Where is persuede made?

Persuede is proudly Australian made. As a designer/ maker, Tina has crafted Persuede in her design studio wherever that may be as she moved around the country.
Originally from Adelaide, South Australia, Tina relocated to Sydney in 2004 where Persuede set up a studio in Newtown until 2008, selling from her stall at Paddington Market each Saturday, and supplying galleries focusing on handcrafted, Australian made products.

Opting for a seachange with her husband, when pregnant with their first child,
Persuede is now created in a small seaside town in Victoria, where Tina balances creativity with raising her three young daughters.

'Concentrating on the creation of the distinctive design panels on the front of each Persuede item, I have outsourced the remaining manufacturing, supporting local industry in Victoria. Keeping Persuede production in Australia reduces carbon emissions in freight, from inception through to completed product.
Having the utmost respect that leather is an animal product, and the many processes it has travelled before becoming Persuede, I ensures there is limited wastage, every part of a skin can be cut into a shape to create one of my unique designs'.

Will Persuede custom make an item?

Sure! We can change the colours on the design panel, or the leather of the item itself can be altered to suit your taste. Send us an email to discuss what you'd like. But when it comes to custom work patience is a virtue! We always do our best to get things done but handwork should never be rushed.
