ABOUT US

FOUNDED IN 2008, STONE FOR GOLD HAS BEEN CREATING THE FINEST PRODUCTS — EXQUISITELY AND WHOLLY HANDCRAFTED FROM LEATHER. OUR CRAFTSMEN'S PASSION FOR LEATHER MANIPULATION AND FASHION ACCESSORIES HAS LED TO THE ENDURING HIGH QUALITY AND DISTINCTIVE DESIGNS THAT ARE UNIQUELY STONE FOR GOLD.

Using carefully researched techniques and tools to hand make leather, Stone for Gold forges the soft strength of leather into solid goods, creating bespoke goods and limited edition accessories upon request – including wallets, pouches, bags and belts. Short of what the artisans from Scandicci and Florence have at disposal, the quality of leathers and exotic skins offered by this artisanal brand are unmatched in the local industry. Stone for Gold seeks a comprehensive and uncompromising range of materials around the world and continues to push the standards in bespoke craftsmanship, seeking out the best skins and materials to perfect each piece.
 
Handcrafted Pride

"By doing what you love, you inspire and awaken the hearts of others."
 
 

 

  
Xie Hui (Stone)
Founder and Creative Director
 
 
What started as a obsessive pasttime in the bedroom and store room of his home, has led to a fast growing brand that is now based in a work space in a shophouse. Drawing its initial influences from Tribal Punk and Steampunk, which is a sub-genre of science that features futuristic inventions originating from the 19th century, Stone has a vision — for Stone for Gold to evolve into a lifestyle name inspired by the latest in fashion, architecture and design whilst delving into bolder concepts like Native American Indian influences. The aim is to produce handcrafted accessories that bear the brazen aesthetics and refined workmanship easily distinguishable to the brand.
