Shopping and Markets

Leather to wear, use and love.

Sunshine Barossa Australia’s studio and workshop are open to the public in the gorgeous town of Stockwell in the Barossa Valley is a must to see if you like to smell, touch and see stunning leather goodies which are available for purchase.

Sunshine Barossa was born in 2016 when owner, Carol Dadds, discovered a trunk filled with beautiful hides and leather working tools at her mother’s. Carol’s relationship with leather and hides, however, began much earlier in her life and goes back three generations. It began with her maternal grandmother, who worked as a tailor and creating leather handbags. Carol grew up on a horse stud and she has vivid memories of her father teaching her how to braid and plait leather strips used to make bridles, halters, and the like for the horses.

Not long after stumbling across the leather filled trunk, Carol had a casual but fortuitous conversation with a lady. Confided in her mutual passion for leather and commented that ‘to sew leather every day’ would be a dream come true. A design and a hide were given to this gifted lady, and a beautiful bespoke leather bag was created and from this bag, Sunshine Barossa Australia was born. This amazing friend and leather seamstress is with Sunshine Barossa Australia still to this day.
