We certainly do; 'The seemingly magical process of transformation, creation or combination' These are the elements we credit with making every Opelle handbag special beyond the simple sum of its parts
The Atelier works in small batches paced to demand, typically four bags at a time. Leathers are ethically sourced and produced, always a by-product of the food industry. Our suppliers have become trusted friends after a decade of partnership.
Opelle lauds the beauty that arises only from having the confidence to listen to our inner voice. When we heed our instincts, it makes for the most interesting stories, the most authentic people, and the most wonderful art.
It is a designer’s responsibility to create something elemental. It must stand the test of time, not just with regards to quality, but as a lasting impression of a creative point of view
