Hello there! And welcome to this ellen:truijen website. Have a look around and get inspired by Ellen’s personal blog. Designer Ellen Truijen makes leather bags and accessories that stand out because of their simplicity, craftsmanship and thought through detailing. Handmade arm candy for ladies (and gentlemen too!) who like practical, minimalist designs to highlight their personal style. The spring-summer ’16 collection consists of a small line of new basic bags with feminine, curvy lines and a more luxurious line called ‘Eternal Treasures’ excelling in über-stylish subtlety.
The complete collection is produced in the Netherlands. We only work with small family businesses and know exactly who worked on which bag. This is how we can guarantee our high quality levels and sleep well at night. We provide local businesses with work and keep in honour what is left, of a beautiful, once blooming Dutch craft. If particular leather is not available at Dutch tanneries we look for it in Italy but we never stray outside Europe. From thread to lining to the best running zippers of the world.
