Bags by Jo

When I design the leather items that I make, I strive to preserve the simplicity and raw authenticity of the leather itself. I don’t use anything other than genuine leather in my products, and I allow the inside surfaces and stitching on the products to be visible. The intricate rows of stitching and the beautiful natural underside of the leather add character and compliment the aesthetic of the leather goods.

The making of each unique bag requires hours of handmade craft work with carefully curated leather and finely stitched threads. Because the craft highlights the natural characteristics of the leather, no two products are exactly alike. The natural variations in the leather ensure that your bag or accessory will be one of a kind.
