We’re very excited to present our first Featured Business for 2015. We were with this business from the outset with their quest for a new laser machine which was acquired with the help of a brilliant Kick-Starter campaign, and have seen them go from strength to strength since. Starting off with creating bespoke leather goods by hand, and now supplying Melbourne and Australia a variety of gorgeous individualised engraved and laser cut leather goods using their brand new Trotec Laser. The Engravers Register can also vouch for them, with our manager’s Titanium Marketing & PR being fortunate enough to secure a couple of their gorgeous pieces! We can’t wait to see what 2015 brings them. Welcome Chocolate Brownie – don’t forget to check out their amazing online store!

How did you get into business or get started?
Through jewellery strangely enough. Some of my jewellery pieces were on show at a conference about new technology in craft and design. My pieces were representing what can be done with rapid prototyping. At this time I was just doing leatherwork as a side project. But it was here that I made connections with a local university, and was given the opportunity to try my leather patterns on their laser cutter. After my first attempt I was sold… I needed a laser cutter! And it’s been since then that I have been in pursuit of getting my own.
What is your specialty?
Leather… In particular vegetable-tanned leather.
What makes you unique?:
My art and design background… I have been involved in these industries/disciplines for 10 years now, and have developed a unique design sensibility as well as good understanding of a variety of materials and their properties.
What is your favourite job you have done?
A custom leather briefcase… It was the beginning of me taking my leather goods to a new level of complication and quality.
What is your dream project?
I want to make furniture! I’d love the opportunity to work on some beautifully clean and simple modular-style furniture.
Finally, what is the all time favourite job you have seen?
