About Us

We want to lead a movement. Ambitious, we know.

We can’t just sit and watch while the world continues to glorify leather. Millions of animals are tortured and killed every year for their skins. The tanning process - which stops hides from biodegrading - is highly toxic to workers, causing cancer, respiratory illnesses and premature death. The leather industry is one of the most polluting in the world. In short, it’s bad for animals, people and the environment.

We can do better.

Our team

Caroline

The impulsive & passionate founder

Having worked in Supply Chain for most of her career, it was her passion for animal welfare combined with a can-do attitude that initially led Caroline to venture into fashion and create No Saints.

Caroline is Brazilian, but has called Australia home since 2014. She loves the simple things in life, like comfort food and cuddly dogs, and is immensely passionate about growing No Saints to make a positive impact on the world.

Johan

The creative partner & co-founder

Coming from a Finance background and having completed his Masters at Oxford, Johan is seriously smart and business savvy.

He’s been in Australia for 18 years but hasn’t lost his charming South African accent. His hobbies include singing (poorly) and googling any unusual symptoms he may have, which results in highly exaggerated self-diagnoses.

Anouk

The strategic marketing genius & all round inspiration

Anouk has a seriously impressive CV, which includes companies such as Louis Vuitton and Condé Nast. She’s smart, creative and has an amazing sense of style.

Anouk is Australian, but has been a world citizen throughout her life. She has 3 adorable daughters, 2 lovely dogs and a hilarious husband, all of whom occasionally drop by during our meetings and make it all the more fun.

Our values

WE GIVE A F*CK

We make high quality products in the most ethical way. We believe you can run a business without causing harm to other beings and the planet.

WE'RE DOERS

We fight for what we care about and we want you to join us! Instead of complaining and wishing the world was a better place, we try and make it happen.

WE'RE HUMAN

We strive to do our best, but we’re far from perfect. You won’t get judgement here – we just want to make it easier for you to do good and feel good.

Our story

The seeds for No Saints were planted in mid 2018, when founder Caroline was frustrated with the (lack of) non leather options for accessories, and shoes in particular. Rather than sit and wait a few years until more brands started taking notice of the demand, she thought it was a challenge worth taking on. All of a sudden, the possibility of making a real difference became all Caroline thought about and she knew she had found her passion.

She was scared as hell, but also ridiculously excited to jump head first into this project. Impulsive as always, she went against everyone’s advice and gave her employer notice a few days later and proceeded to work on No Saints in every spare minute. As challenging as the journey has been, she has never looked back (she would also like to point out she feels pretty weird talking about herself in the 3rd person).

Johan was excited from the very beginning and has been bringing new ideas to the table, acting as a sounding board and passionately talking about No Saints to anyone who will hear him ever since.

Johan and Caroline met with Anouk early on for advice and ended up leaving with much more: an energetic new business partner who loves what No Saints is about. She’s probably one of the busiest people we know, but is always putting in the time to help us grow.
