Timeless elegance

  • • Lucie uses Italian certified leather
  • • She enjoys custom made tailoring
  • • Sewing machines fascinated her as a child

Lucie Telecká handcrafts smart, simple and solid leather objects; perfectly elaborated pieces of high quality seemingly lacking nothing. Yet it's the designer herself who claims that no product of hers is complete until someone uses it. "Only once my products are being used, I consider them finished. They have to serve. Unless they're nothing more than decoration." Every piece is handmade by the designer herself who rarely has any assistance. The graduate of Westminster University in London took part in internships in France, the United Kingdom and Czechia, gaining experience of various types of leatherwork. After that, she founded her brand Leather Utilities, combining all the different techniques that she had learnt.
