Rustic Wren is all about the written word wrapped up in leather. 

Welcome to the home of Rustic Wren, modern leather products with a touch of rustic. 

Each and every product in our range is designed and handcrafted in the Adelaide Hills town of Lenswood, South Australia. We pride ourselves with keeping it all within Australia. We source 98% of our leather from Australian tanneries, who source their leather from Australian cattle farms. 

We hand select each piece personally for each product to ensure its beauty. 

The leather we use is Full Grain, what does this mean? In the leather industry this is the cream of the crop, it is rich in character and is the best leather you can get. Other leathers like Top Grain or Genuine leather have layers shaved off to give the leather a more uniform look, even patterns are stamped onto the leather to give it a natural look. We love the natural markings that come with Full Grain leather, there are growth lines and scars over the leather giving it character and a rustic feel. 

Rustic Wren products are designed by Jess, with a background in interior and building design, she uses her expert design skills to create timeless and elegant leather pieces with a hint of rustic-ness. 

The colour palette is inspired by her love of nature and the landscape. With each product named after bird life that are seen around the Adelaide hills. 

Most of our products are made at the time of order, this allows you to get something perfect, this does add a making time to the delivery, otherwise check out the SHOP tab if you are after something that is all ready to go.

On top of this we offer Custom Made, so if you are after something unique send us an email and we can see what we can do. Please provide us with as much info as possible. 

We absolutely love creating leather products for you to enjoy.

Jess has always been a lover of stationery and in 2016 she fell head over heels  for a leather travelers notebook, it was love at first sight. She knew she needed one asap and couldn't wait for her order to arrive from the US. So took it upon herself to source the leather and tools locally to make her own.

She created a handful to start with and that is all it took for the love affair to begin. 

Realising she wasn't the only one with this love of notebooks and Rustic Wren was born. She has mastered her leathercraft skills and her designs and attention to detail have developed over the years.

Jump forward to now and the Rustc Wren range has grown to an extensive range of leather products for all your stationery needs.

Jess is even more particular with the style and quality of each item and they are still handcrafted with love in the Adelaide Hills studio.
