Since 2012, A-ESQUE has
crafted leather goods by
hand from its quietly bustling
space on an industrial
backstreetof Melbourne’s
There, among the scattered
swatches of imported leather,
seasoned sewing machines,
cutting tables,
and under the watchful eye
of A-ESQUE’s Master Pattern
makern, ideas dawn on paper,
evolve into tangible samples,
and, when proven worthy,
take shape as supple
leather pieces designed
to satisfy the demands
of practicality as well
as the raw desire to own
beautiful things of
exceptional quality.
