Connell of Sheffield are specialists in short production runs of high quality handmade leather and suede products for a wide variety of market sectors, including the construction industry, the oil industry, engineering, woodworking, gardening and farming.

Our production team has over 40 years combined experience of designing products to meet a wide variety of customer needs. Working mainly in leather and suede, we are also experienced in manufacturing goods made from other materials such as ballistic nylon, canvas, webbing and PVC.

We are proud to support British industry by purchasing our leather and suede from British tanneries who are acknowledged experts in their field. They supply us with the highest quality raw materials which, in turn, enables us to manufacture goods which are durable, strong and reliable. Our products are made from a variety of leathers ranging from heavy industrial leather to light and flexible orthopaedic salt water resistant leather and are stitched in rot resistant nylon bonded thread for extra durability.

We are also very proud to be able to display the ‘Made in Sheffield’ mark. Sheffield is the only city in the UK whose name is protected due to its global reputation for quality and the selling power of its name. ‘Made in Sheffield’ is an internationally recognized symbol of the city’s industrial heritage and ongoing commitment to quality and excellence.

As well as our core range of products, we offer our customers a bespoke design and manufacturing service with the emphasis on small production runs of the highest quality. We work with our customers to produce samples and prototypes for approval and, depending on the complexity of the design, we are usually able to offer a quick turnaround once a firm order has been received.
