Tour the studios of Lois Hazel and Simétrie and learn how to make a leather tassel using both the brands left over materials, with a glass of vino in hand.

Simétrie is a brand of minimalist bag designs, handcrafted in Melbourne by the founder and a few local makers. The brand ethos is built on the human desire for style, sustainable fashion, fair work wages and workshops that empower consumers to create their own editions of the ready-made wares.
The Brunswick based workshops aim to educate consumers on the creative and production processes of hand-craftsmanship, and encourage the shift away from fast fashion.
