London-based studio of artisan and bespoke leather goods ten°cloudy (Ten Cloudy) is a creation of a designer and maker Natasha Kerimova. She makes all Ten Cloudy bags, accessories and leather artworks at her studio in Kingston upon Thames (Greater London). The signature style is to use a combination of mixed leathers and textures. Ten Cloudy products combine the modernity of design with the heritage of traditional leather handcraft.
Leathercraft is not Natasha’s first profession. Many factors fed into it: childhood love for fashion, a university degree in engineering, years of work in branding and marketing agencies, unplanned relocation to London, MA in fashion business management from Westminster University, leather bag making courses at the London School of Fashion, extensive private tutoring (all while raising two children). Finally, in 2019 she launched her own leathercraft fashion brand ten°cloudy.
Recent awards/recognitions/scholarships: Abbey England award 2020 (won), QEST 2020 (finalist), London Creative Network (scholarship)
Natasha Kerimova is a passionate advocate of sustainability and slow fashion. To minimise production waste, she creates unique leather artworks, interior decorations and small accessories using leather offcuts from the primary Ten Cloudy collection. This project demonstrates that seemingly useless small leather pieces can be creatively transformed into powerful art objects. The resulting artworks represent the synergy of artistic inspiration, craftsmanship and environmental sustainability concerns.
