About PlumageStudio

Shop online, or contact me to share your needs, and receive a one of a kind, handmade accessory that enhances your personal style.

About us:

Plumage Studio is a family run, Ontario based company dedicated to making high quality, timeless accessories. We create handbags, belts and pet products that are beautiful, durable and functional. Wool tartan, Harris Tweed, as well as William Morris and Rifle Paper Company prints are our favourite companion fabrics to our leather goods, with waxed canvas providing a durable alternative to leather. Our design influences include historical artifacts and nature.

We create with an emphasis on sustainability and low waste. Materials are often up-cycled, and we piece our smaller scraps in order to avoid waste / landfill. Quality materials and techniques combined with enduring design means we avoid fast fashion completely. You can enjoy our goods forever because of our quality and timeless aesthetic.

All of our items are hand made by us using high quality materials such as Italian top grain leathers, handmade Harris Tweed and tartans.

Why leather:

After being disappointed in the longevity of fabric and cork purses, I turned to leather. I wanted something that would last longer and not end up in landfill or unused in the back of the closet.
Leather is a by-product of the meat industry, so turning animal hide into a usable product prevents landfill.
