This Homegrown Brand Creates Minimalist Leather Bags
Marked is your go-to for classic leather pieces.
(SPOT.ph) A well-chosen leather accessory can instantly elevate any look. This is something that Mark Ngo understands wholeheartedly, and one of the reasons why he became interested in working with leather. In 2017, after taking a leather-crafting course at the School of Fashion and the Arts, he founded the local leather-goods brand Marked, which specializes in creating minimalist made-to-order leather bags inspired by Scandinavian design.
Ngo, who works full-time as a creative director at an advertising agency, admits that the business of leather goods has its share of struggles, especially when it comes to juggling Marked with his day job. He only has time to work on Marked’s bag orders when he gets home by night, working even up to the early hours of the morning. But it is his passion for leather that inspires him to keep going on to create covetable leather goods.
