OBBI GOOD LABEL headstore was officially opened in Singapore on the 3rd March 2011. The first leather concept store which offers a range of high quality leather products and also leather-crafting lessons.




The store now houses some different types of leather machineries which enable the artisans to produce more leather products and creating even more innovative designs. The artisans working under OBBI GOOD LABEL are highly-trained with the finest craftsmanship. They are some of the very best leather-craftsmen in Singapore. Armed with their leather-crafting skills and in-depth knowledge, they are the men behind your leather products which will last you a lifetime.

During the opening day, which was almost a full day event, there were some interesting programmes planned for those who are curious about how leather-crafts are made.
Three sessions of live demonstration was shown by Fabian, a senior craftsman. From cutting, shaping, hand-stitching to burnishing, Fabian not only work out the crafting, but also vividly explained during the whole process.




Another highly anticipated event was ‘Made it yourself Coin Pouch’. Participants were offered a chance to make their own leather coin pouch at the workshop’s crafting table. The event drew the most crowds and the crafting table never had an empty seat throughout the day.





All in all, it was a successful opening with local netizens meet-ups. It was a day where people talked about leather, discussed about denims, music, bikes and everything under the sun.

New Direction, New Style, New Concept 2011
Since opening of our OBBI GOOD LABEL headstore in Singapore, we have revamped our product styles. Aligning towards our ideas of providing what the people need.
It is a very important change and we believe we are the first brand to have such a concept.
These new product styles do not only benefit us but also to the public instantly.

After years of gathering feedbacks and comments from the internet, the people all over the world, we have learnt that,

- Quality products must be our utmost criteria
- Functionality of a product cannot be compromised
- Fashion style is a personal thing

From the points above, we can be sure that Quality and Functional leather products are already the key strengths for OBBI GOOD LABEL’s handmade leathercrafts. It is the last point that we need to satisfy - To cater for people of different fashion style. Providing people from all walks of life a chance to own a piece of leathercraft which will reflect their lifestyles.


After much discussion, we decided that we can group our leathercrafts into FOUR main categories, namely:

GENTLEMEN STYLE
As the name suggests, leathercrafts used by ‘gentlemen’,or rather, for men who are required to dress formally daily and for more dressy occasions. Smooth and slick leathercrafts with nothing elaborating, just classic designs.






NATIVE TRAVELLER STYLE
Most commonly known style in the world of denimheads. American vintage coin conchos, free-flowing tassles, hornpipe and colours beads are some trademark of this iconic style. We also venture through the ideas of creating new designs on this old style. To distinguish ourselves with the many leathercrafters, we have come out with some signature designs, which are only achievable by our craftsmen. Making sure that, from the first look, people will know it is from OBBI GOOD LABEL.

WORKWEAR STYLE
Thus far, workwear style leathercrafts have been neglected or rather overshadowed by other popular or well-accepted styles. At OBBI GOOD LABEL, workwear style has always been one of our most important categories. It has the type of design and look which brings out your personality to a higher level when used well.
Usually, simple and clean look, functionality is the key in this category. Because of their ease to use, it is almost guaranteed that they will be ‘used’ for a long time and hence, promising awesome aging looks.




Wallet Fit




CONTEMPORARY STYLE
A mixture of everything, belongs to nowhere, out-of-the-box design are what you can find here. It is probably one of most difficult in terms of designing, as the leathercrafts are often not made with conventional crafting techniques. Some great design leathercrafts may be pleasing to the eye but actually not user-friendly or they may cause some inconvenience when using.
However, OBBI GOOD LABEL’s leathercrafts placed under this category are all well-tested and positively feed backed and reviewed, not by ourselves, but by the people who owns them.
With the above, we proudly announce that all OBBI GOOD LABEL’s contemporary style leathercrafts have achieve unique designs and at the same time satisfy user-friendly requirements.




Apart from these FOUR main categories, we never forget that there are some special individuals who want something totally different from others, the ultimate ‘one-and-only’. To cater for that, we included the CUSTOMIZE category. People can discuss with us their requirements, the designs and we will materialize your dream.
Again, base on the comments of those who have work with us, we are often compliment due to our fast communication response, making the dreaded emailing discussions a walk in the park.
And up till today, all our customize leathercrafts are exactly want the customers have in mind.

Lastly, we will also release some LIMITED EDITION leathercrafts that are of premium status. Items made out of rare leathers or hardware, a design tribute to the designer, special promotional event leathercrafts….are some we have included. A lot of plans are already in the pipeline, this category will definitely be filled with excitement.


I hope I have explained each category clearly. Please continue to provide us with your valuable feedbacks and comments, we have never taken any honest review lightly for the past 3 years and it will always be so in the future.

We hope our new direction will provide more options for different people with different preferences.

Obbie's - Ladies Collection Coming Soon!

Finally, the first and ever handmade leather products for ladies is COMING REAL SOON!
Base on the recent popular concept of modern leathercraft, we have designed and made leather products for ladies.
How can we neglect about our lovely partners in life and deprive them from enjoying the smell of genuine leathers, the touch of the natural grains from leathers and the everlasting usefulness of our fine leather crafts.



From different sizes of purse to different design of handbags, we will have different colours for your feminine requirements. Ladies can now enjoy what have been a male dominated modern leather craft fashion, as well as sharing the same conversation with the guys about leathers.
Aging process will no longer be a 'Men's Talk' topic, this is coming true!



Stay tune, it is happening!

^Yes, nicol.
We use oil-tanned Pink leather for these ladies range. They are known to turn shiny and smooth after some use.
To be honest, it is the first time we are using this colour, we are interested to see its evo too :)

Could be the same nice evo just like dirtyjack's red leather!

A lot of combination in terms of colours.
Those colour we have right now are black, black/white, brown (the colour Scasi using for his hp case), all snake skin.

However, making a full snake skin hip pouch is near impossible...because one snake not big enough to make. It must be a combination of leather used, probably by using inlay method.
Meaning, full cowhide leather with snake skin as inlay.
Something like this,
