About

Ren Cuming has been making limited edition, fairytale inspired shoes, boots, bags & textiles for over twenty years. Day's spent in her woodland studio on the edge of Dartmoor are happily filled with leather, yarn, birdsong and endless tea. I am very much a seasonal maker so inspiration from the Woods surrounding my home constantly finds it's way into my work.

I switch between making footwear & leathergoods for extended periods of time so cannot forecast products in advance, but expect varying sizes / styles / colours on release. New Stock is added randomly as I complete it with listing updates via instagram.

I grew up with ditsy print maxi dresses, flared trousers, folk revival and a world where everything was brown, orange & purple, it was the 70's. Instagram reminds me so much of my Mums trusty polaroid that it's like childhood all over again. Follow for studio shots, customer shares, stock updates & snippets from home.
