Howzit, I'm Jodi Leza

Jodi Leza Thurtell

Sustainable fashion designer

Four years ago I had an epiphany that brought me to LEZA. A dream of making weird and wonderful things with my own two hands, tapping into my family’s legacy of of innovation and recycling.

I didn’t realise it until I started in earnest but sewing is an innate skill I inherited from my grandmothers, while reimagining lost, forgotten or discarded things into treasured possessions is a gift I learned from my mother. The perseverance and dedication to my craft and adoration and respect for nature is something I was taught by my father and grandfather, and so I am the sum of many parts.

Fast fashion is a dark and destructive product of our generation. Textile waste generated by industry is a huge problem across the world and I hope to be a part of the solution in my own, small but steady way.

By recycling textile waste into one-off pieces you will love for years to come.

In a world consumed by mass production, owning something handmade with intention that is a true original is a special thing.

I invite you to ‘Find the One That Speaks to You.’
