design your own companion

L’atelier by paper republic gives you the opportunity to request your very own customised leather companion and gives you access to limited-release items.

Whether you want a leather portfolio with extra pockets, a square wallet with five colours, a pen-case with a unique thread, a leather journal in a custom size or an entirely customised leather piece:

if you can dream it, we can craft it.

it's a unique journey

Each l'atelier custom request is special to us and no two pieces are ever made in the same exact way. From the moment we get your request, it marks the beginning of a new journey and the end result is a once-off, hand made piece.

Seeing our customers get what they want makes us happy.

custom product service

a step above the normal

l'atelier custom pieces are special: an entire team will work on your request and craft it to completion.

Your unique item will be a signature edition, with a personalised thank you card and photograph of the leather expert who signed off on the final product.

It will then be shipped to you in a special l'atelier wrapped package.

We believe in slow production

L’atelier is our response to today’s fast-paced world, where mass production is the norm and goods are made to have a short lifespan.

We want to avoid overproduction and unnecessary stock by only producing the right quantity and on demand.
