One Piece Collection : a BUSYMAN collaboration with simétrie

Six years ago we developed a pair of wallets based on a simple principle of one piece of folded leather with minimal stitching. Since then I've been using one myself and I've made a handful for individual customers and some gifts for friends and family. After 6 years they have developed great patina and are still going strong.

In collaboration with Simone at simétrie workshop we have been refining the design and she will be launching the co-branded One Piece bifold and card wallets at The Big Design Market in Melbourne this weekend starting Friday.

The wallets are made in-house by Simone at simétrie workshop from sustainable vegetable tanned kangaroo leather. Check out the simétrie website to learn more about the ethos behind the brand as well as the other beautifully hand crafted bags and accessories on offer. The relationship between Busyman and Simone began when she interned with me as an undergraduate fashion design student and several years as my part time leather craft assistant.

In the future we hope to add more styles to the One Piece Collection.
