Tom Carroll is widely known as a traditional hand bookbinder specialising in book restoration. Entering Tom’s workshop is like taking a step back in time. Immediately you are surrounded by tools and equipment from past centuries. Tom has an evident design fluency and is passionate about his craft. He is proud to point out that the only two tools that need electricity in his studio are a hot plate for gilding and his stereo.
Everything Tom creates is custom crafted by hand to the highest quality and ever evolving design is his main focus. His keen interest, attention to detail and artistic flair are evident in his work and can be clearly seen in his latest innovation of bespoke handcrafted iPhone and iPad Cases.
From his Book Bindery in Waterford, Ireland’s oldest City, Tom uses age old traditional techniques to create unique state of the art solutions for the stylish and safe storage of your iPhones and iPads.
