1. What led to the inception/creation of your brand?
My love for craft, natural materials and creating. I had a strong feeling I wanted to create by using my hands and my hands only. I also have deep appreciation for long lasting designs, things must last and be slow. They must be given the time to be born and after to live and keep in living.
2. Why do you do what you do?
It comes from inside, I am drawn to design and then to create. It feels natural to me, almost like I have been doing this all my life.
3. What are one or two important things to note about your brand?
It's conscious, every stitch and knot is made with the utmost attention.
And it's pure.
4. When you're designing a new item/collection, where do you feel you find your inspiration?
As I am very visual person I get inspired by images and also by nature, I have a love for round formed shapes.
Also books inspire me and conversations with my fiends.
I start by designing in my head and this can go on for months then I draw on paper and after I create the design in leather. I should do it in paper first but I never end up doing so.
5. What's next in your studio, any new projects that you would like to share with us?
There are a few new collaborations coming up and it's all about combining different crafts, very excited! Only limited editions of course. Also I am working on new line of handbags made out another material than leather but with leather details.

M/S SHUTTLE BY MISMO
This Sepia and Navy carryall is perfect for traveling, either on a quick weekend trip or use it as a carry on. But it also works well in lieu of a briefcase. It's made from a custom heavy-duty plain-woven Italian canvas and nylon. (All fabrics have a water-repellent coating and are easy to clean with a moistened cloth.)
GORDON FOLIO BY STEVE MONO
Handmade in Spain in strictly limited quantities, this folio by Steve Mono is a great companion, offering double hidden magnet closure, and lined in an artful combination of natural-color fabric, trimmed with cognac leather details.
MONEY CLIP WALLET BY ANCHOR BRIDGE
The experts in Japan at Anchor Bridge have created a beautiful interpretation of an everyday carry with this handmade money clip wallet, from a luxurious camouflage print leather from Azzurra, Toscana. The inside is lined from handsome Buttero leather from Coneria Walpier in Italy.
KNIT SOCKS FROM ANONYMOUS ISM
If there's one thing every man needs come autumn, it's a handful of super comfortable, well made socks. Made in Japan, these work great in boots or sneakers, and add a pop of color in loafers or bluchers.

MAUDE HELINE SHIRT
Maude is a Brooklyn based designer who brings her French sensibility to Brooklyn. The perfect white shirt is always useful and I’ve always had a thing for poplin. This shirt is designed with great details, from the lace inset to the amazing backside cut out.
These are the perfect pair of denim to wear over and over, in a fit that is comfortable and versatile. They are worth the investment, as they break in beautifully and instantly, quickly becoming a go to jean choice.
DOUCE GLOIRE WRAP
I bought one of these scarves at Bon Marche in Paris a few years back and was determined to bring the line to Roztayger ever since. The cashmere knit is super soft yet sturdy. Use it as a scarf or a wrap, also great for travel or daily life.
ANNE GRAND CLEMENT POUCH
Beautiful and sturdy – her pouches are like small works of art. But don’t put them away in your drawer, these are meant to be seen. Use them well – eye candy that is also functional is the best kind.
MARYAM NASSIR PUMPS
Winter white looks fresh lately for year round. It’s a neutral – which makes it easy to integrate into your wardrobe. The shape of the pump is a classic so you won’t regret your purchase next year.
CLARE V BAG
I love that the Henri is a mix of soft shape but firm leather, the perfect balance for a casual bag.
