Leather Design - Wellington
The Meniscus Leathergoods workroom is a triple treat, making costume props and armour for film and television clients, both based on shore and Internationally, manufacturing leather components for a wide range of designers and creating our own range of wearable leather accessories.
The process of our own Meniscus Leathergoods range is focused on enduring design. We employ traditional leatherworking methods using turn of the century sewing and splitting machines, hand tools and anvils. Along side the traditional, we embrace new technologies and like to mix old techniques with modern mechanics. We source premium raw materials from as close to home as possible and our small crew make every single piece by hand.
We are very proud to be a part of the International Film Industry. We make specialist armour, props, footwear and costumes for film, theatre and museums. Along the way we have honed our skills working on films as the Lord of the Rings, Avatar, The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe, King Kong, The Lovely Bones and and many more including the Hobbit series.
