About Us

How We Started

We started onlyBrown because we were frustrated with the lack of different styles in men's leather accessories. For a long time, most leather goods were only available in black, and we thought men deserved more choices. So, in 2011, we created onlyBrown on sunny island Singapore.

In the early days, we started by selling leather belts online to match the growing interest in well-made shoes. Over the years, we've kept up with trends and expanded our collection to include various small leather goods, bags, briefcases and accessories.

Our Ethos

Our name shows our love for brown leather, but that's not all we care about.

We search for lesser-known brands that have been making leather goods for a long time. We visit their workshops to see how things are made. These brands mean a lot to us because they have a strong history or story, and we share beliefs in great craftsmanship and paying attention to details.

Our leather goods and accessories are practical, timeless and designed to last.

We work with artisans from countries with a rich history of leather-making and craftsmanship, like Japan, United Kingdom and Spain.

Our Hope

In our journey to bring you well-crafted products that last, we want to be kinder to the environment too.

Besides advocating the use of natural, durable and sustainable materials like leather, we have also adopted a pre-order model. Most of the products on our website are available via pre-order basis. This way, we can offer a wider range of products while staying lean as a business and sustainable with lower inventory and less wastage. 

We hope you enjoy our collection as much as we enjoy putting it together for you.
