1. Hi and welcome to V.Kondratenko.studio

My interest in making (tailoring) bespoke garments began as a child when I watched my mum working in the tailoring business. I saw how she worked with the client, with her inherent neatness and attention to detail to create unique products.
In August 2008, when I became immersed in collecting vintage watches from the First and Second World War, I was faced with the need to customise straps for vintage watches. Vintage watches do not structurally allow for the fitting and convenient replacement of modern straps, and I had to find a solution. After visiting local leather ateliers but not satisfying my need, I spent years learning sewing and leatherworking techniques from recognised masters in the world.
In 2014, after acquiring my first tool and leather, I made many failed attempts and finally had a result that I was not ashamed to wear and show. Since then, I have been constantly working to improve my craftsmanship.
Over time I have learnt techniques for sewing and restoring leather goods, expanding my arsenal of skills and creativity.
My products are characterised by minimalism and functionality. I use only the finest materials and traditional hand sewing and embossing techniques. Your watch deserves a special strap and I am ready to help you with that. Please feel free to contact me with questions and requests.
Each piece is unique, created with loving attention to detail and carries character. You can view my work here. Remember that I can create something truly special for you – just let me know by writing me an email.
