Ever since we opened our first Tenue de Nîmes store in 2008 we have been honoured to work with our the extraordinary Ellen Truijen, a female Dutch designer specialised in handcrafted leather bags. And since we put the first hand-crafted leather accessories in our store we found her products are a true addiction: There is now way back. Ever since Ellen started her brand in 2002 the collections were based on three specific values: 'timelessness', 'sobriety' and 'simplicity'. All her designs are made from the best leather deriving from soft goatskin to rough suede and although not a single piece is the same, they are all alike. Every Ellen Truijen bag is hand-made in the Netherlands. Ellen develops all her collections at her Maastricht based studio. Here entire production is done in cooperation with small family businesses from the Southern part of the Netherlands.
These intimate factories provide a unique heart and soul to every single product. Check out a nice mood video above. Some of her latest products are shown below (but to truly witness this amazing product come smell, touch and feel the bags at our Tenue de Nîmes store).
