Our Story

 

 

 

Harrison Australia is a boutique leather brand, based in Melbourne but drawing inspiration from Australia as a whole, from the red dirt bush to the bustling cities and every destination in between. Bringing quality leather products to men and women all over the world is not only a joy for the Bexley family, but it’s also a legacy and one that improves with age, not unlike the leather goods you will find here on our website.

Leather crafting has been in the family for more than 40 years, with Rex Bexley passing on the family trade to son and current Director, Jake Bexley. The Bexley’s have always had a deep passion for leather craftsmanship, which is reflected in the unique Australian leather wallets, belts and accessories that are shipped out daily to local and international customers. You won’t find mass-production or any offshore influences when you shop with Harrisson Australia, as we use traditional tools and the finest materials that yield hard-wearing, soft leather products made to last.

Despite the overcrowded market selling ‘leather’ goods, Jake found himself wandering the aisles of airport boutiques and failing to see any differentiation, even from the top tier retailers who specialise in luxury leather goods. The price simply wasn’t meeting the quality, not to mention Australian leathers were not being represented as an option despite having some of the most coveted leathers. This realisation has driven the personality and unique design of Harrisson Australia’s classic pieces, with Jake striving to design a stunning product that slides into the pockets and lifestyle of our global customer base who are attracted to premium accessories.

Fast forward to now, and Jake is the chief designer of the family business and has made an obsession out of seeking the best supply of materials within Australia, adapting the hand tools and machinery so that it enhances the longevity of these timeless leather wallets, belts and accessories. Whether you’ve heard about Harrisson Australia from top fashion bloggers and YouTubers or stumbled here from the many generous reviews and referrals from our happy customers, here you will find an authentically Australian range of men and women’s artisan-designed leather goods including the best selling compact billfold wallets, extensive belt range and stylish leather keyrings and notebooks.


Harrison Australia uses 100% real Australian leather, with both cowhide and kangaroo leather chosen on their durable merits which retain its form and soft touch for decades to come. You’ll also find that each purchase comes with a generous 5-year warranty, as we stand behind the quality of our goods. Can’t find what you’re looking for or waiting for the next collection of leather products to hit the store? Jake is constantly creating and innovating, so expect to see new designs on the website in due course.
