You can find Jake, the talented fellow behind Harrisson Australia on Instagram, or come meet him at the Makers & Shakers on November 6 at the Coburg Town Hall.
Jake Bexley has always had a passion for leather craftsmanship. Rex Bexley, Jake’s father, has been crafting leather for forty years, giving Jake the opportunity to grow up learning from him and helping him work. Jake decided to follow in his dad’s footsteps. This became a time consuming obsession, sourcing a constant supply of materials within Australia, fine tuning the designs and making and adapting the hand tools and machinery to create truly unique leather products.
Jake now produces a range of durable, stylish, men’s and women’s artisan designed leather goods, including billfold wallets (small, stylish and compact), mens’ and womens’ leather belts, smartphone or tablet covers and unisex key rings.
