In her teenage years, Leah Carter’s desire was to sit alongside her mother at the old Singer sewing machine and design her own clothes and swimwear. This eventually led her to create her own leather and suede clothing designs and lycra swimwear for others to enjoy. Her keen interest later led her to set up stalls in market areas around the Sunshine Coast and at shows and festivals in Queensland. The positive customer feedback and healthy sales was the first stepping-stone on the road to her business success. Leah’s ability to capture the style and design that was sort after by local customers has set her apart for over twenty years, both as a stall holder, and in the last ten years, as a savvybusiness owner based in Darwin.
Leah’s business has grown out of knowing her customer’s needs and providing excellent customer service. This has led her to create her own fashion line as well as market her popular buffalo leather sandals that everyone is in love with. Leah’s sandals are sold and distributed all over the world from international travellers who visit Darwin. The buffalo sandals are easily recognizable and offer a unique style that are both comfortable and durable which stand out from the mainstream trends. The durability of these sandals is amazing and they last for many years, which as a result, offer customer affordability. Not only are Leah’s customers in Darwin enjoying the benefits, but her online customers across Australia are finding it is their one stop shop time and time again.
