MW Makes is a leather goods brand set up by Michelle Wong in 2017. Developed through a passion for design and craftsmanship, MW Makes creates handcrafted leather goods for the everyday. Influenced by a background in architecture, each item is carefully designed with an emphasis on simple geometries, clean lines and functionality.


All products are made from a selection of oak tanned and vegetable tanned leathers from selected UK and Italian tanneries. This means the leather is chrome-free and is tanned using tannins extracted from vegetable matter such as chestnut and bark. Oak tanned and vegetable tanned leather ages with use, forming a patina and character which is unique to its owner.


All items are handmade from start to finish by Michelle, from her home studio. Traditional saddlery tools and techniques are used, such as saddle stitching and hand burnishing. The result is a collection of simple, yet functional items that are made to last.
