Self taught in leather-craft, Tovi started out selling larger jewellery pieces in East London boutiques until his early, unorthodox experimentations with printed tech cases became an online success overnight. A decade on, his unique technique produces some of the finest printed leather in the world – rich, durable, high-definition prints that celebrate the natural tactility of leather.
Today Tovi designs with his partner, Agnes Davis, who takes care of the sales and marketing aspects of the business. With a love of both contemporary and classical imagery, their collections are inspired by wild nature, and a desire to imbue digital print with the energy and integrity of traditional craft techniques. They are supported by a wide following of international customers who return time and again for beautiful, statement pieces. Featured widely in the press, their work has also been commissioned by the likes of The Royal Academy and the Rijksmuseum.
The majority of the brand’s products, from tech cases to totes, are hand-crafted by Tovi in their Bristol-based studio, on his trusty hand-turned Singer sewing machine. To meet an ever-growing demand, Tovi and Agnes have also begun to work with some wonderful Spanish manufactures, who have generations of leatherwork experience and a warm, collaborative ethos.
The Tovi Sorga brand is passionately committed to environmental sustainability. We only use leathers that are recycled as a waste product of the food industry, sourced from trusted British and European suppliers who meet strict European standards of animal and worker welfare. No business is conducted with companies that destroy rainforests to create grazing land.
Wherever possible our packaging - from luxurious embossed box to mailing bag - is recycled, biodegradable and sourced from local British manufacturers. Our tech cases employ state of the art micro-suction technology to make them 90% biodegradable, and in all our processes we strive to eliminate waste and toxicity so that in generations to come our products will return to nature as kindly as they emerged from it.
