Tovi Sorga

Stroud, United Kingdom | 10,466 Sales

Announcement    Tovi Sorga is a British designer and craftsman specialising in printed leather. His luxurious, hand-crafted accessories are internationally renowned for their unique print quality and beautiful design.

Self taught in leather-craft, Tovi started out selling larger jewellery pieces in East London boutiques until his early, unorthodox experimentations with printed tech cases became an online success overnight. A decade on, his unique technique produces some of the finest printed leather in the world – rich, durable, high-definition prints that celebrate the natural tactility of leather.

Today Tovi designs with his partner, Agnes Davis, who takes care of the sales and marketing aspects of the business. With a love of both contemporary and classical imagery, their collections are inspired by wild nature, and a desire to imbue digital print with the energy and integrity of traditional craft techniques. They are supported by a wide following of international customers who return time and again for beautiful, statement pieces. Featured widely in the press, their work has also been commissioned by the likes of The Royal Academy and the Rijksmuseum. Since 2016 the brand has been working with Barclaycard to create the UK's most beautiful contactless payment wearables, which can be shopped at www.tovisorga.com.

The majority of the brand’s products, from tech cases to key fobs, are printed and hand-crafted in their Gloucestershire studio. To meet an ever-growing demand, the brand now also works with wonderful manufactures in the UK and abroad, who have generations of leatherwork experience and a warm, collaborative ethos.

ETHICAL LUXURY

Wherever possible Tovi Sorga packaging - from luxurious embossed box to mailing bag - is recycled, biodegradable and sourced from local British manufacturers. Our tech cases employ state of the art micro-suction technology to make them 90% biodegradable, and in all our processes we strive to eliminate waste and toxicity so that in generations to come our products will return to nature as kindly as they emerged from it.

The Tovi Sorga brand is passionately committed to environmental sustainability. We only use leathers that are recycled as a waste product of the food industry, and seek trusted British and European suppliers who meet strict European standards of animal and worker welfare.

Beautiful, handmade, printed leather accessories that make your everyday things less ordinary.

TOVI SORGA
is an independent artist, designer and craftsman of bespoke, printed leather fashion accessories. He is one of the only leather-craft artisans creating for the fashion market in the UK who works with printed leather. Each product is designed and printed in-house, and then hand-stitched on a vintage Singer sewing machine – the only tool with which to achieve absolute control and accuracy in the manufacturing process. 

Drawing inspiration from fashion, nature, art, music and history, all graphic designs are original, and are printed directly onto 100% fine calf skin leather and cow hide. Tovi selects choice hides that he treats himself to achieve the trademark sensuous, ‘buttery’ texture of his products. 

A BIT OF HISTORY
Tovi began his career in leather-craft producing large jewellery designs that incorporated silver and gold. Demand for these products grew around London boutiques. Within one year Tovi had started to design more ambitious leather fashion accessories in response to a growing demand for individualised commissions. 

Having set up a full-time studio space in London in 2009, Tovi moved to Bristol, where he has been operating since 2011. Tovi loves the relaxed, creative atmosphere of the ‘best city to live in in the UK’, and it shows in the scope and popularity of his work. Recent collaborators include tattoo designers and corset makers, while new designs have been inspired by motifs as varied as political contemporary art and traditional botanical illustrations. Watch www.tovisorga.com to see what the future brings.

PLEASE NOTE
All Tovi Sorga leather accessories are handmade to order and our current ‘make to ship’ time is, on average, 15 days.
If you order one item your package will be sent by normal post; two or more items and your package will be posted with tracking.

Shop policies

Last updated on March 3, 2020
Welcome to Tovi Sorga. We are proud to be specialists in printed leather, and we handcraft the majority of our accessories in our studio in Gloucestershire, UK.

We've set out some leather care tips for you below, as well as our shop policies. Please don't hesitate to get in touch with any questions at info [!at] tovisorga.com.

SIMPLE TIPS
TO PROTECT YOUR PRINTED LEATHER ACCESSORIES

Leather is a natural product and benefits from a little pampering to keep it supple, soft and vibrant. Follow our simple guide to protect your luxurious accessories so they can bring you pleasure for years to come.

1. NURTURE THE LUXURY
Our durable, scuff-resistant accessories are as soft and tactile as the finest unprinted skins on the market because we avoid the plastic lacquers found on other printed-leather products. Natural leather ages gracefully, so please enjoy its changes. Expect an item used everyday to look loved. If you prefer the brand-new effect, we recommend carrying smaller accessories in a bag or spacious pocket to reduce wear and tear.

2. APPLY A GOOD QUALITY LEATHER CREAM REGULARLY
As well as creating a barrier to protect the print from wear and tear, a good cream will strengthen the fibres of the leather and prevent dryness and cracking. We highly recommend Ruskin's Leather Cream.

3. NEVER USE SOLVENTS OR SOLVENT-BASED PRODUCTS

4. AVOID PROLONGED CONTACT WITH THE SUN
The sun has a darkening effect on natural leather and leaving your accessory in direct sunlight for long periods could eventually lead to the print being faded or overshadowed.
