Bespoke Leather Accessories
We use locally sourced vegetable tanned Kangaroo leather to handcraft our original OĦTI Studio designs. Each hide that we use is unique, featuring markings that celebrate the beauty of veg-tanned leather. Every one of our pieces is handcrafted in the Melbourne based OĦTI Studio and made to order. Available in 8 earthy tones, with the option of silver or bronze hardware and full customisation. When worn our beautiful, buttery soft kangaroo leather will further soften and mould to you, forming an alluring, unique patina and truly becoming your own.
Our belts and straps are made using premium veg-tanned Italian double butt leather.
OĦTI Studio is passionate about ethical practices and proudly slow fashion in motion. Handcrafting and customising our beautiful designs which are made to order, gives us the unique ability to create and craft only what we need. It also allows us to tailor our designs for each individual and valued customer, who in turn will cherish their new, one of a kind OĦTI Studio leather accessory. By working symbiotically to consciously create & consume; meeting demand with supply together we are actively minimising our environmental impact.
Unable to return to North Africa for the foreseeable future, naturally it was time to adapt and further incorporate my life and love for Morocco with my roots here in Melbourne. I’ve been busy experimenting with techniques absorbed deep inside those Moroccan Medinas. Working closely with fellow Aussie's we've sourced veg-tanned kangaroo leather, created using the same techniques that our Moroccan counterparts use in those endearing ancient tanneries.
I've spent months tinkering away in my Melbourne workshop, crafting new OĦTI Studio designs that embody the raw beauty of leather and the sharp, polished vibe of Melbourne city streets. Combining the skills I've acquired while working with traditional leather artisans and veg-tanned leather in Morocco.
