Hi, I am Marlene Busby, a Taranaki girl, born and breed. I have been sewing for as long as I can remember, since before I even went to school. Inspired by my mother to use my imagination and be independent and creative. I have a dedicated home sewing studio, and have an extensive range of leathers and other natural materials, along with a selection of domestic and industrial sewing machines that enables me to work with a broad range of materials. My passion is in designing and making bespoke bags, and other fashion accessories like belts, glass cases and purses. My favourite medium is Leather, mixed with repurposed materials, like felt, wool, silk and cotton. I enjoy creating visually attractive designs, above all each item has to be practical and useful.
