About Us

IEFrancis is a small-scale leather goods label based in Melbourne, Australia.

For almost five years, we have designed and manufactured high quality, minimalist leather small goods in-house.

We use mainly premium vegetable-tanned kangaroo leather from a tannery in Sydney due to its toughness, beautiful finish, and abundant local supply.

IEFrancis is the creation of Isaac Francis, a Melbourne based industrial designer and ex boot-maker. We believe in a minimalist aesthetic, simple functionality, and the longevity and beauty that comes with premium materials, sourced locally whenever possible.

Our products are designed, and patterns drafted using modern techniques and equipment, but manufactured using traditional techniques which have been used to manufacture the best leather products over the last 100 years.

We machine stitch each product with thick bonded nylon thread, which is UV/moisture/heat resistant and very long-lasting.

Each product is made and finished by hand, in small batches to ensure the highest standard is kept.
