FLE CH R is pronounced Fletcher...by Kimberly Fletcher. Nice to meet you!
Overproduction in fashion is one of the worlds biggest enviromental threats. Our workshop refuse to make that problem worse and believe in making only what is needed. Unlike many fast fashion brands, we create our inhouse collections in small batches, with the aim of selling out. This practice reduces waste and ensures our pieces are made thoughtfully, with appropriate time and care.
Sustainable leather goods, made by hand from locally sources materials in Tiohtià:ke, Montréal-Canada.
Mastering the art of Leather Goods
"We believe that a great bag should last longer than one season. That it should be passed on from one generation to the next. This is why we strive to make beautiful, high quality leather goods with noble materials and remarkable finishing touches." Kimberly, designer.
With a Montreal and London background in Fashion design, Shoemaking and leather-working, Kimberly Fletcher has been in the fashion industry for over 10 years. Getting her start designing and producing for other designers, she is now ready to concentrate on her own line. Today the brand is continuously gaining momentum, and is featured in a variety of select boutiques.
The nobility of a raw material
At FLE CH R, we take great pride of selecting every skins carefully. We really enjoy working with different styles, Suede, Smooth & the Pebble leather, for their different aspect and particularity. We love our locally sources Pebble leather for its soft-rich-grained-texture and our Smooth leather for its classic and refined look.
