Paterson Salisbury is an Australian label run by Cameron Paterson and Joram Salisbury. The pair begun working with leather in 2009, slowly evolving their skills with Australian and New Zealand leathers into a small range released in 2012.

Today they continue to build upon their range of bags, purses and wallets. All pieces are made exclusively by Joram and Cameron in their workshop, nestled at the foothills of the Illawarra Escarpment, New South Wales.

 
Our Philosophy: No shortcuts. Take the time to make each item out of the best materials, with the best methods, fit for a lifetime of use. If we focus on the details, the beauty will emerge.

Luxury meets simplicity.
"Rather than producing one particular style in volume, we do small runs of five bags at a time to maintain focus and attention to detail... This way, every piece becomes a statement of our standards."

What is Australia?
"We're still working it out. We're always asking the question of how Australia shapes us and what we make. Australia has a rugged beauty that we want to express and we often reference the early sketches and paintings that capture the unique landscape and wonder."

"Kangaroo leather is appreciated for its strength and durability. After evolving for over 15 million years in a harsh landscape like this you start to understand why."

The Small Bucket Bag.

The final buffing before boxing.
"It's the last goodbye before it heads off for its real life - for someone else to love and use."
