Sometimes one needs a deep breath, a soothing cup of tea and a ray of sunlight in order to rebooth. To return to where it all started and remain in the here
and now at the same time. This new fall / winter collection symbolizes that process: the stumble, the struggle and the epiphany. Staying true to myself is the only way to go.
What kind of bag would I want to wear? Every design is a reflection of myself and I designed it only for two people: you and me.

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 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.
