Building Block is a Los Angeles-based design studio, best known for their timeless, well-crafted accessories. Their ethos is to magnify the essential while omitting the excessive. A playful touch is intrinsic to their designs, which make use of unexpected materials and whimsical accents. These principles become clear upon viewing their pieces, which all boast a streamlined sensibility while feeling remarkably fresh. We love their reimagining of everyday accessories through the playful use of elemental materials and forms. All of their line is all handmade in a workshop in Taipei, Taiwan that is run by two generations of brothers. The family-owned business is made up of 7 craftsmen and women who have collectively been working with leather handbags for over 30 years.
