Artisanal – making of

The Artisanal Edition:

Nothing is permanent
Nothing is finished
Nothing is perfect

To further pursue the path leading back to the roots, Agnes went to the Mugello in Tuscany, to learn the traditional techniques of leather goods making from an Italian master.

The Artisanal Edition is a collection of one of a kind pieces, made by hand in the atelier of AGNES NORDENHOLZ in Berlin, using the traditional saddlestich technique. Only vegetable tanned leather from the best tanneries in Germany and Italy are used, showing the typical wrinkles and little imperfections, tanned according to a tradition, that dates back centuries.

The leather has a natural tone and will develop a beautiful patina with time. Or it is colored without any chemical finishes, showing a naturalness, that only leather without covering can show.
