"We are DoBo"
At DoBo our bags are made with love and care in our Warrandyte studio using the finest leather and suede. From humble beginnings, the first bag was a simple tote, a single piece of dyed suede, unlined and hand stitched, we have evolved. Today, our designer Mark, still produces bags with a focus on pared back, uncluttered functional design.
We embrace the concept of modern maker and delight in the knowledge that each bag is unique believing that a discerning customer isn’t preoccupied by the latest trend or seasonal “it bag”.
The life and use of a bag is as important to us as is it's aesthetic. The aging process of leather is called patina; this can be easily understood as visible wear. DoBo produces quality bags and accessories that are made to be used. We like variation, embrace the unique and do not use words like flawed or imperfect.
We hope you do too.
My husband commissioned Mark to make me a tote. He was guided through the consultation process, advised on suitable leathers, colours and finishes.
The result was the best present I could have wished for: stylish, elegant, practical.
Thank you, the bags are beautiful, really lovely. I feel privileged to own some of your fine work. I will enjoy using them often.
How beautiful is my bag. Hand-stitched, hand-dyed suede with my initials on a strip of leather inside. It also looks like an old friend, not new or shiny, but something with its own distinct characteristics.
Fits right in.
