Sun Nation is a small leather goods studio, designed and run by Lizzy Gladstone – most days it feels like a creative adventure machine.

Lizzy trained at a leatherwork atelier in Italy and brings this knowledge of detailed craftsmanship to each Sun Nation piece, merging luxury with bohemian elegance. Timeless yet playful, each design is imbued with a celebration of line and form. With a deep appreciation for detail and quality, every piece is made to order and created by hand.

Leather is an unusual and fascinating material. The life it had before as a living creature is imbued in it’s suppleness and resiliency. Every scar and insect bite is absorbed and reincarnated as the hide is transformed. No other material is as soft and strong, sturdy yet graceful. We constantly look for ways to highlight the amazing, natural qualities of this material.

Our designs are humble interpretations of the diverse and sublime beauty of the world around us, the tenacity of the human spirit, and most of all, the reckless courage of the heart.

Dedicated to sustainable and ethical business practices, Sun Nation is committed to making the world better than we found it . All of our leather is 100% vegetable-tanned and comes from USA tanneries. No heavy metals or toxic chemicals are used to make our leather and we use only non-toxic, water-based glues and dyes.
