Why L I N 8?
L I N 8 is proudly Australian owned and works with boutique workshop artisans in Australia and Singapore with a total of over a century's experience in the craft. A luxury leather goods boutique creative founded by Ling.
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 as stated on the product page.
We offer private consultations and private trunk shows upon request. Simply contact us here.
Why are L I N 8 pieces limited?We believe that integrity of the leather goods are respected if we do not mass-produce.
Introducing smart device to your leather goods, we will include a smart device with every purchase above $1,000. Default is noir taurillon leather.
How L I N 8 revolutionises the way you buy leather goods
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.
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.
How does L I N 8 do it?
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 potentially claim Tourist Refund Scheme - other words, duty free shopping!
Timeline of tailoring and co-creating your bespoke piece
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 I am looking to importing more leathers in, it can take up to 6 months.
Tailoring services are not available for accessories under $5,000 and/ or subject to availability.
