The Slowhand

Alex Agertoft

Meet the Maker

After years of making presents and commissions for family and friends, I founded Slowhand in 2023. My passion lies in creating beautiful handmade leather goods that stand the test of time.



I’ve had a belt and a camera strap from Slowhand. Delighted with the quality both of the products and the customer service. Alex took the time to listen to exactly what I wanted, took lots of measurements and made me two pieces that have lasted years (and will last many more).

I have a long wallet from Slowhand and the craftsmanship is impeccable. The look and feel are luxurious, and you know you're getting a top-quality product. Who doesn't love the smell of new leather?

I recently purchased a leather shoulder bag from Slowhand. Alex was a pleasure to deal with and very responsive. The bag is beautifully stitched with really nice quality leather. The recipient, who received it for a birthday day present, was very happy with it. Slowhand does quality work.

Alex made a beautiful collar for my dog Bjorn - light leather with a timeless brass buckle. Bjorn has worn it every day since, and it still looks brilliant. Alex was professional, friendly and very responsive during our correspondence about the size and design. I will definitely be returning to shop again. Can’t recommend highly enough.

Amazing quality, great detail and fantastic service. One of the best belts I've ever had. Would massively recommend to anyone.
