About Laura Burkett

Much of my design inspiration and techniques were born out of my time in Perugia, Umbria, where I worked with a local cobbler (who spoke no English!) to produce my very first design and learn all I could about how and where to source the best materials. I now produce all my work in the US using the tagline Inspired-in-Italy- Made-in-America. Central to my idea of quality is allowing the material itself to shine through alongside careful craftsmanship. Leather is a precious resource that, if chosen wisely, needs little embellishment to produce a gorgeous end result. I thus choose each hide myself to ensure a rich, supple hand that delivers as much delight as the design itself.
