Hello, I'm Louise James. I'm the sole bookbinder at The Binding Studio in the Waitakere Ranges- Auckland.

My Felt shop is where I list handmade products I have made for fun, overs from making larger runs, samples I have made for research, or books and boxes that just needed to be created and are now looking for a forever home! The exception being my Instax Albums which I make to order just for you.

This means these products are listed and priced out of love. The cost covers materials and sometimes a very small fraction of labour- sometimes it covers neither of these things!

My main business is custom making products by hand, using a combination of traditional and contemporary bookbinding techniques, my antique equipment and the highest quality materials. I make books, albums, boxes, folders, portfolios, and many other presentation products.

Thanks for stopping by my Felt page and supporting NZ hand crafts!
