Welcome to Lamia Leather

We provide high-quality leather costume, armour and accessories to TV, film, theatre and live roleplay (LRP), with over thirty years’ experience in leather craft. With the exception of our replica historical pieces, nearly all of our designs are original. We work to each customer’s requirements to make tailored garments, with room for adjustment wherever possible. Lamia Leather creations have been shown in Doctor Who, Gladiator, and Maid Marion & Her Merry Men, not to mention LRP fields for the past twenty-odd years. Some Lamia Leather creations have even been digitised for a Microsoft game.

We have been based in Gloucestershire since 1986, but have recently relocated to the workshop of Skian Mhor in Muirkirk, Scotland, where we will create bespoke leather scabbards and accessories to complement the weapons that they make, alongside our current offerings. We have already been selling our work on the Skian Mhor stall at LRP events for some time, as well as enjoying the gluten-free options at Mhorish.

Lamia Leather is owned by sole trader Steve Kingston, who started out doing leather work for Mythlore in 1986 and – apart from a few years in the army – has been making beautiful things out of hide ever since. Steve started Lamia in 1997 with his former business partner Ian Davis, who has since retired.
