The Story of The Leather Studio of Kinsale

Our mission is to create authentic products that embody original designs and fine craftsmanship. We empower every living soul to wear them with pride and confidence.

Welcome to The Leather Studio of Kinsale where creativity meets style.

Originally from Transylvania, Danny Albu, the founder of the company, fell in love with the beauty of Kinsale when he first moved here with his family. Having an entrepreneurial spirit and a huge passion for the creation and leather design, and wishing that every woman on the planet should be able to have the handbag of her dream, in 2019, he decided to open The Leather Studio of Kinsale.



With 30 years of experience in leather design and leather craft, his favorite quote sums up his mentality, perfectly: 

“Let the beauty of what you love be what you do” - Rumi
