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.
We offer private consultations and private trunk shows upon request. Simply contact us here.
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.
Introducing smart device to your leather goods, we will include a smart device with every purchase above $1,000. Default is noir taurillon leather.
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.
L I N 8 strives to reduce waste in the long term. L I N 8 leather goods are made timeless with natural full grain to ensure longevity. Reconstituted and bonded leathers are not used because strength and quality are compromised. The tanneries where L I N 8 gets leathers from adhere to strict ISO 26000 social responsibility standards.
Our bespoke packaging is handcrafted in Melbourne. Handcrafted so you can relish in your memories by displaying our accessories. Applicable to our bespoke services, and some small leather goods.
L I N 8 sources directly from leather goods hardware makers, zip makers and leather tanneries. Direct sourcing from Italy, Switzerland and France help maintain and improve our standards. Additionally, this practice also aligns with our values of responsible manufacturing.
L I N 8 is also registered for GST, which means tourists can claim Tourist Refund Scheme duty free shopping.
Leather for our Gym Straps and Pot Holder are sourced from local leather supplier that sources from New Zealand.
If all materials are available at the workshop and once you have confirmed your bespoke piece design, it will take another 3-4 weeks for completion (allowing time for prototyping and crafting). If we are looking at importing more leathers in, it can take up to 3-12 months. Made to measure services are available from $5,000 onwards and/ or subject to availability.
