What you'll do
You will arrive at our atelier (studio) where we will get acquainted over some local tea/ coffee and pastries. You will also receive a quick tour of our space and the tools/ equipment we use. You will choose from all of our available colors of leather, thread, and edge paint to make your cardholder exactly how you want! You will also have the option to monogram it with any name, phrase, or set of initials you like. I will be right there guiding you through the entire experience myself, and you will be able to go home with your one-of-a-kind piece at the end! To see a bit more of the type of work our brand does, check us out on Instagram at @chezlajoie .

I am the founder of Lajoie, a high-end leather accessories brand who specializes in bespoke and custom pieces. Our work has been featured in magazines, museums, and sold around the world. In my past life I was a financial planner in Ontario, and in my spare time I am learning new languages, running, and sampling the never- disappointing selection of restaurants in and around the city.
