Architectural Elegance meets Italian Craftmanship in Luxury Handbags

The brand handcrafts exceptional leather bags that are designed in Amsterdam and made in Italy from the finest vegetable-tanned leather. The design ethos focuses on creating high-quality pieces that combine classic elegance with modern ingenuity and architectural lines.

Merryl works and lives in Amsterdam. In Art School she felt unable to fit in as a Fashion student and switched to the Audiovisual Arts. After graduation she was involved in various film and multimedia projects. Gradually her interests shifted to the applied arts. Education in shoemaking awakened her to the infinite possibilities of leather application. It was in creating bags that she finally could express her artistic vision. Her eponymous label was launched in 2019.

‘I am always on the look-out for new shapes, there could be a bag in anything’ says Tielman. This playful approach combined with self-imposed constraints results in designs that are as enigmatic in appearance as they are practical in use. Subtly inventive designs that combine a variety of interior utilities with dazzling exteriors.
