How it all started
It all started… with a MacBook case. Or, with a MacBook without a case, to be more precise! Aleksandr (on the left) had purchased one back in 2017 and was on the lookout for a leather case, which would suit it. He searched online, trying to find an aesthetically pleasing case of great quality, but without luck. By chance he later came across Sergei, who at the time was running a small Denmark-based leather goods workshop. Sergei was offering handcrafted leather bags, wallets, and keychains, and one design in particular caught Aleksandr’s attention. He fell in love with the leather wallet with a unique geometrical pattern, and Sergei agreed to create a custom-made case based on it.
Almost four years the cherished and timeless case is an ever-reliable companion to Aleksandr. In those years Aleksandr, intrigued, kept following Sergei’s work, and there came a time when both decided - Sergei’s leather goods deserve to be seen and enjoyed worldwide. Aleksandr has taken it on himself to introduce the world with Sergei’s work, while Sergei continues to do what he loves and does best – to create unique, simple, affordable, and timeless leather goods and accessories.

At OCULT we value
- Fair price – because we are passionate about introducing more and more people to the high-quality products, which we make, and which will not need to be replaced once a new fad comes along. All our products have a simple design and high functionality – they differ substantially from products with many unfunctional, unneeded parts, which only make them wear and tear faster and go out of fashion. Which is why offering a reasonable price is so important for us – it is our passion and goal to have the sensible approach to fashion and its functionality spread wide and far.
- Timelessness – because each design piece is carefully crafted and is not designed to be at the mercy of constantly changing whims of fast fashion. OCULT leather goods will serve you faithfully for years and will never go out of fashion.
- Functionality – because we do not believe that looks are everything. We strive to create pieces that will serve you well in your everyday life and will never have you serve them.
- Simplicity – because in our designs we strive to uncover and ensure the perfection of simple styles which will never create visual clutter and get in the way of what matters.
- Longevity – because we want you to enjoy our goods in the long term. Ours are not products which you will have to rebuy each year – we create them to stay with you for as long as possible.
