To create minimalist leather goods that last, are fairly priced !
Marry the unparalleled skill of master artisans with the finest materials and the result is exquisite – minimalist, highly functional pieces for travel and work that last the distance. The antithesis of fast fashion, we eschew mass-production in favor of a curated, personalized collection that is crafted on demand. We are not for the masses; rather choosing to appeal to those discerning few who seek quality and substance over inflated brand names.
To make your dream a reality we sought out communities with a rich heritage in leather production and workmanship. Our travels brought us to Sialkot where no workshops were selected out of hundreds to handcraft our premium leather goods so we decided to start our own in Narowal, Pakistan. Here, we handpicked individuals with intimate knowledge of old-world leather working techniques. Each Blackbird creation is hand drafted, cut, sewn and burnished in these workshops by artisans with decades of experience. Modern, considered designs are combined with traditional know how to create effortless luxury.
For a product to last a lifetime, you need to begin with premium materials. The leather at the heart of our collection is custom-developed using the finest quality hides from the same tanneries supplying luxury Italian brands. Full grain leather is exquisite to touch and has a character of its own. It ages gracefully and develops a rich patina, hinting at its unique journey. Our leather wallets & accessories are crafted from a combination of luxurious twill, and polished hardware. Every aspect has been carefully considered to create a product that only gets better with age.
Each piece is designed in-house in Narowal, Pakistan with a focus on clean lines and high functionality. Our products will never be cluttered by huge logos – we let the premium materials and masterful craftsmanship speak for themselves.
Social responsibility is a key part of our business ethos. We believe that happy people make quality products, and that commerce can result in significant positive impact for communities. This isn’t just charity – it also makes good business sense.
By circumventing large factories, designing in-house and cutting out middlemen, we’re able to deliver premium, personalized pieces at a fraction of the expected price. We choose to do business sustainably and empower local communities in the process.
