Management Sciences student Charlie Baron, with Industrial Design and Technology student Forrest Skerman-Stevenson, has produced the first-ever customisable leather wallet as part of fashion brand Isolana London.

Launched through Kickstarter, a platform used to gain funding for creative projects, Charlie and Forest are hoping to raise £10,000 to expand their workshop to enable batch production. 

Handmade using the locally sourced Italian leather, the wallets are unique in that they can be personalised using photos and embossed initials uploaded by the buyer. 

Forrest and Charlie started their Kickstarter campaign on May 1st and have already achieved nearly 50 per cent of their £10k goal. Supporters can pledge as little as £1 and discounts are being offered to those that back the project.
