Rosa Halpern is the founder and designer behind Namesake, a custom leather company based in Toronto. Rosa founded Namesake in 2015, aiming to create an atelier focused on the versatility, durability and craftsmanship of the leather jacket. Namesake offers a range of exquisitely designed, high quality, bespoke leather jackets, available at accessible prices, all of which can be customized to suit the wearers every need. Every jacket in the Namesake collection has been assigned a name. Rosa’s idea is to create a dynamic between the style of the jacket and the symbolic power of strong, culturally significant women. Named after two influential women herself—Rosa Parks and Rosa Luxembourg— Rosa has always been intrigued by the symbolic power of a name. By naming each piece after a historically significant woman, she hopes that the wearers will be inspired by the strength, creativity, and unique style of the strong women of yesterday, today, and tomorrow.
In May 2017 Rosa and her partner, Ryan, adopted Rafa. Rafa was rescued from Egypt through Save Our Scruff. Rafa has brought endless joy to Rosa, the entire Namesake Team, and countless customers, as a resident studio pup!
