From a young age I have been fascinated by leather. Back then, horses were the most important thing in my life. Through daily maintenance of the saddle and bridle I learned early on how to treat leather with love. The smell of leather still reminds me of my happy childhood among horses.
After my study architecture at the art academy, the fascination for leather and the love for architecture came together in a 3-year course of traditional shoemaking. From there I slowly rolled into the bag making profession. Since 2019 I am officially a qualified bag maker.

The collection consists of leather bags and accessories. Minimalistic designs with clear shapes and elegant color combinations. The use of as little visible hardware and decoration as possible unless they are part of the concept. I like to combine contemporary designs with traditional techniques. Always looking for the harmony between contrasts in color, structure and material. The products from the collection are made of carefully selected genuine leather from Italy. Every piece of leather will be used, nothing is wasted out of respect for the material. Leather is a precious and natural material and should be treated with love.

All products are designed and handmade by myself in my studio in Groningen, in the north of the Netherlands. The linings have a signature print of an abstracted wrinkle pattern. These linings are screen-printed by hand in my studio. To maintain sustainability, I do not work with fast seasonal collections. Throughout the year new designs or colors are added to the ever-growing collection.
