FLDT is Adelaide’s newest custom leather business that is locally produced. It uses high-end Italian vegetable tanned leather that promises to last forever and ages beautifully.
Founded by award-winning handbag designer Katya Komarova, FLDT was an opportunity to transfer her knowledge and experience working with leather to design and create custom leather goods to help businesses tell their story in style.
The creative brand name, FLDT, was chosen as an acronym for FoLD iT, epitomising the ethos of the business. The leather goods are created using laser-cutting and press-studs with a folding technique, therefore there’s no stitching and minimal wastage.
The concept originates from Katya’s handbag label that adopts the same principles. Following the successful introduction of leather menus, and discovering other gaps in the market for luxury leather accessories, FLDT is expanding its range.
“We are adding more products to our range which will include corporate gifting customised and branded for your business, and home office accessories including leather coasters, leather desk pad, leather mouse pad, leather placemat set, leather storage basket, leather storage tray, and a leather tissue box holder” explains Katya.
After many years as a successful handbag designer with a keen interest in all things entrepreneurship, Katya is mastering a new application for her love of leather. In late 2021, Katya was approached by upscale SA restaurant Arkhe to design and produce their new menus. After receiving high praise from the restaurant and its customers, Katya decided to launch a second brand and start a new journey.
FLDT’s products are produced locally using high-end Italian vegetable tanned leather which lasts forever and ages beautifully, while also being more sustainable compared to other options on the market. Leather provides a luxurious touch and elevates the look and feel for homewares and corporate products promoting customer satisfaction.
With personalisation at the heart of the brand, FLDT works with their clients to design and then produce quality leather goods for restaurants, bars, hotels and corporate businesses utilising the finest materials from around the world.
