in the kit. There is a selection of leather and hardware colours for you to choose from, and if you require a bespoke colour please get in touch as we may be able to help.

Material, Care & Repair


Here at Hands of Tym, we are passionate about sourcing the highest quality sustainable materials. 

We use responsibly-sourced Italian vegetable-tanned leather. Find out morehere.Using only the highest quality cuts, the leather will improve with use and age, developing a soft patina over time. Natural variations are a product feature of this material and contribute to the individual style of the product. The leather is free from harmful chemicals and biodegradable at the end of its life. 

Please note, leather is a natural product and the coulour and texture can vary from the product shown in the images. Please get in touch if you would like colour swatches.


Please note: There may be natural changes in the colour of the materials and they may stain easily. Please be careful with oils and inks. 

When not in use, store your product in a soft cloth bag in a cool and dry place.
