Product designers Paul Kinny and Christina Teresinski, founders of the newly launched Made Measure in Melbourne, are in the midst of a love affair with leather. Their first collection consists of simple, handcrafted handles and pulls made in their studio of high-grade leather that improves with age. They also make wallets and iPad cases from the same leather. And in case you need a customized version of their designs, they stand ready to assist.
Above: The Leather Handle is available in four colors: British Tan (shown), Natural, Chocolate, and Black. It also comes in different styles: No Stitch, Matching Stitch, (shown), and Contrast Stitch, and you can choose from a handle with single or double holes; prices start at AUD $18 from Made Measure.
Above: An option we haven't seen before: leather drawer pulls that sit flush on top of a drawer face. The Leather Pull Recessed in Saddle Tan (top) and Black (bottom) are made from vegetable-tanned leather and measure 40 millimeter wide and 195 millimeter long. The pulls are also available in Natural and Chocolate; AUD $29.50 each.
