Can you share a little more about your values?
All of our Graine leather accessories are crafted in our Brunswick East workshop in small runs by our leather craftsman, Albert, using traditional leather working techniques. The Graine philosophy is to craft timeless leather accessories with a focus on sustainability, functionality and durability. We source all of our hides from an Australian owned and operated tannery in Victoria. This tannery has the highest certified rating from The Leather Working Group; LWG enforces environment stewardship in the leather manufacturing industry. We’re also proudly certified to use the Australian Made and Australian Grown logo on all of our designs.

Any extra efforts you make at Graine that you can share?
At Graine we feel it’s imperative to support local businesses, charities and organisations. We aim to do this by donating selected Australian made leather bags and accessories to local community initiatives that advocate supporting families, children, women and agriculture. These initiatives create a positive social impact and awareness around important causes that are close to our hearts and align with our businesses ethics.
We are committed to designing and manufacturing our leather accessories in Melbourne, Australia which keeps jobs and dollars in our country, while minimizing our carbon footprint by reducing the size of our supply chain. We believe by that supporting our local community, local talent and our environment it will contribute to shaping a more sustainable and stronger economy within the Australian fashion industry. We aim to give back where we can and look forward to sharing our progress with you along our journey.
