ELIZA PARTI is a Charleston based leather collection started to bring more pizzazz to your daily life. We believe in classic shapes with a bit of quirk, and the idea that beautiful objects do not need to be so serious. Each piece is designed and hand-crafted to stand the test of time. Our process is the embodiment of "slow made" - from start to finish, our products are completely created by hand with traditional leather-making techniques. We use only the best materials, including vegetable tanned leather, solid brass hardware and water based paints. Over time, vegetable tanned leather becomes more supple and patinas with age, making each object even more beautiful and more unique. Non-toxic, water based paints are used to embellish our designs, and each painting is one of a kind.
ELIZA PARTI was founded by Beth Martin. Trained as an architect, she believes in pushing the limits of the expectations associated with the built environment. Whether designing a home on a unique site, creating immersive retail experiences or producing window displays for some of the most notable fashion houses in the world, Beth has spent her career thinking beyond the typical standards of design. She was drawn to the ancient art of leather-working due to its ability to be a functional art that can elevate the everyday.
Where did that name come from, you ask? Eliza comes from Beth's first name (Elizabeth), and Parti is an architectural term that means the essence of a design. I have brought together all of my years of making and designing to create this fun and vibrant brand. Hope you enjoy!
