Presence is a London-based brand with the purpose of providing people with well-made, good-quality bags and shoes that are long lasting and durable. Made from natural full-grain leather, featuring a clean and simple design. 

Presence believes in slow fashion by making real sturdy products in genuine leather with comfort at the heart of our design. Well made products, dependable materials and minimalist design gives our products the ability to transcend trends, making them last longer than a single season.

Our founders, brothers Laurence and Adrian, come from a family that has been in the leather trading industry for over 45 years. This is why we understand the meaning of quality and strive to source only the highest spec full-grain leather. 

With a keen eye for design and a well established network within the industry, the brothers created Presence. The goal being to produce well-made quality leather goods, while remaining ethical and affordable. 

We have personally visited all of our suppliers. All our leather is sourced responsibly from gold star rated Leather Working Group (LWG) approved tanneries. These tanneries must meet strict environmental impact levels to ensure they are operating at a sustainable rate. 

The production of our goods is based in India. The men and women who handcraft our products work in regularly audited facilities that maintain a fair and safe working environment.
