Colony is a leather design label established in 2012 by founder and designer Lisa Ackroyd. The brand is rooted in Lisa’s unbridled desire to create an inspired leather and canvas collection that marries traditional leather materials and craftsmanship, with contemporary requirements and detail. She follows a design philosophy that embodies quality, functionality and great attention to detail. Colony has a wide range of belts, bags, wallets and other small accessories that are classic, stylish and most importantly handmade.

Using traditional techniques and skills, each piece of the Colony collection is cut, sewn, and finished by hand. Colony products celebrate the art of good living, sophistication and adventure. It is our aim to combine vintage aesthetics and modern functionality, which is a unique rarity within the luxury market. All items are designed and made in South Africa.
