East London

Hello! I’m Nadim; designer/maker of minimalist leather goods. My journey with godi started in 2014 with a vision to create Timeless yet Modern leather pieces with Minimalism at the heart.

In 2019, I officially launched my first collection after leaving my full-time career as an Occupational Psychologist.

My designs are inspired by elements of Modern Architecture and Positive Psychology with an intention to bring a sense of Joy and Peace through my pieces.

The story behind godi.
Meet Nadim Saleh

Tired of overcomplicating things? So was I. The last thing we need to complicate is our wallet or bag.

I started godi. with the intention to really simplify our everyday essentials. Luckily – I was born into a family of Leatherworkers and Tailors (Dad & Mum) - so I guess 'making' was in my blood. I quickly learnt my way around sewing which really helped with everything I do today.

Each of my pieces are made in my studios where I maintain an element of minimal machine work and strive for immaculate craftsmanship above anything else.

I only use Full Grain Cow Leather. This top tier leather is known for its durability and longevity. I’m entirely zero-waste where every part of the leather is used.

My hides are also dyed in house to create a unique colour story inspired by Positive Psychology and my personal journey with colour.


Love, Nadim Saleh
