There is something different about the fashion created in the northern latitudes of Europe. A trained eye notices it straight away. The clean cuts, the details and the love for grey, black and earthy tones.
There is seldom an outrageous colour, but always a statement and celebration of sophisticated simplicity, perfectly representing the cities and the people in this part of the European continent. In this case it is the handmade leather design by Väska, transforming a classic line into anything less than the ordinary.
The brand is influenced in all its designs by the Fenno-Swedish origins of the designer, thus following a very Nordic and pure line combined with a Mediterranean touch.
All the products are 100 % handmade in a little studio in Väska with the highest attention to detail and a passion for traditional leather craftsmanship, using only the finest leather and natural fabrics. Being handmade in limited quantities and individually numbered, no two creations are exactly the same, each making its own unique statement.
A Nordic aesthetic and a strong craftsmanship characterize the leather bags that are made to wear for more than just one season. As the designer says, I always attempt to be true to myself, following a less-is-more mantra by creating products that are minimalistic, timeless and functional but also visually captivating at the same time and long-lasting, thus preventing them from being placed into the commercial fashion industry.
By close consideration and strong-focused attention to details such as brass hardware and simple but well-made cuts, timeless pieces for the urban fashionista are constructed in the studio of Väska.
With an appreciation for fine leather goods, and a knack for smart, simple design, Väska incorporates strength and elegance into each piece. Every product is carefully crafted by hand using undyed, locally sourced natural vegetable tanned leather. With sunlight and regular wear the leather develops into a beautifully rich, golden brown color. The products improve with age and take on a character all their own.
The Second collection (KAAMOS) continues Väska's passion for natural leather and traditional craftsmanship alongside experimenting and applying Nordic aesthetics. The leather Bags reflect dedication to function, design and innovation, which is ever present. Inspired by Origami, the shapes that emerge from geometry result in functional and aesthetically pleasing products.
The product range encompasses everything from leather iPhone Cases, to bags, bracelets and clutches. The final result is a line of bags and accessories offering unique and contemporary interpretations of timeless styles. It's all about the small details, that's what makes these small leather goods by Väska so incredible.
