About

Easy is not interesting

Hello!

My name is Corey. Everything in my life was so ordinary, like a calm lake. When impacts came, my whole life was becoming very different.

When I was alone, I started to work on this project: TRIM, to trim away all the negatives and unnecessary things.

The most important feature is to be minimal, that is why it's called TRIM.
I chose leather to be the major material as it’s flexibility. With my furniture design skills, I spent almost 9 hours to complete my very first handmade coin case, and it looks ugly!

My leather teacher was a leather craft guidebook. After studying it for 6 months and did many tests, I felt confident to start my first online shop on 1st Nov 2010. I also understood no one would give attentions to my works unless I make all the items in high standards. So I gave myself 5 targets:

1. To make the items user friendly and durable
2. Use environmental-friendly materials
3. Simplifying the existing designs
4. To make items more authentic
5. To be more unique by using different colors

I was solo-working on this project, it was very hard, but fun, and I have learned so much. After all these years, TRIM leather is still here, and now it is now supporting my whole family.

We would like to thank everyone who come to our shop, reading our stories, asking us questions or even just browse our shop front for 1 second, I truly thank you. Without you guys, TRIM leather would mean nothing.

I’m Corey, thanks for reading our story.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions! We are always available to help.

Here are some quotes we really love:
"Never give up, and stay positive."
"Be brave when scared; be endure when tired."
"Easy is not interesting."
