We are Emile and Simon and our passion is making leather goods. As collectors of luxury leather goods, we developed a passion for the product. This passion grew into a dream to learn the wonderful craft of maroquinerie ourselves. Through a large dose of self-discipline and perseverance, we learned the tricks of the trade. It was a welcome respite from our busy jobs in the health sector. We were not soft on ourselves, however, and strived for perfection: only the best quality was good enough for us. It became a search for the best leathers, tools, the optimal layout of our workshop, … but also a search for ourselves, whereby we realised that we wanted to do this for the rest of our lives.




Where can you find us? We have our own studio in the Belgian town of Oostkamp, a thriving village adjacent to the world city of Bruges.
