OUR STORY – ABOUT STUGA
Our objective at Stuga, “stooga”, or “cottage” in Swedish, is to simplify and enhance daily life. We achieve this by designing and handcrafting bespoke leather and woodwork pieces, along with artisan remedies. We take inspiration from our Scandinavian ancestors; focusing on design and form. We place great emphasis on focusing on the fine details.
Our bespoke leather pieces designs come from the question of “How do we make life easier?”. We pick the highest grade premium local leathers, that are the lightest, the strongest and the most desirable. All sourced from local artisan Australian tanneries who know their craft. When you work with the best materials possible, then their is no concern for compromise.
When it comes to grooming, We look to inspiration to the art of traditional grooming and inject a modern twist. We’ve sourced the finest materials and raw ingredients to create and design products that provide you with a simple and effective grooming ritual. Hand turned authentic badger bristle shaving brushes, artisan timber shaving brushes, hand poured shaving soaps and hand blended beard oils & beard balms are some of the Stuga grooming staples found in our clients grooming stations.
Good practical design, will become a timeless, classic design.
