Maker - Hazel
Who are you?
I'm Holly, the designer behind Hazel. Hazel is my grandmother, just one of the many beautiful, intelligent and inspirational women I have been blessed to be surrounded by. The symbol of Hazel represents longevity which is reflected in the quality and timelessness of each piece.
Where are you based?
Sunshine Coast, Queensland
How did your brand come about?
When faced with a fork in the road, I decided to pursue my passion of designing and creating bespoke, colourful, textural handbags and accessories.
A love of travel and all things Balinese, brought these designs to my favourite holiday destination. I sought to find a leather artisan who could bring my designs to life with the care and attention to detail that I pride herself on. Fate brought me to Piero, a leather craftsman who was able to do just that. Through the work created by Hazel, Piero employs 4 other craftsmen within his home-based workshop.
This is just the beginning!
