Property of... is a collection of men's bags & accessories that was launched in Autumn 2006 by cafe owners & design collaborators Peter Teo & Richard Chamberlain.
The brand name 'Property of...' was crafted to refer to the identity of the product owner rather than to a designer. This is reinforced through our signature 'Identity Tag' labelling and further highlighted by 'Names & Faces' ID visuals.
The collection was conceived in cafes over many cups of coffee and further developed around the simple idea of creating useful, well-made and considered products that reflect the designers interest in a clean function led design aesthetic.
Whilst appreciating and being informed by the construction and function of classic men's bag and accessories, the Property of.. team endeavors to create its own design identity incorporating the best of old and new design values. Bags and small goods are formed to be practical and reliable whilst reflecting modern needs and use with pockets, details and hardware placed and sized accordingly.
Our products are formed using traditional hard-wearing materials such as waxcloth & vegetable tanned leather which are used alongside contemporary coated tarpaulins and distressed canvas.
The brand's small creative team is based from their design studio & workshop in Singapore.
