To express yourself there has to be a knowledge of who you are. No expression is made without courage. That is why Noble-Handmade encourages its customer to 'be courageous'. To choose the purest and most radical way to reveal ourselves to the people around us. Much of our expression is seen through the way that we adorn ourselves with clothes and accessories. The outward image we choose to show others paints a portrait of both who we are choosing to be and our innate character.
We want our bags and handmade goods to be unique products that our customer can feel totally themselves in. The feeling of satisfaction that comes from wearing an article of clothing that you love, that is also used for its own unique function.We are interested in the beauty of functionality. A well designed, but functional object never grows old. So with Noble-Handmade we are pursuing good design whilst staying true to the foundations of an object's purpose.
The word 'Noble' is both an ideaology of our brand but it is also an identity, as it is the middle name of the Maker and Designer, Dom Callaghan; who came from an art background, studying at The Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art. Dom then received the Platform Art Prize which gave him the means to expand his art practice to encompass the likes of woodwork and leathercraft.
The 'Handmade' aspect of our brand is also very key to our ideals. Every bag and bespoke project is handmade from start to finish. The leather, that is sourced ethically and of european origin, is handstitched to ensure the process of making is pure from start to finish.
