Tori Lo Designs

Tori Lo Designs was established on the North East coast of England in 2015 by designer Vicky Wade. She crosses boundaries within leather work by using fun and creative dying techniques to hand colour every hide, creating an individual and unique surface that the bags can then be moulded from.

Every step of the process is done by hand, using traditional techniques, including cutting, dying, and sewing. The collection of products features vibrant colour ways and unique brush strokes, bridging a border between classic style and artistic flair. 

The emphasis is on quality and endurance that will last for years. The true nature of leather only gets better as the years progress, and a patina develops.
