About DiPell

We are a Melbourne family company with over 40 years experience working leather, we also like to cycle. From cruising down to the cafe or shops or restoring old classics, we love bikes and everything cycling offers.

We created our products because we knew that we could make something better than we had been using. We love carbon fibre, but we also love steel, titanium and aluminium! We are not just about lycra and racing, but just riding your bike, so we developed a range of products that are suitable for all of our rides.

Our story began over forty years ago when Silvio and his 3 brothers arrived in Melbourne from Italy with a dream to start their own leather production business. Using their skills in leather craftsmanship, the four brothers established a highly successful business, manufacturing high quality leather products for many industries including footwear, textiles, furniture, craft and sports.

The family business has been operating continuously since 1967 but with a new generation in the business came a new direction in leather craftsmanship. Though, we still to this day, supply the local Australian footwear industry, including Australia’s most famous and iconic boot makers, R.M. Williams.

We are proud to be Australian and that we produce our products right here in Melbourne from Australian leather. Where all manufacturing seems to be going to Asia, we are doing our best not to lose the skills that have been handed down through the generations by Keeping it Local!

We live and breathe cycling and our products are a result of this passion. They are for anyone who enjoys the freedom of riding a bike – we don’t discriminate.
