ABOUT THE BRAND
Tsatsas equals clarity and quality in design, materials used, and the way they are treated. The German-based label takes a singular approach to luxury that is immediately perceivable; something that can be felt and seen straight away. Elegant and possessing a cutting-edge contemporary feel, the collection is modish yet stands entirely apart from fleeting trends.
Handcrafted in Germany with the greatest care and precision, each Tsatsas design serves to heighten the natural beauty and purity of leather as a material. Cut, design and proportion come together to create the clarity and simplicity of the bags, with a key focus of the design process being the search for a perfect balance of function, aesthetics and execution.
Tsatsas was established by Esther Schulze-Tsatsas and Dimitrios Tsatsas in 2012, with Dimitrios’ family having a long tradition of leather working. His father’s atelier, located in the German city of Offenbach am Main, has been producing fine leather goods for more than three decades.
Although very much influenced by traditional ways of working, Dimitrios Tsatsas soon came to find the repertoire of classical craftwork too limited. Subsequently choosing to study industrial design, he then worked as a creative director in the design field for ten years. Esther Schulze-Tsatsas studied architecture and was then, for a lengthy period, responsible for the production of major design events.
Through an intensive analysis of design, fashion and art, Esther Schulze-Tsatsas and Dimitrios Tsatsas have together developed a real feel for the design vocabulary of our times, with their designs evincing both an eye for fine detail and a sensitivity to the interaction between shape and material. With the establishment of the Tsatsas label and the decision to combine craftwork with design, the two have returned to their family roots.
