Welcome to Steven Harkin Leather Bags
G'day and welcome!
At the moment, my workshop is based in New South Wales, Australia, midway between Sydney and Brisbane. Come and say hello if you are in the area of Coffs Harbour. My workshop is situated at Awl Leather in the Old Butter Factory, Bellingen, "hippie turned into hipster" town, full of cafes, nice shops and good vibes. A great place to spend a day out!
Of course, you don't HAVE to come. We have been selling online for the past 10 years, via Amazon, Etsy and our own website. You can shop comfortably from anywhere you are. It's safe and easy.
Handmade To Order
I design and make all my own bags, often inspired by a shape seen in nature, a sports car or a building. When you order a bag, I’ll cut the leather chosen by you and glue and stitch the parts together for a timeless and contemporary design especially MADE FOR YOU. The bag you'll get will be unique because, aside from a design that is different from what is available on the High Street (or even what big brands offer), leather is never the same, never perfect and my stitching may vary (just a bit). Your bag will be special, signed and dated inside so that you can remember the story of your purchase. A wedding, a new job, a special birthday or just the day you fell in love with that bag!
Steven Harkin Introduction
2006 is the year Barbara and I launched the Steven Harkin brand in London. In this interview, I talk about how I came to Britain, how I work and what inspires me.
