About Us

Welcome to Amanda Jayne!

 I'm Amanda, mum of two and step-mum to one.

I design, cut and sew each piece from my small studio in our family home in Temuka, South Canterbury. 

 I have a background in fashion and graphic design and a real love for our beautiful New Zealand leathers. 

It's not just the feel, the grain and the smell of leather that binds me to it. By investing in a leather item, you are purchasing something that will last you year after year and like us, will only get better with age.

I do not necessarily choose to use only the perfect hides. I really like the character of the blemishes - it tells the story of where it came from. Some of my bags celebrate this. Annie for example, is not perfect. Made of super soft leather, she is a little rough around the edges. This is enjoyed by my customers, as a way to really use their bag, without being too precious.

With the help of my partner and our wee tribe of delightful little people, my range of bags grew and our gorgeous soft-soled, leather baby shoes were introduced.

We love our shoes for our daughter Lily, and we know you'll love them too.

I added washable/ reusable face masks to my range recently. I learned of the enormous amount of disposable masks that now litter our planet. As well as some of the horrendous conditions they are mass-produced in. By buying a reusable, fabric mask, you are directly contributing to helping our earth keep clean.

I'm trying to make as smaller mark on our planet as possible so I now use 100% compostable courier bags but I do also try and recycle all packaging where it is possible to do so.   Amanda x
