It seems that 2020 has come and gone so fast that it is the year that never was. I suppose a pandemic will do that to the world. We very quickly decided to work with a country that will need help through this terrible time and decided upon using India for many reasons. Take a look at our genuine leather goods.
As we are slow fashion and love hand made goods many of the textiles produced in India fit our brief and we were lucky enough to find a small local business in Jupuir to work with. But as the months passed we started to expand our aid and found other businesses in areas to work with also.
As our stunning hand block stamped and stitched Kantha Quilts began to sell we decided to try a new concept altogether and started designing leather goods. Genuine leather, no synthetic leather, only the real thing. Our tote bags, ladies wallets and handcrafted journals are now very loved by the Australian community. Our leather journal covers can be reused and the pages refilled, so it should last a lifetime and more!
All the paper is hand made and recycled from cotton, making it 'rag paper' and a delight to write or draw on. While some tote bags are all leather, we also designed some with embroidery, but, we do not design the pattern as we ask each artisan to tell their own story. So, when we get one back that has large hearts it, it means the world to us as we know that person, who we will never meet is saying thank you for all the work we are giving them. Without our support, many of these small village communities would have no work, no money, and then no food.
Our Christmas gifts collection starts at just $15 and we have lots of things to choose from. Prices under and over $65, including our leather journals, clutch purses, cloth-covered notebooks, ladies wallets, vintage beach bags, tote bags, kimono's, quilts and of course our signature range of luxury Linen bedding.
