The Good Winter vision is to bring you high quality leather accessories that are 100% New Zealand designed and created.


Our mission is to bring you functional design while creating world-class New Zealand leather goods. Good Winter is dedicated to finding innovative ways to decrease our carbon footprint while upholding traditional leather craftmanship - we source and create from local stockists with no exceptions. Dedicated to the art of leather, our now signature techniques are inspired and informed by a niche but luxurious craft worldwide.


We are a close-knit team based in Blockhouse Bay in Auckland. Jared Faasalele (Director/Head Designer) has been in the fashion industry for over ten years, helping to build Good Winter into a specialty leather brand nationally. Having studied and gained credentials in namely leather work, Faasalele fast became an immersed staple in his local fashion industry. The Good Winter team is always striving to learn new techniques and develop fresh products that meld modern style with the grand tradition of leather.   


'With a following that both excites and challenges us as creators, the Good Winter spirit tailors for a more mindful consumer'.
