Truso's ethos is 'to sustainably source and to ethically create' with our leathers sourced locally which is certified bi product and remnants from upholsterers. Everything seen in our store is hand crafted by designer Liz from our Melbourne studio.
Truso began upon Liz's return home to Australia in 2008 after living overseas for 2 years. Previous to her travels she was making handbags from her expansive collection of vintage fabrics and was having much success selling them in markets around Sydney. A move away from soft textiles to leather was made to focus on longevity in a product and to add a sense of luxury. Liz also found that working with particular types of leather would still allow for her bright and quirky design aesthetic and Art Deco influence to be seen in her work.
All work is customisable, please use the contact page for a requests you may have.
