Behind the Scenes: In the Studio


Designer, Vicki von Holzhausen sketches hundred of designs, both by hand and using digital programs, to come up with her initial design themes.

Many aspects are considered during the design process from understanding our customer, to deciding on sizes and proportions, to coming up with unique construction techniques. All these facets need to be worked through before choosing the final sketches.


Materials and colors are chosen simultaneously in order to capture the theme of the sketches.

von Holzhausen creates the 1st paper patterns of each style in the design studio. These are then used by the workshop to construct the 1st leather samples.
