For the love of leather

Nestled in the heart of central Auckland, a melting pot of skilled, industry-trained leather craftsmen and women work to bring the Deadly Ponies vision to life. The supple and distinctive handle of the leather allows our handbags to mold to your body, beautifully marrying form and function. Our exceptional materials are fundamental to our design ethos. Crafted from ethically sourced, New Zealand leathers and adorned with 100% brass hardware, our bags speak through their tactility and social consciousness. Our most renowned leather, Deer Nappa, is grown by New Zealand’s very best farmers, on the most pristine natural pastures you will find anywhere in the world. The stewardship of our farmers strengthens our reputation for producing handbags of the highest quality. It also provides for unique and authentic stories of origin, as we work closely with New Zealand’s deer farmers to uphold the reputation of our brand. Exceptional quality, tactile and unique, our materials have and will always sit at the heart of our beloved product.
