Astrid Rajalo Leather Design
The Astrid Rajalo Leather Design brand was established in 2009. We design and produce jewellery and accessories made of natural leather. We offer clients in search of novelty the opportunity to complement their wardrobe with an elegant or playful piece of jewellery or accessory. The geometric shape we use in creating our elements enables sensing the jewellery as a symbol.
Jewellery has carried a symbolic meaning for people from the beginning of times. A symbol is something that represents through its appearance or essence something considerably deeper and complex than itself. For instance, a circle represents perfection, eternity, protection, and unity. A square, on the other hand, stands for earthly possessions, creation, and order.
In a way, the work process resembles playing with Legos – it is fun and exciting. We fit leather pieces of different colours and surface textures inside each other and achieve a fresh and modern
outcome. We hope that by loving the creative process, our joy will transcend to the final product and can be sensed by its new owner.
Who we design for
A woman who is independent, self-executing and in search of novelty. She trusts her intuition and dears to follow it.
She is courageous, loves to travel and discover the world. She is constantly involved in broadening her horizons and is never bored. She enjoys both solitude as well as companionship. She loves reading books and enjoys theatre, music and beautiful architecture. She is ageless – when she is 25 she is considered mature for her age and when she is 65 no-one believes her age as she is eternally youthful and full of energy.
