Designing products is something I'm very passionate about. And because I’ve been making things on a sewing machine myself from an early age, choosing the sewing machine as my preferred tool seems only logical. I always design and make bags I would like to have myself. A leather bag is quite an investment, so it has to be perfect. For me perfect is stylish, modern and functional. Sometimes with a little twist, unique and of course of high quality so it will last a lifetime.
How it all began
At the beginning of 2016 I was looking for a new leather bag. It needed to be stylish, modern, minimal and functional at the same time. But the thing was, I just couldn’t find that perfect bag. So I made a bag myself. It was from that moment I fell in love with leather and the bag making process. Lots of friends and family started showing interest and enquiring for purchase, so I decided to take the plunge. I bought a machine specifically for sewing leather, opened an online store and put my products out there to the world.
My collection consists of essentials for everyday use that will last through years and trends. They are perfect for those who find beauty in simplicity. I don't make items in large-scale productions. You will always have a unique item. Is an item out of stock? It's always possible to order a new one. Keep in mind that it may vary a bit in color or texture.
My leather bags are proudly made in my design studio in Voorburg, the Netherlands. I design and craft my bags with a lot of attention and care, with a strong focus on materials, quality, style and functionality. Would you like to see an item first?
