temono is a melbourne based leather goods label designing and hand crafting leather bags, wallets and accessories and that stand for quality and originality. our leathers are sourced from tanneries with good environmental practices including waste disposal wherever possible. our kangaroo range is vegetable tanned in australia. temono started in tokyo in 2004 out of a love for craft and passion for creativity with the first range called “te.”. since then it has continued to grow, and now has added the temono range to the collection. our theory of design and production remains. temono products are truly hand crafted and our designers sketch the ideas, cut the patterns, source the materials and construct the products in our own studio. our love for the original and dislike of the mass produced, along with our focus on traditional techniques ensures that the product is pre loved. the brand therefore cannot grow out of control where its aura becomes greater than itself.
