Value in the details

Form follows function

An important inspiration for their handbags is the principle of "Form Follows Function", as it was developed in Modernism. It is based on abstraction, which is created by clean lines and geometric shapes in which functionality plays the main role. This principle, combined with responsible and efficient use of materials is in their design.

You might wonder...

First of all, leather is a natural material that naturally changes a bit with use. Expect your natural leather bag to change slightly color with years, but this is part of its beauty. All this being said, we recommend keeping your bag in a dust bag when not in use and to use a leather protector once in a while.

If you like to travel light bringing just the bare necessities you can opt for the Wallet L or Fanny pack. The first is quite think as well so you will be able to carry around your cards, money and keys. The Fanny pack instead has more space and it's divided in 3 sections. Ideal to fit your phone, keys, tissues and a small wallet/ card holder.
The Knapsack bag, the circle bag and the Z.W. Handbag have a big compartment to bring around also an umbrella, a waterbottle a scarf...for those who always want to be ready! Just in case...opt for bigger bags! 😎

First of all the material used by Anouck and Thomas is treated with maximum attention and respect. The design and production process of a handbag can waste much less if made with intention. They use the pleating technique and cut out the minimum necessary. By keeping the material as intact as possible, leather can be easily disassembled and reused after its life cycle.
They don't add anything that can't be recycled. No metal buttons, no plastic.
This is good design!
