My Story

My story is simple - I want to share my love of colour and quirky retro vintage fashion with the world 

Hence the creation of Daffi Leather - beautiful belts to celebrate everyones curves! Since inception in 2019 the brand has expanded to incorporate my love of retro fashion  - for you and your home....bringing colour and rainbows into every aspect of life. 

With no prior leather craft or fashion design experience but plenty of ideas, enthusiasm and a  passion for boho vintage fashion, I embarked on a leather craft journey. Starting with raw materials I use traditional and self taught methods including my unique 5 step dye process that gives a vintage finished look to each belt. All of my jacket and vest designs are inspired by vintage retro and western fashion, I mix modern metallics with antique style custom leathers to create my unique, bold and unapologetic Fringe Leather Studio Jackets and Vests. 

Our products are stocked in small quirky shops and we do regular markets, festivals and events so I can continue to be inspired and expand my range by connecting with my customers.
