The Filly Story

The Filly Story


This simple truth is what triggered the filly leather story… It started in response to a knock on the door, a man in need with a box of leather offcuts and some tools that he desperately needed to sell. With no experience I found myself making my very first leather item; an unique rugged looking handmade handbag for my wife – she loved it. Soon followed my first iPad sleeve and ever since the requests haven’t stopped. The production of custom leather items combined with quality finally led to the formation of the Filly Leather business. Filly Leather not only values the satisfaction of our customers but at the same time we seek every opportunity to bring hope to the hopeless by employing the unemployed.

What was first just a garage hobby is now a living dream – producing high quality handmade leather products while caring for people. Every Filly product you buy is making a difference in the life of someone in need. Motivated to honour our God the Creator through business!
