Meet our Team - Dennis

"I was born in Taiwan, and have been working at Evans for nearly 5 years. I have had the opportunity to work with so many lovely and talented people. The work I do here requires a whole range of skillsets relating to leather work, we do shoe and bag repairing, alterations, refinishing colour and also work on leather jackets. I have a background in graphic design and my passion is leatherwork, all kinds of tooling, patternmaking and leather carving."
