About Us - Ombro Designers

OMBROTHE LEGACY

 
Ombro was started over 20 years ago by Micheal Lunjevich. Michael was a stone mason and marble statue artist by trade , he found the physical demands of working with stone strenuous and taxing on the body. Therefore he started working with leather and making handmade leather belts which lead him into designing his own range of leather wallets and grew the company from inception in his home country of New Zealand. Michael does events all over NZ, he has his own workshop in rural Northland, where he resides today. Ombro is a local and family business which has expanded into Australia where we operate markets in Southern Queensland and Northern New South Wales.
