Meet Matthew Courtnay, Owner & Director of Geelong -based leather tannery AusTANNERS Australia. With over 80 years history in leather production, they pride themselves on producing high quality leathers that will stand the test of time. It’s easy to see why AusTANNERS is the preferred leather supplier to bespoke leather goods producers locally and internationally, supplying Australian-made leathers for saddlery, sports equipment, fashion, upholstery and more.
One of AusTANNERS’ longest standing customers is Graine, a family-owned fashion label which has been designing and crafting a range of bags, belts, wallets and more in Brunswick East, Victoria, for more than 30 years. Second-generation designer and Brand Manager, Kerryn Brodie, believes that when shoppers buy Australian Made leather products they’re “supporting local jobs and the economy”. Graine products are made one at a time, which allows its leather artisans to give extra care and attention to the creation of each new piece.
