Ben Thompson is the master craftsman behind the Australian leather accessories label, Charlie Middleton. An accomplished independent Australian designer, Ben combines a wealth of experience with a love of making things to create custom leather accessories that flawlessly integrate into any existing wardrobe.
Understated, functional and timeless, Charlie Middleton mixes the highest quality of materials and techniques to develop limited run and bespoke pieces
that stand the test of time.
Proudly Australian owned and operated, each Charlie Middleton item is handmade by Ben and Margaux in their Bondi workshop.
We have two retail stores in Bondi, and the Sydney CBD, and also wholesale to a limited number of boutiques arounds Australia, and if you are a good fit for our products we would be happy to discuss your store becoming a stockist.
(We unfortunately do not make products other than our own, but if you are looking for someone to make something for you, a google search of "leather makers Sydney" will bring up a couple of businesses like Emilio Leather goods who are makers we highly recommend).
