In a basement at Store Kongensgade in Copenhagen you can find Leather Projects. A discreet front, but in there is a workshop making and selling high quality leather goods. It is beautiful work and hand made. The product are bags, wallets and laptop sleeves; highly stylish accessories.
“It’s the story of a journey into the world of leather goods. Guided by a passion for craftsmanship and well-made products. Inspired by scandinavian minimalism and the Japanese Kanso philosophy.
Kanso (簡素) is about simplicity or the elimination of clutter.
Things are expressed in a plain, simple, natural manner. It teaches us not to think in terms of decoration but in terms of clarity, a kind of clarity that may be achieved through omission or exclusion of the non-essential.”
