Raku Collection is a Bondi based leather lifestyle label, focusing on clean contemporary lines. The importance of quality, craftsmanship and attention to detail resonates deeply at the core of Raku’s philosophy.
With a street style sensibility and signature clean silhouette’s, the collection of handbags, travel bags and accessories are designed with form and function in mind, offering understated elegance and comfort.
Founded in 2014 by friends Nicole Holmes and Renée Russell, it all began searching for the perfect leather travel bag. Struggling to find a piece that was chic, high quality but affordable, they were inspired to design Raku’s signature weekender, an accessible luxury leather weekender bag.
Raku means “enjoyment”, “comfort” or “ease”; Raku ware; is a type of Japanese pottery, traditionally characterised by being hand molded, which results in each piece being ‘one-of-a-kind’.
Impeccably crafted from the finest leather, characteristics of the natural material (the colour and grain variations) are individual to each one of our items, giving each piece it’s own personality.
