Namu is owned and run by us, Whale and Christine, in Brisbane. We design and hand make all our products including stitching, so each item has its own unique and special detail.
| Namu // 나무 | 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 purchase our leather from selected tanneries in Italy and mainly use full grain 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. It is of high quality and ages timelessly.
Pieces sold at Namu include: pouches, wallets, camera accessories, bags and many more. We occasionally combine up-cycled materials and collaborate with local artists and makers to create one-off pieces.
For our packaging, we mainly use compostable mailers or reusable boxes and plastic- free wrapping and tapes. At Namu, we are still looking for sustainable alternatives.
Thank you for your support and we hope you enjoy using your Namu product.
Love from Whale, Christine and Aiko
