“Most people wouldn't expect the places I find myself inspired by or the different backgrounds I pull from – whether it's my painting and textiles background or my love for sci-fi, music and books.”

Amanda's passion for creativity stems from her love for leather. She just can't get enough of the material's unique smell or its incomparable durability. Focused on creating well-built accessories, she uses leather to create items that look good – but more than that, items that'll last. All designs start as a sketch, with ideas hitting her at all hours of the night. And each handmade good receives more tender love and care than your average accessory, with Amanda so attached to each of her creations that she remembers exactly what song was playing from her stereo as she was working on it.
