Namu is owned and run by us, Whale and Christine. All leather products are 100% handmade by us in our home studio in Brisbane, Australia.
|Namu| meaning tree in Korean, was decided as our name as we wished for our business to sprout, grow and branch out like a tree. We also hope that our products resemble the nature of trees, by lasting for a long time and revealing its charm, characteristics and value as it ages.
We mainly use Italian imported vegetable- tanned leather which is leather that has gone through a tanning process that uses materials from organic ingredients such as bark instead of chemicals.
Pieces sold at Namu include: pouches, card holders, clutches, keyring, camera straps, bags and many more. Each piece is handmade, including stitching, and therefore has its own unique and special detail. We occasionally combine up-cycled materials, and collaborate with local artists and makers to create one- off pieces.
