About

I create Leather Bags and Accessories that carry dreams, ideas and stories. Designed and handmade by myself as one-of-a-kind in The Netherlands.

Put your childhood in a bag and play!
Surrounded by wood, water, greenery and all the extraordinary elements of industrial sites, I grew to love the interesting patterns that nature and construction had to offer. These elements have informed how I design today and the materials I use. The raw edges and floating shapes of my bags might resemble the hills, a stream or the clouds. This is my way of expressing the beauty of life when I cannot put it into words.

Frequently asked questions
How is the leather sourced?

Low emission is important for me, therefore I use mainly cow-hide from Europe, especially from the Bavarian Alpes in the south of Germany. The hides come from small farmers around that area, where cows stay on the Alms from spring till autumn.

What grade of leather do you use?

I use Full Grain cow-hide, which is high quality leather, the strongest and most durable part of the hide. The surface has not been sanded, buffed or snuffed, which means it displays the natural markings and grain characteristics. These are incorporated into my designs and therefore make every item unique.

What tanning agents are used?

For environmental and health reasons I use leather that is treated in Europe and under strict regulations. Semi Anilline tanning and Aniline / Vegetable tanning. The latter with valonea tanning agent and therefore chrome free and allergy friendly.
