About YU MEI
Yu Mei is a new-generation leather goods label with a focus on utilitarian design.
Based in Wellington, New Zealand, Yu Mei is made for modern people who favour understated markers of luxury.
Yu Mei stocks at discerning retailers including David Jones across Australasia and on Farfetch and at Bergdorf Goodman internationally.
Materiality and regeneration come first for Yu Mei. Yu Mei bags are predominantly made from premium, New Zealand-farmed deer nappa.
Prized for its suppleness and strength, this leather is a by-product of the venison industry and would otherwise go to landfill. Yu Mei is proud to use this regenerative material that has both a low ecological footprint and unparalleled softness. It is produced locally in Timaru, by experts that have honed their craft over the past 40 years to achieve the buttery soft texture of the deer nappa Yu Mei uses. Due to the nature of this natural product, wrinkles and blemishes can feature and should be regarded as hallmarks of premium quality.
Cared for, your Yu Mei bag should last you decades, if not a lifetime.
As part of the brand's commitment to sustainability and circularity, Yu Mei offers a full Refurbishment Service and also a Buy Back initiative. These two options bring additional value and make choosing a Yu Mei bag a sound investment.
