You might be wondering who the cat is all over the branding for Whitstable Craft Co? This is Jasper.

Jasper was my cat that I had from a kitten, but sadly passed away in October 2020. He used to lay on the workbench as I was doing my leathercraft, either watching me intensely, or just sleeping. He was the ideal workshop buddy.

When he passed away I wanted his memory to live on in something meaningful. He was the heart of my life and thus Whitstable Craft Co, so I’ve made him front and centre of the brand. You’ll see him on all the leather wallets and all throughout the promotional materials.

He might not be with us in person anymore, but he lives on through this brand. I hope Jasper can shine a light on the lives of everyone else who buys a wallet, like he did with mine.
