Those bags that are made in the Netherlands are only made when an order has been placed. Bags that are made in Italy, are made in a very limited quantities. Our final sale collections are given away to family and friends as gifts. some are been saved for our future archive room.
We strive to use natural, vegetable tanned leather. Leather that are left untreated, best quality for minimal environmental impact and with a pure, natural, unique finish wich feature variations in tone, texture and occasional markings. These are not defects but rather enhance the character of each individual bag. It will create its own remarkable story. For our collection that are made in The Netherlands, we purchase surplus leather from top class leather tanners in the Netherlands that will be throw away or burn. we gave them a second life. also our leather that we buy in Italy for our collection that is made in Italy, we buy we purchase surplus leather from top class workshops in Italy. we also collaborated with a small independent family-run tannery Myryam Tannery.
