L I N 8 /lɪŋŋ/ is a boutique luxury creative and works with boutique workshop artisans in Australia and Singapore with a total of over a century's experience in the craft. Some L I N 8 pieces are available only by limited numbers each year which means we do not craft more than the limited numbers and this information remains discreet between L I N 8 and our clients.
Our journey started in 2015 and we have always advocated for outstanding materials, care and cratsmanship. We set out to create timeless accessories that allow our clients to wear and use our accessories over and over again withstanding time.
In 2019, the world started to see sustainability in a different way and the United Nations created a Charter United Nation's Sustainable Development Goals.

We believe that integrity of the leather goods are respected if we do not mass-produce.
Pieces are usually crafted individually to ensure that quality is met. Each crafts person is responsible for each significant part of the crafted goods.
We are always keeping an open mind in trying different materials that we can incorporate in our accessories. We introduced smart device in 2016 to assist our clients in locating their belongings. In 2017, we introduced the Re.Use bag which is non-ripped.
Unlike other labels, you do not have the opportunity to co-create. At L I N 8, we welcome co-creation, allowing you to select colours and the leather types. Our bespoke service also welcomes you to communicate with our founder to discuss any tailoring requests. We also offer ready-made products (normally wallets) which are listed on our site.
In addition to that, our Made to Measure service welcomes clients who would like to create their accessories from scratch.
