Leaves are an incredible organic material which are all unique and feature amazing textures and patterns. As such they can be the perfect base to create stylish personal accessories and gifts. Once coated with with a special mixture of eco-friendly resin and cotton, leaves can be used to create a leather-like material that is lightweight yet highly functional and durable. This is what we call leaf leather.

Using a technique similar to one that has been used in various parts of Asia for generations to create waterproof roofing and furniture, it is possible to create this beautiful material and use it to craft everything from wallets and purses to large totes and bags.

Most importantly of all, our products are what we like to call karma-neutral. In other words, the do not involve any cruelty to animals, or damage to our environment. In our designs we use sustainably obtained fallen tree leaves which is then processed, dried & coloured using natural methods.

Each piece is handmade and dyed by hand in a small crafting community where every worker is paid fairly for the work they produce.

We try to do everything possible to ensure that we are doing the best we can to create luxury items which also bringing you peace of mind regarding their creation.
