Truso's ethos is 'to sustainably source and to ethically create' with our leathers sourced locally as certified bi product and remnants from upholsterers. Everything seen in our store is hand crafted by designer Liz from our Melbourne studio ensure a quality finish and a lifetime guarantee on workmanship.
Truso evolved in 2008 after many years of making and selling handbags from cotton fabrics. A move away from soft textiles to leather was made to focus on longevity in a product and further design possibilities with the more rigid material.
The name 'Truso' is a phonetic version of 'trousseaux'- the French word for a women's wedding possessions which was taken from 'Trousseaux Treasures' - the name of the women's lingerie label Liz's grandfather owned and operated out of Sydney in the 1950/60's.
