Blackinkk card holders and wallets are designed and made at our light and airy studio in Brisbane with full-grain veg-tanned Australian kangaroo leather.
Strong values for hard-work, discipline, style and individuality are important to us to create beautiful products that represent quality with extraordinary craftsmanship.
There is a huge focus on care and delivering the best product – the perfect design, the right stitch, the right colour, the best material and so on. We are proud of every product we make and scrutinise them far more than their mass-produced twin would be. With so much attention put into each one, they tend to last much longer and perform better over time.
Full-grain veg-tanned Australian kangaroo leather is sourced from a local family-run tannery in Sydney, Australia. The tannery has been in operation for over a 100 years.
We chose to use ethically sourced and produced kangaroo leather as it is sustainable to the local environment, as well as being one of the strongest leathers in the world. In an effort to survive Australia’s harsh environment, kangaroos have developed unique characteristics. The scratches and scarring that are found on your wallet naturally occur on a wild kangaroo.
Kangaroo leather can endure high-stress wear, is resistant to abrasion and has UV protective properties.
This uniquely Australian leather is used throughout the Blackinkk wallet range where style, protection and durability are a high priority.
A Blackinkk wallet is as unique as its owner.
Blackinkk was founded by Varun in late 2015 to create wallets that were minimal, aesthetic and long-lasting. It was born out of love for well-designed and well-made products.
Discovering Dieter Rams' passion for good design during this creative journey, his principles now inspire all product creation at our studio.
In his words, I always strive for things to be sustainable. By that I mean the development of long-lasting products, products that don’t age prematurely, which won’t become out of style. Products that will remain neutral, that you can live with longer.
In 2018, you will see some amazing, honest and thoughtfully designed products from our studio.
