About


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.

Materials

All products are made from a selection of European vegetable tanned leathers, which is tanned using tannis extracted from vegetable matter such as chestnut and bark. Vegetable tanned leather ages with use, forming a patina and character which is unique to its owner. 

Process

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. 

Made to Order

Most items are made to order. A variety of leathers and thread is available and provides an option to customise the products. Each product also comes with complimentary personalisation. If you would like your item personalised, please enter your personalisation request in the message box at the checkout.
