How did you come up with your business idea?
First of, I love leather goods a little bit too much. I started collecting leather goods when I was in college. Then I notice that most of the bags that I bought has some similarities; the simplicity of the design, materials and shapes. So it got me thinking to start designing my own leather goods.
I was very grateful when I found my best business partners. We shared our experience, passion and ideas in leather. After few jot downs in paper and many sips of cuppa, we finally set our sail together as business partners. We created a unique market niche, which to produce simple and luxury yet affordable leather goods.
