Designed in Melbourne | Made in Melbourne
The Johnston & Green fine leathergoods range is designed and made in Melbourne, Australia. Each piece in the collection is individually handmade with fine craftsmanship and strong attention to detail. The collection includes Johnston’s signature envelope clutch bags, Florence and Maddie shoulder bags, cosmetic bags, glasses cases, ipad and iphone covers, and other holdalls which are perfect for jewellery, cufflinks, ipods and golf tees and accessories, shopping totes. There are also beautiful open leather dishes which are perfect for home and office, and other accessories for the keen golfer.
Melbourne based Caroline Johnston is the designer and maker, following her love for leather and textiles after a career as a lawyer, consultant and senior executive. Her designs have won many fans since being launched in Melbourne in December 2012, with buyers finding they are appealing to look at and very practical to use.
There is a creative flair that runs in the family with her father’s cousins – Florence and Kathleen Martin – being well known painters and costume designers in the 1940s, 50’s and 60’s, best known for their work with the Ballet Russes and the New York Ballet, and joint and solo art exhibitions in London, New York and Melbourne. The Martin sisters were featured in the Ballet Russes exhibition at the National Gallery of Australia in Canberra in 2011, and various of their works are held there also.
