Where it all starts

The Background

Nestled inside an alleyway in Tsuen Wan Hong Kong is where the magic happens, behind the number ‘16C’ hides our small factory where hundreds of leather goods are being crafted daily behind doors.


‘The majority think the manufacturing industry in Hong Kong is dying, it’s true that a lot of factories have moved to China so there isn’t much left in this city. Yet there's still craftsmen like me who see "Made in Hong Kong" as our pride and we’re striving to retain the beauty of Hong Kong produce. Certain people might perceive this as a kind of ‘stubbornness’ yet I believe that our selection of premium materials and peculiar attention to detail are irreplaceable.’

EST. 2016

Established in 2016, the In-house leather factory is animated/vitalized by leather craftsmen Lee and Wing, we strongly believe that our dedication to craftsmanship is what differentiates us from the rest. We specialize in producing everyday leather goods, carry-on and accessories from premium materials that we are proud of.

Lee is backed by more than 40 years of experience in leather craftsmanship, he started his leather crafting career at the age of 17. He witnessed the leather industry transition of Hong Kong and how it shifted from hundreds of leather factories to almost zero. We entrust him to exercise his professionalism and skills at Grams28 and nurture the business together.
