  • Ostrich and crocodile leathers are extremely rare and considered to be some of the most exclusive and valuable exotic leathers in the global market.

Handcrafted leather goods

  • Some pieces or projects may be subjected to a waiting list. 
  • Are all crafted in Australia, wallets are crafted in Singapore, and a couple of designs crafted in the USA. We use traditional French and modern leather crafting techniques. 
  • I work extremely closely with my artisans and they operate as established artisan entities. This means, there is no opportunity for any exploitation and hence complying with any employment laws. 
  • My handbag fittings are made-to-order in Italy and my premium zips are made and customised in Switzerland.
  • I also work closely with other local businesses to deliver the final product, like my premium packaging. 
  • Pieces priced at AUD 188 and under will receive seasonal packaging.

Care for Exotic Leather

  • To find out more, read here


  • I only offer monogramming on my made-to-order L I N 8 pieces. This must be advised upon order.
    • Monogramming is normally done upon cutting of leather prior to assembly of pieces. Simply to lower any erroneous risks, as the materials are dear to both you and I.
    • As I respect the natural finish of leathers, I do not monogram on exotic leathers.
  • Ready-made pieces.
    • I do not offer monogramming on pieces available in stock.
  • I can do blind monogramming on selected accessories
    • Please advise upon ordering
    • This will require a nominal fee of $28.00
    • Please contact me to find out more. 


Special Order

  • Upon my discretion, I can personally design for you and create a new piece from scratch.
    • I note that this is rather highly resource intensive exercise because it involves at least 50 hours of work for a piece of small leather goods.
  • These items will also be available to everybody else and some pieces may be selected to be part of my limited edition collection. 
  • Pieces that are available upon request are subject to a waiting list and my availability.
    • Please contact me to find out more. 
  • These pieces cannot be returned or exchanged for change of mind because they are tailored personally for you. Quality will be checked strictly prior to dispatch.

      • Can only be used once.
      • Cannot be used conjunction with any other offer(s).
