Freedom of Movement (FOM) is a South African leather goods/ lifestyle brand started by two brothers who saw the opportunity to make something on home soil that they were passionate about. FOM specialises in the design and manufacturing of bespoke leather products, clothing and accessories.

FOM was founded in South Africa in 2013 by two brothers with a shared passion for design and entrepreneurship. FOM’s own highly skilled, local artisans design and handcraft their products in a factory in South Africa.

The methods used for making all products is based on the traditional principles of leather craftsmanship, utilising the same tools that have been used to create leather goods for decades (no robots just hands).
