TribaMythica officially formed in 2013 and is the collective work of husband and wife team, Esther and Martin Winckles. Esther has been a professional artist for over a decade, with many more years before that creating art and crafts, as well as a background in Graphic Design. She has a portfolio of fantasy and wildlife art which is sold internationally and is available as prints and greetings cards. (Under her maiden name of Esther Remmington)
Their leather craft began as a hobby when Martin started making bags and costume pieces, which they then sold alongside Esther's artwork at fayres. Before long, the two began to merge.
Esther started carving and painting her artwork onto the leather bags and pieces that Martin made, along with creating leaf and feather jewellery as a way to use up the off-cuts.
This eventually grew into a full time business, and the rest is history as they say!
"Inspired by our love of nature, Celtic, medieval, pagan, shamanic, tribal, faerie and all things mythical, we bring to you a collection of beautifully hand crafted leather bags, jewellery, costume pieces and accessories.
We are blessed to be living just outside of the magical town of Glastonbury, in beautiful Somerset, UK, where there is inspiration in abundance from the stunning landscapes, as well as a wonderful creative community.
All of our work is hand made in our home studio, nestled at the bottom of our garden on the edge of Avalon.
We currently balance our time between custom work, selling online and exhibiting at a select few events in the UK. Please visit our Events page for an up to date list of appearances, we really love meeting you all and hope to see you at an event soon!"
