Where does your leather come from?

Where are your products made?

All our products are designed and handcrafted by Jess and our local team in the Adelaide Hills studio. We pride ourselves that everything is made in house and not imported from overseas.

Do you actually make the menus?

YES! All of our menus are designed and handmade in our studio located in the Adelaide Hills, South Australia.

How do I clean my menus?

Please make sure you do not use any cleaning products or sprays on these. We recommend using a damp cloth with warm, soapy water - wipe over the surface and allow it to dry completely on a flat surface out of direct sunlight. This works best, and helps keep your menus looking fresh.
