Ellis White’s futuristic upcycled leather shoes and accessories are certainly not for shy retiring types! With a focus on material innovation and experimental production methods, the Australian designer pushes the boundaries of contemporary accessorising, without compromising practicality and function.
Structured forms and colour blocking is White’s specialty, as she creates her designs from BitLeather – (an original leather composite which recycles waste leather into a versatile material with a stone-like appearance), from her London based studio.
Ellis designs footwear for both men and women, using two types of BitLeather – a type with a hard, smooth finish and a softer, flexible rubber version. As a result, her collection is full of texture and character.
