Maune Stephanie’s clientele marvel at her one-of-a- kind leather wearable art pieces. A self-taught artist who creates unique leather handbags and accessories, Maune Stephanie began designing for herself and her friends while still in high school. She travels coast to coast as a featured artist in some of the top U.S. art festivals.
My leather work is organic - it's "GREEN". I break down and recycle every cut of leather and turn it into some form of art. No piece is duplicated. Individuality and unique design is the basis of my work."
Maune Stephanie brought her first line of leather handbags and accessories to Detroit several years ago. "SKIN TIGHT" was well received because of the spectrum of style in Detroit. Maune Stephanie says, "Detroiters embrace FUNKY fashion and wearable art. Detroit is an artist’s infinite dream of creative combustion."
