Hi, I'm Kat from Tula and the Whale and I love gold leaf, festivals, animals, coffee and gin! I create sustainable, colourful and lightweight jewellery from repurposed leather and cork leather.
Crafting is my therapy. Tula and the Whale began after years of creating gifts for my friends and family, and just for the sheer joy! I absolutely love designing bright and colourful accessories with upcycled materials.
All of my jewellery is handmade. It is designed, cut, painted and finished by me, in my home workshop in South Devon.
I care a lot about the environment and do my best to make sure my business is as sustainable as possible. I only use leather that has been collected as scrap material from the shoe and fashion industry and my packaging is plastic free, reusable and mostly made from recycled materials. My workshop is powered by green energy and I use a non toxic leather bond glue. My vegan range uses sustainably grown cork leather from Portugal.
I love doing bespoke orders so if there are any colours you would like specifically, please get in contact. Thank you so much.
