I recently got introduced to a leather bag company from Amsterdam. As a lot of other women, bags and shoes are my weakness, and I can never have enough of either of them!
When I read the history of Monsak on their website, and how owner and founder Margriet started with her company, I instantly recognised myself. I have always had difficulty finding a cool real leather bag that isn’t mass made or extremely overpriced. Monsak really solves this issue for me. They have several styles of bags standard in their workshop, but even cooler is that you can actually customise a bag, choose the leather, colour and cut. And even more exciting, you can book a workshop and make your own bag there too!
I went to meet Margriet in her workshop in Amsterdam. A lovely place in the West part of the city. Where I was allowed to watch them (and help a tiny bit) make two bags for me.
You can see the progress and end result below!
Keep your eyes peeled on my blog and Instagram on how to get your hands on one of these very very soon!
Many thanks to the Monsak team!
