1uv Designs

1uv Designs takes original paintings and pairs them with high quality Italian vegetable tanned leathers to make unique, one of a kind bags. All of our bags are handmade in Toronto.

1uv began with 3 partners: Scott, his wife Sofia, and Scott’s brother Kent. Scott always wanted to work with Kent, an artist since youth. Scott and Sofia had the idea of using Kent’s paintings to create unique bags as a way of sharing Kent’s art with the world.

Together they found Frank Sorichetti, a leather artisan in north Toronto with a family history of leather crafting. He perfected his bag making craft from an apprentice at Hermès. Frank brings his design ideas and skills to 1uv Designs.

1uv Designs launched in October 2015 and has garnered widespread acclaim being featured in Novella Magazine, The Globe and Mail, The Toronto Guardian, and on Your Morning. 1uv donates a portion of every sale to the Canadian Woman’s Foundation.
