Introduction

Our small business produces unique handmade leather products, ranging from durable everyday goods, such as work and sports items, to creative fashion accessories. In addition to our own product lines we also provide a spectrum of services including restoration or repair and custom-made items. Our design is the result of an organic process, a dialogue between material, experience and handicraft. It also lets the material speak for itself, employing a timeless, classic style that will withstand changing trends and time. We are also happy to work with clients to help them realize their design visions.

Philosophie

Uniqueness, durability and respect are three core elements we aim to pursue. In sharp contrast to the mass market of cheap goods that fl ood our lives and are dedicated exclusively to profi t, my company places the emphasis on craftmanship, sustainability and individuality. Mass produced goods are manufactured under humiliating conditions for the working people, including child labor, usurping our natural resources and destroying the grown culture of handicraft. They also dictate anon-culture of uniform taste, thereby accelerating the rise of a throwaway society. Today the access to knowledge, machinery and materials has already become a real challenge.

Welcome

Welcome to our website! We are a community of people who have a passion for hand crafted leather goods. All of our products are hand made by us in our home town of Gothenburg. We bring you a passion for our craft instead of overpriced mass production. We offer you our knowledge and skill and a world away from some of the appalling exploitative conditions at large scale manufacturers. We welcome your ideas and cherish our relationship with our customers.

Material

Leather is a special material, as every skin is distinctive being imbued with its own stories by virtue of its preparation, scars, coloration and wrinkles. It has always been one of the most sought after materials for a wide range of diverse applications. Over the years I have collected a stock of hand-picked skins from all over Europe, with an eye for the particular and the valuable. The fancier and more colorful specimens originate predominately in Italy and Spain, whilst Sweden and Germany provide excellent organically tanned hides. All skins are from edible animals, so no animal was just killed for the leather.

A personal network of traders provides us with a wide range of garniture which enables me to meet the individual requirements of my customers as well as servicing my own product lines. For trimmings such as belt buckles, zippers and accessories my preferred designers hail from France and Italy.

She is very social, and natural when it comes to customer service. The inspiration she draws from the city of Gothenburg and the loving support she gets from her partner and her patchwork family means that she is living out her dream.
