Leatherworks Adelaide is a small design studio producing quality handmade leather goods. The product range combines selected fine quality leathers, traditional and contemporary construction techniques with meticulous attention to detail.
Rob McRae is principal designer-maker at Leatherworks and was formally trained in Florentine leather design at the Jam Factory Leather studio (in the original iconic Payneham Road location in Adelaide).
Form and function drive design concepts resulting in classic simplicity, subtle detailing and refined style. All bags have fully lined leather interiors with convenient, user friendly phone and zipper pockets. Logo labels are subtle, understated and placed discreetly on the internal surface.
Every part of the making process is done in the Adelaide studio, all material is hand cut and hand finished in artisan tradition. Select leathers are sourced from Australia and Italy to meet exacting performance standards of hand feel, durability and appearance.
Unique, limited edition and handmade, our philosophy is relatively simple. We use and respect the best materials available, maximise traditional and contemporary techniques and tools, ensure designs function as they should and maintain an overall consistent quality and appearance standard.
Customer satisfaction is an important factor to our success and as such designs are finetuned, refined and evolve based on their valuable feedback. We aim to provide superior products that endure time, continue to look good and offer exceptional value for our customers.
Our designs should not dominate, but simply compliment your own personal style and become the favourite item for many years.
