Women and bags, it is always a thing. And yes, also with me. The problem with most bags is that they are very seasonal – and thus do not fit well with my closet after a while. So, when I was looking for a more durable bag, Studio Zaczkiewicz attracted my eyes. The owner, Beata, has designed high-quality leather bags and cases which such a clean style that lasts much longer than just a season.
SMALL DESIGN; BIG ENOUGH TO HOLD YOUR ESSENTIALS.
The bags and cases of Studio Zaczkiewicz have everything I look for in a bag. At first sight, you think that it is small, but it is actually big enough to carry all your essentials with you!
The small cases are designed in a way that it fits all of your cards, and you can even put money in it. In the larger case, you can also store your passport, which makes it an ideal travel essential!
CAREFULLY SELECTED MATERIALS.
The designer, Beata, has kept the bags simple in design, but carefully selected her materials. All of her products are made of rejected leather, while the quality remains high.
I fell in love with the material of Studio Zaczkiewicz’s bag, the uniqueness of leather. The leather itself undergoes a variety of changes when it is being used, so each bag gets a unique look. Thereby, Beata only buys “small pieces” of leather, meaning that every bag is different and that you can choose between several types of leather; some bags are a bit stiffer, and others might have more scars.
HANDMADE WITH LOVING CARE.
All bags and cases are handmade by Beata herself. She puts all her love into making these products and spends a lot of time selecting the right pieces of leather. I visited her at her studio to see and feel all the different bags and cases, and was overwhelmed that everything is made with loving care.
