About the brand

Lies Mertens is a young accessory label which grew out of the idea of combining efficiency and femininity in a sustainable way. We focus on high-quality materials, details and creative expression. 

We believe that functional design can and should be beautiful. As we only design a limited number of bags every year, we can really take our time to perfect them in terms of aesthetics and ease of use.

We do this as we believe that products should mainly make an impression by minimising their impact on the world. We therefore try to reduce our ecological footprint as much as possible, for example by working with leather which we tan without chemicals, instead using natural products such as resin. This leather is unique as it is 100% biodegradable. You will find more information about it on this page.

It is not just our materials which are of the highest quality, but also the conditions under which the bags are produced. All of our bags are designed in Antwerp and then handmade in Portugal.
