Bisonte was established in 1980, primarily wholesaling hand-crafted leather jackets to boutiques and large retailers around Australia. As the company developed so did its design ethos for wearable, trans-seasonal styles that enjoy longevity. Backed by the quality workmanship of our tailors made in our South Yarra workshop.
Bisonte opened its first retail store in 1993 in Chapel Street, South Yarra. We still have a store in Chapel Street today. Bisonte takes pride in its loyal return customers who quite often return with much loved bags, jackets and wallets they can't part with. Bisonte looks forward to continuing to manufacture here in Melbourne, a fact valued by customers here and from overseas. Over the years we have diversified into bags and wallets for men and women, as well as bespoke hand-crafted pieces and limited runs.
The driving force behind Bisonte remains strong and committed to moving forward and promoting the brand through the web and wholesale outlets.
That person is Eric Wolfe, the founder and creative director of Bisonte.
