The trend of having your initials emblazoned on your favourite leather goods isn’t new – in fact, if you rewind back over 200 years, it was customary for the French to have their initials on their trunks, whereas in the UK, they had the owner’s first and last name in full. Was it elegant? You bet. Is it practical in today’s context where we prefer lightweight suitcases that aren’t made out of leather? Nope. But, that’s where local leather goods label Luxemono comes in – they combine the elegance of monogram personalisation with everyday leather goods that we use.

 

 

Founded in 2016, Winnie Lim founded Luxemono to bridge a gap in the market for people who hankered for personalised goods at affordable price points. Two years later, prices are still kept affordable with prices starting at $39 for a luggage tag to $149 for a camera bag, all in durable Saffiano leather sourced from Hong Kong. The leather is known for being scratch resistant and easy to clean. All you need is to wipe it down with a damp cloth.

 

The brand also now offers chroma monogramming with up to 18 colours. Opt for your monogram to be in one colour with a different coloured shadow for a 3D effect.

 

But like every brand that has to evolve to cater to the needs of its customers, not only can you add your initials or name (up to four letters) for free in four different colours (black, gold, silver or rose gold), you can now also add emoticons like heart, smileys and dollar signs. Or if you want to one-up the rest, you can custom monogram your bag by sending in a scan of your signature to them at a flat rate of $50. Now that's service.
