About the brand

Brands should try to make a positive impact on the world. That’s why we exclusively work with bio calf leather, which consists of all-natural products that don’t harm the environment.
We also highly value a safe work environment and fair wages for all our partners. Our bags therefore are designed in Antwerp and handmade in Portugal, produced under sustainable conditions. We want to create functional and straightforward designs, suitable for everyday life.

How are our products made?

All our accessories are created out of high-quality bio calf leather, tanned and finished with 100% biodegradable products - we don’t use chrome nor any other hard metals throughout the process. Working with natural products, we want to encourage sustainability.

To increase the longevity of our products, we finish the leather with a water-repellent coating. This way, we invest in sophisticated and qualitative materials, helping you buy things that last.
